The Houston Texans have found their backup quarterback in Kevin Hogan.

That’s precisely who fans of the Houston Texans thought would be brought in as the backup, right? That’s sarcasm.  It’s not a knock on Hogan at all, but nobody could put the finger on who the QB2 was going to be behind Davis Mills.

Hogan was recently released by the Tennessee Titans, most likely due to the team drafting Liberty QB Malik Willis in the third round. So what does Hogan bring to the table as a backup quarterback?

As a 5th round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2016, Hogan bounced around the league. He spent the entire 2016 and 2017 seasons with the Cleveland Browns, then had brief stops in Washington, Denver, and the final spot was Tennessee before coming to Houston.

A possible reason for this signing is that Hogan is a Stanford alumn, so that it might be the only quarterback room in the entire league with two passers from the same school. Hogan is 0-1 in his career with the statline of 60/101/4/7 (completions, attempts, touchdowns, interceptions).

Houston Texans must see something in Kevin Hogan that we don’t

Hogan’s resume isn’t that impressive, but what more can you ask of a 5th-round journeyman? Usually, there are more stats to indulge in for fans to get a clearer picture of who they’re getting.

Hopefully, this is a move that will never have to be used during a game because the chances of Hogan succeeding are so unknown since not even Pro Football Reference has numbers on him.

It’s Probably a depth move and a mentor for Davis Mills. Welcome to Houston, Mr. Hogan; let’s go win some games.
