That’s right. The Houston Texans hired the new signal caller for their team on nothing more than a very short resume. No interview, no meet and greet. Unless you count an alleged 10 second encounter in 2014.
Are the Texans that desperate? Is Osweiler just that good? Or is this a symptom of an underlying problem in the NFL?
Currently teams are not allowed to approach prospective players who are still under contract. Even if it’s public knowledge that their release is pending, or their contract is set to expire at the start of free agency.
While it’s hard to argue against a person fulfilling their side of the contract, this does seem to hamper both teams and players alike who are trying to land/extend a new contract.
Either way Houston has a new quarterback and Brock is set to cash in on a huge pay day.
