The last three games of the season are going to be very interesting. The Texans and their fan base have been absolutely sucker punched with the horrible season that they are having. We already are going to have a new head coach and it has become obvious that Matt Schaub will not be returning next year. If he does, I think that the fans would go nuts. With that said their will be a new QB starting for the Texans in 2014. Will it be Case Keenum, a drafted QB, a veteran we trade for, or.....

There is still the cap situation that people will point to, but like any NFL team if they want a player bad enough they will make it work. Cutler, the former 1st round pick in 2006, was drafted by the Denver Broncos and later traded to the Chicago Bears in 2009. He is in his final year of his contract and the Bears have been making it known that they will not franchise tag him.
This is all pure speculation, but with Owner Bob McNair feeling there is still talent on the team, the Texans might not be content on letting a rookie quarterback or Keenum be the signal caller until they are ready. There are many different options that the Texans can take at quarterback and Cutler is just definitely one of them. The Texans could take Clowney or Barr with the first pick and fill some holes with the others and still be able to sign Jay Cutler. Signing Cutler or another veteran QB like him would probably bring us back to instant contention in a pretty weak AFC.
The thought of Cutler coming to Houston will be frowned upon by the majority of the fan base, but with NFL.com being plugged into front offices, this is the second time that Cutler’s name has been connected to the Texans. There are still decisions to be made, but the door feels to be open to any option at this point heading into the 2014 NFL season.
