2014 Houston Texans Free Agency: Browns, Raiders, Jets Interested In Matt Schaub

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Matt Schaub is universally expected to hit the open market some time in the next couple weeks, and a few desperate teams around the league are already lining up.

NFL insider Ian Rapaport reported this morning that multiple teams will have interest in Matt Schaub if and when he is released.

The Browns would make sense as a destination for Schaub, considering that the only quarterback who flashed any competency for the Dawg Pound in 2013 tore his ACL, and Schaub's best years in Houston came under Kyle Shanahan, who is now the offensive coordinator for Cleveland. The Browns also possess two of the league's more exciting young weapons in Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, as well as a perennial All-Pro blind side protector in Joe Thomas. It is conceivable that Cleveland would want to use Schaub as a stop-gap at quarterback in order to develop a young passer taken in this year's draft. If reports are to be believed, perhaps that draftee will be the younger brother of the man that Schaub replaced in Houston - Derek Carr. It's funny how the universe works sometimes.

The Raiders and the Jets are two other options that Schaub and his agent will likely look at if he is eventually cut. With Oakland's lack of any true game breaking weapons and New York's ongoing development of Geno Smith, however, neither of those destinations should be very attractive for an aging quarterback who wants one last shot at redemption. While there is still a long way to go in this year's free agency period, I would bet that Matt Schaub will be making his money in Ohio next season.
