The Texans are one of the few teams that seem to be a viable trade option for current 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
But after recently releasing Kevin Hogan, the team has done some work on another signal-caller.
Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Houston brought in Kurt Benkert for a workout on Tuesday. Garafolo notes that Benkert won’t be signed for now, but could be an option for the Texans down the road.
Before that, Benkert was on the Falcons from 2018-2020. He was on injured reserve in 2019, but was on the practice squad in 2018 and 2020.
