NFL Rumors: Ravens’ keeping an eye on Texans’ Yates, Keenum?

Ladies and gentlemen I would like to point out that we’re only 10 days away from the NFL Draft which means we’re getting closer and closer to the pre-season.

I don’t know about you guys, but I just got very excited. Now there’s no doubt that the Houston Texans need help with their quarterback position, but they could be picking defensive tackle Jadeveon Clowney number one overall.

With the organization trading away former starter Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders, the only two quarterbacks on the roster as of today happen to be T.J. Yates and Case Keenum.

Keenum picked up eight starts with the Texas last season, finished 137/253 for 1,760 passing yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions. The 26 year old quarterback also picked up a rushing touchdown. Yates on the other hand who put up a career high 949 passing yards during the 2011 season, only appeared in three games.

He did not make a start but threw for 113 yards and two interceptions. Now according to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are ‘keeping an eye’ on both quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Case Keenum.

The Baltimore Ravens hired former Houston Texans quarterback Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator who obviously coached both players. The only backup behind Joe ‘Money Man’ Flacco is Tyrod Taylor. Taylor has struggled, so it would make sense that Kubiak could talk the Ravens into trading for one of his former quarterbacks.

They know his system, so why not? Right now I think that Case Keenum would be the obvious choice to back up Flacco.

    Case Keenum is a hometown Houston Boy that isn’t going anywhere…He got thrown into a really bad situation…Not to mention he had the Best 3 Starts Stats wise for a QB in the NFL EVER! With a beat up Texans team and coaches making some really bad calls. Give Keenum a O Line and some WR that are down field threats maybe a running back without 4 broken ribs and watch Keenum “Do His Thing!” Go watch his 2013 Gunslinger Highlights on Youtube…”HE WILL LIGHT IT UP!”

      The Case Keenum story is just beginning.

    See you are the blind fans that gives real fans of the game bad reps. Yes I am a texans fan and i would like to see Case Keenum “LIGHT IT UP” But if you think that all he needs is a better O-line and better playcalling then you sir or ma’am need to take the blinders off and check the tape. Keenum struggled at times and clearly has to work on some things. Now can he fix the problems and succeed in the NFL? Well i hope so because I would like to see him succeed. But i am not a blind TEXANS FAN either.

      Of course a virtual rookie player and esp a QB “have something’s to work out”.
      It is a life long process of improvement. I also hope that Case will succeed.

      Ryan…I was Blind until I found Case Keenum…LoL…I Watch Case play EVER single game since his 1st game his Sophomore year, and new in that first game he would be playing in the NFL at a very high Level…I have watched and played football my whole life…Keenum does things on the field that can’t be taught…He has the “IT” Factor Sir! When you find yourself this year smiling and shaking your head cause you cant believe what Case did…remember what I said, “He Has “IT” “…

      • Doug Pitre

        I think that Case has “it”. Please, every not ever, and knew not new.
