Coach confirms: Texans eyeing Colin Kaepernick but haven't contacted the QB

That doesn't mean the Texans are going to sign him - or even invite him in for a tryout - but it does mean that the Texans are well aware of the fact that they now have a dire situation at quarterback. "Everybody gets discussed. Is that a problem?" Instead of making their football team better, the Texans seem doomed to unimaginably bad quarterback play.

In their 20-14 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Savage completed 19-of-44 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown as the Texans dropped to 3-5.

The Texans will start Tom Savage, who was benched in the opener, on Sunday against the Colts.

The 12th overall pick in this year's draft was named AFC offensive player of the month after throwing for 1,171 yards with 16 touchdowns and running for 145 yards and another score.

O'Brien talked around them mostly, saying he and General Manager Rick Smith talk about everybody.

"I've studied him since college and in professional football".

"I agree with you", Harrison added. Because Houston is now operating with Tom Savage at quarterback and brought in two backup gunslingers who weren't good enough to be on any other roster in the league this season.

"Sign Colin Kaepernick", Dungy said.

Harrison also chimed in during the Kaepernick discussion and explained why it was important for the Texans to sign the former 49ers quarterback. When you have a mobile quarterback, your offense looks different.

Comment below and tell us whether you think the Texans will sign Kaepernick. The two-time Super Bowl winning safety said that he'd lose all faith in his coaching staff if they didn't try to upgrade the team's quarterback position. "I coach the football team". Spoke to him. I've known him for a long time.

Also worth mentioning that, given Deshaun Watson's style, Colin Kaepernick would be a presumed flawless fit for Houston's offense. Tom Savage remains the Texans' starter, with T.J. Yates and Matt McGloin competing for the No. 2 spot.
