Texans may be letting a QB go before training camp

Maybe Texans coach Bill O’Brien will win an award for his remake of Sophie’s Choice.

According to Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien indicated he might prefer to only take three quarterbacks into training camp, which would mean releasing one of the many fine passers on the roster.

“Any time you have four, . . . I don’t think it’s easy to divide the reps,” O’Brien said. “I think you can really get three guys reps in practice, which is basically what we’ve been doing. I know that’s probably not the easiest thing for those guys. But three out of four have been getting reps.”

What kind of monster would make a man choose between Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates, Case Keenum and Tom Savage?

Actually, it’s really down to two. Fitzpatrick has $4 million in guaranteed money coming his way, and they didn’t draft Savage in the fourth round to cut him after a few months.

That means either Yates or Keenum could be on the way out?

Keenum took over last season for the declining Matt Schaub, and then declined himself. He’s 0-8 as a starter, and has a career 78.2 rating, to Yates’ 2-3 and 71.4.

Whatever will they do without one of them?
