The Houston Texans came into the season expecting to be playing football in January. Their season ended earlier than they would’ve liked, head coach Gary Kubiak was fired and everyone got an early start to their offseason.

For backup quarterback T.J. Yates that means hunting, and he posted a picture of a big buck he shot.

Of course he isn’t Washington Nationals’ Adam LaRoche, who killed a mountain lion with a bow.

Yates might not be back with the Texans, he isn’t considered a candidate to start in Houston and they could potentially be taking a quarterback in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

“It’s uncertainty, that’s all I really know right now,” Yates said, via the Houston Chronicle. “There’s going to be a new coach. I’ll just take it from there. I don’t know what the future holds for anybody, let alone me. But I’m a competitor. I want a chance to compete and play in this league. I know I can play at a high level. I just want that opportunity somewhere.”
