QB Case Keenum

Everyone keeps saying the Houston Texans should cut David Mills, and we're left wondering why. Why would you cut Mills? Mills is younger, has a stronger arm, and makes for a good backup. He can play, not at the same level as C.J. Stroud, but if Stroud goes down for two or three games, I have faith that Mills can win two of those three potential games. As for Keenum, not only do I know, in my bones that Keenum can't win two out of three anymore, I'm pretty sure Keenum can't win a Case Keenum lookalike contest at this point

Cutting Mills saves you about $3 million while cutting Keenum saves you two. If you trade Keenum, you can save $3 million. So if you're that hard up for an extra million, sure, get rid of Mills. Here's the thing though, you need a good backup quarterback and Mills is a good backup quarterback. The Browns nearly fell out of the playoff race this year because they didn't have a good backup.

Now, if you want to cut both Mills and Keenum because you think there is a better option? Ok, we're on board with that, but he better be a better option. Otherwise, you just threw a good quarterback out for no reason. Mills may not be better than a backup at this point, but he's better than Keenum and that's all that matters.
