The Houston Texans have their starting quarterback. The Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos do not.
Brock Osweiler has agreed to a deal with the Texans, according to reports on ESPN, NFL Network and 9 News in Denver.
The Texans have wanted to bolster their quarterback position after last year’s primary starter, Brian Hoyer, laid an egg in their playoff loss to the Chiefs. They now think Osweiler is the man to lead them not just to the playoffs, but deep into the playoffs.
But as big a story as the Texans getting their quarterback is, the bigger story may be the Broncos’ search for a quarterback. With Peyton Manning retiring, the defending champs now have neither of their quarterbacks from last season. They’ll have to start over from scratch on offense, and hope their defense can keep them on top.
