The Ryan Mallett-era ended with a thud on Tuesday when the Texans decided to get rid of their backup quarterback after he missed a team flight over the weekend.
That wasn't the only lowlight from the Mallett-era in Houston though -- his entire 14-month stint with the Texans probably qualifies as one giant lowlight.
Let's take a look at how his career in Houston went down.
The Mallett-era started on Aug. 31, 2014, when the New England Patriots sent their backup quarterback to Houston in exchange for a conditional draft pick. Right away, a lot of people were wondering why the Texans went after Mallett when they had Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie Tom Savage on the roster.

Mallett sat behind Fitzpatrick on the depth chart until Nov. 5, 2014, when Bill O'Brien decided to name Mallett the Texans starter for Houston's game that week against the Browns. In what might've been the highlight of Mallett's brief career in Houston, the quarterback threw for 211 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-7 win.
Even though Mallett only started two games and suffered a season-ending injury in 2014, the Texans felt the need to sign him to a two-year deal in March 2015 that included $1.75 million in guaranteed money for 2015.

Mallett got some good news heading into Week 2 when O'Brien named him the starter for the Texans' game against Carolina. The Texans got some bad news though: Mallett only completed 46.5 percent of his passes and the Texans lost.
Mallett would remain the team's starter until a Week 5 game against the Colts, when he got benched in favor of Hoyer. Mallett left the game for one play to get examined for an injury and lost his job because Hoyer got hot.
Needless to say, Mallett was not happy.

In four games as the Texans starter in 2015, Mallett went 1-3.
Mallett's 14-month stay in Houston ends with:
Five: Touchdown passes.
Four: Starts in 2015 with Houston.
Three: Losses in 2015 with Houston.
Two: Total wins in two years (2-4).
One: Missed flight.
One: Missed practice due to oversleeping.
