Houston Texans Sign Case Keenum

Down two QBs already and quite possibly down three, the Houston Texans have re-signed fan favorite Case Keenum off the Rams' practice squad. Texans fans process the news on Battle Red Blog.

Like Michael Jordan, he's back.

I believe John McClain had it first:

Hyperbole aside, this is a logical move. Before he was waived at the end of training camp, Keenum was exposed to Bill O'Brien's offense throughout the past offseason and, say what you will about Keenum's shortcomings as a QB in the NFL, there aren't any better options out there after Week 15 of the regular season.

With the very real possibility that today's MRI could end Tom Savage's season, the Texans may well have gone from a QB depth chart of Ryan Mallett-Ryan Fitzpatrick-Tom Savage to Thad Lewis-Case Keenum--QB To Be Named Later in a matter of three weeks.  Amazing.
