Case Keenum is headed back to where it all began.

The quarterback is signing with the Texans, according to multiple reports.

After a strong collegiate career at the University of Houston, Keenum entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Texans. He started eight games for the club in 2013 before he began to bounce back and forth between the Rams and Texans for the next couple of years.

Keenum, 35, spent last season with the Bills, backing up Josh Allen. he appeared in two games and threw just seven passes.

The quarterback started two games for the Browns in 2021, winning both.

Keenum’s most successful season was in 2017 when he took over as the starting quarterback for Sam Bradford and compiled an 11-3 record en route to a postseason appearance — and the Minneapolis Miracle postseason victory over the Saints.

While the Texans are widely expected to take a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, Keenum gives Houston some cushion in case that QB isn’t ready to play right away.

  1. This is an awesome signing. Now they have a competent QB who can be that 4-15 game stopgap until the #2 overall pick QB is ready.

  2. The biggest mistake of the Zimmer/Spielman era was not franchise tagging Case and seeing what he had for another year. Instead he walked, and in fairness did nothing in Denver, but Vikings picked up Cousins and rooted around in mediocrity until both Zim and Spielman were fired.

    And now the last vestiges of that team are being torn down.

  3. Probably the best backup in the NFL. I think the Vikings giving him the boot is a cautionary tale about the underrated value of team chemistry.

    5 years and $120 million to Kirk Cousins later, the Vikes still haven’t advanced as far as they did with Keenum. But billionaires still think the grass is greener.

  4. I always liked listening to this guy on the radio when he hosted American Top 40.

    I preferred him as the voice of Scooby Doo.

  6. I was really hoping Baker Mayfield would join the Houston Texans. We could use some funny commercials down here.

    Great backup & mentor for Young or Stroud.”

    Maybe a great backup & mentor for Mills!

    The Texans may trade back, get a draft haul of their own, build the offense and defense via draft & FA’s, & if Mills fails in 2023, get their franchise QB in 2024!
