The Houston Texans need a quarterback and they are calling one in this week who may be able to help. While not a choice for the future starter of the team, the Texans are likely bringing in free agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to replace Matt Schaub whenever his situation is resolved.
According to Mark Berman from FOX26 in Houston, the Texans worked out Fitzpatrick on Thursday which is something that demonstrates interest in signing the veteran backup.

The question is how interested are the Texans in signing Fitzpatrick, and the fact of the matter may be not really. While he’s not a bad option, let’s not forget that Schaub is still on the team and is still a great option for the Texans.
As much as fans in Houston want to resent Schaub, they’ll likely unite in the notion that he’s a better option than Fitzpatrick at this point.
It’s not as though Schaub or Fitzpatrick will start though, as whoever is drafted in May will be in line to take over in August and September.
