Texans have made no contact with Kaepernick, yet

On the heels of a report from Jay Glazer of FOX as to a push within the Texans locker room to pursue quarterback Colin Kaepernick, quarterback Tom Savage was unable to lead Houston to a home win over the woeful Colts. Which in theory should make the Texans interested in a potential upgrade, especially with the Jaguars and Titans also winning on Sunday.

For now, though, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, there has been no contact between the Texans and Kaepernick’s representatives.

The Texans quickly signed Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates after losing rookie Deshaun Watson for the season. At 3-5 through eight games, and two games behind the two teams who are tied at 5-3 for the division lead, the Texans could soon be entering must-win territory.

The Texans travel to L.A. to face the Rams next week, and then they host the Cardinals, followed by a Monday night trip to Baltimore.

  1. Why? Even if they do want him he’ll probably want more than the $14M he opted out of.

  2. If he had turned down any offers you would believe everybody would be reporting on that by now. Even when he hasn’t gotten an offer people were reporting left and right he was turning down teams.

    He will be signed soon. Do you want Jim Irsay having to give testimony under oath? Dude is going to give up where jimmy hoffa is, let alone how he won’t sign Kaepernick because he won’t give him any weed.

    The bigger concern is Jerry Jones under oath. Lawyers for Colin K fear Jerry just won’t stop talking, and after 24 hours of so of Jerryisms, they may beg to drop the case.

  3. Why would they? Who would want an Anti-American, Pro-Fidel Castro mass murderer, police-hating piece of crap on their roster?

    Yo Colin, your hero Fidel killed all his enemies by firing squad, without due process. What do you think of that?

  4. They could put Watson at qb with a cast on his leg, and he would still be better than Crapernick.

  5. Why? What if they sign him then drop him later on for lack of performance? Do they think his accusations are going away, specially if the signing had some clause that included no kneeling. Just stop with this guy already. Draft QB’s.

  6. Whatever the league minimum is for anyone that signs with any NFL team. Take it or leave it. You leave it, there goes your complaint. Accept it, whatever happens happens. (He won’t take a league minimum. It defeats his whole purpose. End of your collusion argument.)

  7. Vince Lombardi would sign Kaepernick in a heart beat because for him, winning was all that mattered.
    Hate to spoil your continued delusions but Lombardi would have been too smart to sign a cancer like kaepernick.

    Kaepernick was so great that he got benched and then was going to get cut if he didn’t opt out of his contract. Wonder why SF didn’t want to sign him to a big contract, as awesome as he is?

  9. I’m at the point now where I wish Kaep would pull a Ricky Williams, go travel the world and do yoga and smoke weed for a living without anyone knowing where he is at any given time.

    I don’t care if you agree with his choices or not, right now he just needs to distance himself as far as he can from the NFL and concern himself with the causes he wants to champion. Spend some time out of the news and if you want another shot in the league, keep working on your craft, maybe try the CFL, rehab your image and come back around in a year or two when the stink has washed off your name.

  10. Hire him and let him do what he does – play awful. This will end his lawsuit because his play will be exhibits 1-ten million why he should never play again.

  11. Still waiting to hear from Colin Kaepernick… We’ve only heard from every person that is willing to support him, but not CK himself… why is that?

    But the inmates don’t run the prison, right?

  13. Kaepernick lost his job to Blaine Gabbert. Why isn’t PFT pushing hard for Blaine to get a job since he was judged to be the better QB?

  14. Kaepernick has sued the NFL. Owners and the Commissioner are getting subpoenas. Shouldn’t he be outlawed for ever from playing in the NFl again. It’s just smart business not to employ a person that sues their employer.

  15. I watch every second of the Texans games and root as hard as anyone. I have Two Texans flags in my front yard. I loved watching Watson even with Bill’s poor play calling and clock management. I can watch Savage too, not as much fun. But, If we take Kapernick, my watching and rooting are OVER.
