1. Davis Mills needs competition at the starting quarterback role in ’22

As much fun it has been to see some progression with Davis Mills as the starting quarterback in the latter stages of the ’21 NFL season, the Houston Texans must bring in some real competition for Mills this offseason to make him the best quarterback he can be.

General manager Nick Caserio must make the decision of starting quarterback priority No. 1 this offseason, and if Mills closes out the ’21 season with more improvement, that should go a long way in the ’22 offseason, but it shouldn’t make him the starter.

The Houston Texans need good competition this offseason for their entire roster, and there is no doubt that Caserio will bring in that competition to make the Texans’ roster better than it has been in ’21.

Quarterback has to be the main focus, and even with some success from Mills in ’21, more has to be proven before he becomes the answer of being the next franchise quarterback, because a lot needs to happen between Week 17 and the start of the ’22 season for that to be an option.

Better competition needs to occur for the Houston Texans to become the best they can be, and finding the best at quarterback will make that process happen sooner rather than later.
