Houston Texans quarterback, Matt Schaub is sure to be made to feel wanted by several NFL teams this summer but the Texans may not be one of those teams.
The Texans are widely expected to cut Schaub after a disappointing season in which the veteran threw 14 interceptions and just 10 touchdowns.
Reports that have surfaced recently suggest that both the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders would be interested in the signal-caller should he be cut by Houston tomorrow.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweeted: "If Jets release Mark Sanchez, their QB list will include Josh McCown, Michael Vick… & Matt Schaub if he’s released. They’re high on Schaub"
Rapoport had earlier mentioned that the Raiders and Cleveland Browns would be interested in the 11th year veteran.
The Houston Texans have the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft and are widely expected to use that pick to bring in a young franchise quarterback and improve their cap situation by cutting Schaub.
The New York Jets and Oakland Raiders both used fairly inexperienced quarterbacks last season and may feel that bringing in the experienced Schaub, even as a back-up would be a wise move.
However Schaub is expected to be among the most sought after quarterback free agents and could fetch a premium at the most important position in football.
