Saints' Tom Savage: Returns to practice following Friday's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (undisclosed) returned to practice Saturday, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Savage was forced to leave Friday's practice with an undisclosed injury. With the veteran quarterback back in the mix, it doesn't seem like there is too much concern moving forward. Savage currently holds the edge over both Taysom Hill and J.T. Barrett for the No. 2 quarterback position in New Orleans.

Saints' Tom Savage: Exits practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage left Thursday's practice early with an undisclosed injury, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Savage is the only quarterback behind Drew Brees that has NFL experience, as Taysom Hill has only played special teams and undrafted rookie J.T. Barrett has yet to strut his stuff. Savage struggled last season in Houston, completing 125 of 223 attempts (56 percent) for 1,412 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions. The Saints may be motivated to see what Hill and Barrett can develop into as they search for a successor to Brees, who only has two more years under contract.

Saints' Tom Savage: Finds home in New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints and Savage agreed to a contract Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Selected in the fourth round of the 2014 draft by the Texans, Savage didn't fare well in his 13 appearances (nine starts) over the last four seasons. Notably, his touchdown rate was a pitiful 2.2 percent, he tossed more interceptions (six) than TDs (five), and surpassed 300 yards in a game just one time. In his new locale, Savage will be in a cushy spot behind Drew Brees, who recently re-upped with the Saints for another two years.

Texans' Tom Savage: Cuts weight in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (concussion) posted last week on his personal Twitter account that he's shed 17 pounds during the offseason.

After losing the starting quarterback job to first-round pick Deshaun Watson following a disastrous showing in Week 1, Savage reclaimed the No. 1 gig in early November following Watson's season-ending ACL tear. In his second turn as starter, Savage did little to assert himself as anything more than a backup-level NFL talent, finishing the campaign with a 5:6 TD:INT ratio and a 56 percent completion rate while averaging 6.3 yards per attempt across eight outings. Savage was sidelined for the final three weeks of the season while recovering from a concussion, but the expectation is he'll enter spring workouts without any limitations. It remains to be seen to which team Savage will report to OTAs, as the 27-year-old will hit free agency March 14 and may not re-sign with Houston.

Texans' Tom Savage: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have placed Savage (concussion) on IR.

As a result, T.J. Yates will continue to start at QB for the Texans for the team's final two games. Savage thus finishes the 2017 season with a 56.1 completion percentage and 1,412 passing yards to go along with five TDs and six picks over the course of eight appearances. Savage is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, but it's possible that the Texans will look to keep him around to provide depth behind franchise QB Deshaun Watson, who is bouncing back from a torn ACL that he suffered Nov. 2.
