Texans free agent QB Brandon Weeden said he’d “absolutely” consider re-signing and returning to Houston.
“Absolutely,” Weeden said when asked if he’d like to be back in Houston, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “It’s crazy. It’s been four years and I’m already a free agent. I’ll weigh my options and go from there.
“I got an opportunity to come down here and it has been a good time. We won a lot of games while I was here and it’s a great locker room, great town, everything. It was all a very good experience.”
Unless they cut Hoyer, it’s difficult to see them bring Weeden back for another season.
Weeden, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2012. He spent two years in Cleveland before he was cut in March of 2014 and later signed by the Cowboys. Dallas elected to waive Weeden mid-season, but he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans after they cut Ryan Mallett.
He played out the final year of his two-year, $1.23 million rookie contract and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.
In 2015, Weeden threw for 1,044 yards while completing 69.3 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and two interceptions over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 21 quarterback out of 35 qualifying players.
