Houston Texans would be crazy not to let go of former starting quarterback Matt Schaub, according to Houston Chronicle writer John McClain. 

Texans talk these days seems to consist of discussions about the prospect of Johnny Manziel playing for the AFC South team.

However, in an interview, McClain explained that it's not just the first round draft pick that should be getting the franchise thinking.

He believes the Texans need a new running back and a new back-up quarterback, with Schaub likely to depart soon.

McClain went even further and stated that the Texans would be 'crazy' to keep Schaub on board for the 2014 NFL season.  

"They need to get a quarterback, but they are going to need to get a back up QB," explained McClain.  

"They are going to need to get a veteran QB because I don't think Matt Schaub will be back. 

"If they keep him the fans and the media will go crazy. Matt will be hot property on the open market.

"We are not exactly sure what Bill O'Brien is going to do, but he's going to have to get running-back and a back-up quarterback for sure."

Schaub has had some solid season at the Texans with a passing rating of over 90 for five seasons. 

However, last season was a poor one for the signal caller. as he threw 14 interceptions and only 10 touchdowns to end the season with a QB rating of 73.0
