Texans Looking At Bortles, Manziel


Their need for a quarterback to replace Matt Schaub seems obvious, and according to Russ Lande of Sports on Earth, theyre initially leaning toward either Central Floridas Blake Bortles or Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel.

The report cites some potential unease about new coach Bill OBrien about all the off-field stuff that comes with Manziel, who would doubtless be a huge hit if he stayed in his home state.

Its hard to imagine the Texans have ruled out Teddy Bridgewater (or any other quarterbacks), as its so early in the evaluation period.

Plus, the best way to drum up interest is to create the impression youre looking at everyone, forcing someone who is desperate for a particular player to make a bold and costly move to get them.
