FF Today's Take:The Texans released quarterback Case Keenum after the acquisition. Mallet was taken in the third-round of the 2011 draft by the Patriots but has thrown less than 10 passes in the regular season. Malett and Tom Savage will compete for the backup quarterback job behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Texans send quarterback T.J. Yates packing-- Tue Jun 17 4:25 pm --
FF Today's Take:The Texans announced earlier in the day that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback heading into training camp. Rookie Tom Savage will be the No. 3 QB behind Keenum. Yates has played sparingly (9 games) over the last three years and will look to catch on with another team prior to training camp.
