Your Houston Texans currently have four (4) QBs on the roster--Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates, and Tom Savage. When training camp begins next month, they may be down to three, John McClain reports. Bill O'Brien hinted that there simply may not be enough reps to go around:

"Any time you have four … I don’t think it’s easy to divide the reps," said O’Brien, following the seventh day of OTAs. "I think you can really get three guys reps in practice, which is basically what we’ve been doing. I know that’s probably not the easiest thing for those guys. But three out of four have been getting reps."

Although O'Brien didn't tip his hand as to who's ahead of who on the depth chart and stressed that the situation was "very competitive," McClain speculates that Fitzpatrick is QB1, followed by Keenum, then Yates, and with Savage bringing up the rear.

Barring a catastrophe of some sort, it stands to reason that Fitzpatrick and Savage will account for two of the QB gigs. That means Keenum or Yates will be the odd man out, be it before training camp or during preseason roster cuts. Which of the QBs do you think will be looking for a new team? And when do you believe that move will be made?
