QB Fitzpatrick Visiting With Houston


Mark Berman of FOX 26 reports that Ryan Fitzpatrick is visiting the Texans on Thursday. Fitzpatrick was released by the Titans after they signed Charlie Whitehurst and his arrival in Houston would give the Texans a veteran quarterback with starting experience to use as a potential backup or placeholder for a rookie drafted in May.

Fitzpatrick started nine games for the Texans last year in place of an injured Jake Locker and completed 62 percent of his passes while throwing 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He was in the running for a job with the Bengals before Cincinnati opted to sign Jason Campbell.
