The Texans have a young, talented, mobile quarterback to run their offense.

So naturally, they found the opposite kind to back him up.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have are signing quarterback Brandon Weeden.

The 34-year-old Weeden was with the Texans last offseason, but spent most of the year with the Titans. But the Titans signed Blaine Gabbert to back up Marcus Mariota, leaving Weeden to look for a new clipboard.

Weeden has started 25 NFL games. He won six of them.

That means the Texans will be praying for the return to form from Deshaun Watson after last year’s torn ACL, such that they weren’t already.

  1. Who does this guy have pictures of? He has been awful everywhere he was been, but keeps getting jobs. This is what, year 6?

  2. This guy only played one real season. 2012. And he had 5 wins – for the CLEVELAND BROWNS. That’s saying something that the guy had 5 wins for the BROWNS – in one season at that.

  3. brandon weeden is garbage. and so are the texans. what a sad sad day that the texans were born hahahha

  4. If the Texans do NOT bring in RG3 to back up Watson-THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GOT LAST YEAR IF he is not ready or has to go down. This is just foolishness. Which the Texans have been through time and time again. Heck, if they had brought in RG3 last year they could have continued to run the same offense with a high degree of success as they did with Watson.

  5. The Texans fans better hope and pray that Deshaun Watson comes back better than ever because if he does this Texans team is in for a long season. Brandon Weeden!! Did the Texans forget what B. Weeden did in Cleveland and in Dallas!

    There is something wrong when QBs aren’t judged by their ability to perform on the football field!

  6. Don’t worry. Plenty of people are used to being judged on something other than their ability. Only until the other players unite, will colin be given a chance. That’s not going to happen as most of these guys have been getting special treatment their whole life and primarily look out for themselves. Don’t feel bad for colin as colin stayed home on election day.

  7. I’m reading a lot of fear from other teams that Deshaun is going to run right over the top of them. Mostly from North Texas.

  8. Why bash Weeden? He’s a backup who knows he’s a backup. He also knows the offense and has played well for Houston in that role. Being a backup doesn’t mean he sucks. It means he isn’t franchise QB!

    I agree. But it doesnt make sense for a team that is poised to make a run for the SB!!! That changes things. In such cases it is smarter to bring in a guy like RG3 who can step in and play the exact same way and at the same level as Watson. I mean just like Philly was able to do with Wentz and Foles. RG3 is closer to Watson than Weeden ever will be. Weeden just isn’t the guy to keep this type of system operating effectively with the season or SB on the line. That player is RG3, like it or not.
