Could another former Buffalo Bills quarterback be joining the Houston Texans?

As Mitchell Trubisky prepares to enter into free agency for the second time in as many years, the Houston Texans might just be his next starting gig. However, with Davis Mills presumably the only quarterback that will play in the 2022 NFL season, Houston will need another man on the roster.

Unfortunately for Tyrod Taylor, his performance when healthy for most of the year was not very good. The Miami game was an utter disaster from Taylor and filled with so many turnovers that would make any baker proud.

Whether Trubisky is brought in to the backup or at least compete for the starting job, Houston needs another guy on the roster. Jeff Driskel moved from quarterback to tight end last season, and only the football gods know if Deshaun Watson is going to play again.

Trubisky has as good of a shot as Mills to win the Houston Texans QB1 spot

Think about what Trubisky has gone through. Trubisky has way more NFL experience than Mills, and he took the humbling move to sit behind Josh Allen in Buffalo last year. Add in the experience of getting to poke the brain of Brian Daboll (now head coach of the New York Giants), and the chance to improve is there.

Is Trubisky better than Mills? Unfortunately, that question can’t be answered until and if he comes to H-Town.  Trubisky is more mobile, but Mills’ height and deep-ball game are just as much of a reason to believe that Mills can win the job.

It’s the offseason, and a one-year “prove it” deal for Trubisky wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. You’re only as good as your backup quarterback in the NFL.
