- John McClain of the Houston Chronicle recently reported that the Texans are “thinking about” keeping Schaub, so there appears to be at least a chance he could be back in Houston next year.
The Jets would, of course, have to part ways with Mark Sanchez for this be an option for them, but we have heard speculation that the Raiders could have interest in Schaub.
Schaub, 32, still has three years remaining on his five-year, $66.15 million contract. The Texans owe him a base salary of $10 million to go along with $1 million in per-game roster bonuses next season.
It’s been widely assumed that the Texans would try to get out from underneath Schaub’s $14.125 million cap figure and take the savings, even though they would free up just $3.625 million by releasing him, according to OverTheCap.com.
Last year, Schaub appeared in 10 games for the Texans last season and threw for 2,310 yards to go along with 10 touchdowns and 14 interception
