O'Brien happy with current QB situation with Texans
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bill O'Brien expressed disdain for a question Thursday night inferring that the Texans are still seeking their franchise quarterback.

"You know, 'until we find our quarterback' like I just want to make sure that just personally I'm clear on that," he said via ESPN. "We feel really good about our quarterback position. To be honest with you, I'm a little tired of hearing that."

The thought of the Texans addressing the situation in the first round seems a bit far-fetched when considering that premier talents Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were gone after two picks and no other top candidates were thought of that highly.

Houston is set to wage a competition between Ryan Mallett and free agent signing Brian Hoyer for the starting job. O'Brien is not complaining about that.

"These guys are in here competing," he said. "They're learning. They're doing a good job so far in the offseason workouts. We can't wait to get out there and start working with them."

Report: Jets to pursue QB Ryan Fitzpatrick if available
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick looking like the odd man out in Houston, he will "jump to the top of the Jets' list after he's inevitably released," reports the New York Daily News. Fitzpatrick, 32, played for Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey in Buffalo.

Houston would clear $3.2 million in cap space by cutting Fitzpatrick. The Texans have re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett and are said to be on the verge of signing quarterback Brian Hoyer, making Fitzpatrick expendable.

Report: Texans bring back QB Ryan Mallett
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Texans re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett to a two-year, $7 million deal, reports the Houston Chronicle. Mallett is expected to compete with Brian Hoyer, who is set to sign with Houston on Tuesday, the paper said.

The signings make quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick expendable. Releasing Fitzpatrick would free up $3.2 million in cap space, the paper noted.

Mallett threw for 400 yards in three games last season, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Both Mallett and Hoyer played for Texans coach Bill O'Brien when he was an offensive assistant with the Patriots.
