The Houston Texans are in need of a quarterback, just ask the frustrated figure of Andre Johnson, and there have been rumors linking the franchise with a move in recent weeks.

Should they choose to add in that area in coming weeks, that quarterback will not be New England Patriots back up Ryan Mallett however, according to longtime Texan's beat write John McClain.

The Houston Chronicle journalist believes that there is no chance Mallett ends up in Houston with the mooted trade dead in the water.

This comes after earlier reports from the likes of Ian Rapoport had stated earlier in the week that there remained discussions between the Texans and Patriots for the services of Mallett.

At present the Texans have limited options at QB with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick topping the list currently. They acquired rookie Tom Savage in the draft but he is unlikely to start immediately, leaving the franchise likely to continue their search now that the Mallett deal is off the table.

New Texans head coach, Bill O'Brien, was thought to be keen on bringing in Mallett, one of his former Arkansas players, to his new team but clearly negotiations have hit a stumbling point from which there looks little possibility of progress.
