Houston Texans Sign Former Bills Quarterback

No, it's not the free-agent quarterback signing by the Houston Texans that was anticipated.

The Houston Texans have signed journeyman quarterback Case Keenum to a two-year, $6.25 million contract, as reported by Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston.

The 35-year-old, who played his college ball at Houston, is returning to the team where he started his NFL career in 2013.

Keenum has played 10 seasons in the league, accumulating 14,884 passing yards, 78 passing touchdowns, and 48 interceptions.

He is most fondly remembered for his 2017 run with the Minnesota Vikings, where he went 11-3 while throwing for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions before losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Round.

With the Texans holding the No. 2 overall pick in next month's draft, it is widely expected that they will select a quarterback. 

Keenum will likely serve as a bridge or backup for the incoming rookie, while also competing with Davis Mills, who remains on the roster.

As a seasoned veteran, Keenum brings experience and stability to the Texans as they look to rebuild and develop their future franchise quarterback.
