Bill O’Brien has kept the Texans competitive without what you’d call a stable quarterback situation, or a quarterback, for the last three years.
But if he wants a new contract, he’s going to have to wait.
According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans owner Bob McNair said he’d talk to O’Brien about an extension after this season, which will be the fourth of the five-year deal he signed when he took over the team.
“We’ll talk to him about it at the end of this year,” McNair said. “That’s typically when we do that sort of thing. . . .
“We’ll sit down and see what he’s [O’Brien] happy with and if he wants to be extended and see how we feel.”
The reality is, if he’s not in Houston, he’d be somewhere else soon. He’s 27-21, posted winning records each of his three seasons, and done so with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Hoyer, and Brock Osweiler as his quarterbacks.
