The Houston Texans are said to be looking hard at drafting a quarterback with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
But do they have something up their sleeve?
According to Peter Burns of 104.3 FM Denver, the Broncos have received multiple trade inquires about backup quarterback Brock Osweiler – one of which has come from the Houston Texans.
"Was told that one of the teams interested in Brock Osweiler was the Houston #Texans…
While that might seem a bit odd on the surface, the Texans are likely simply doing their due diligence in regards to a potential quarterback situation."
It’s also possible the Texans could be looking at Osweiler as a potential backup to a rookie arm, though that seems somewhat unlikely.
The most plausible scenario is the Texans simply exploring every possible avenue in regards to the upcoming draft and Osweiler’s name likely came up in the event Houston decides to pass on drafting a quarterback early.
No deal is imminent and it’s not known how serious the talks were.
