According to the Houston Chronicle, Texans’ Quarterback Matt Schaub has said that his contract situation will not be a problem for his commitment to the team. Schaub signed a 6 year $48 million deal with Houston in 2007, and is set to be an Unrestricted Free Agent in 2013.
The Texans have a strict policy of not negotiating with players during the regular season. Schaub has no issues with that. “When we look up at the end of the year, I think we’ll like what we see, and things will handle themselves as we go. Every year is a pivotal year. You always want to do your best. I’m trying to be the best quarterback I can be for this team.”
Schaub missed the last 6 games of last season, as well as the Texans’ 2 games in the playoffs because of a Lisfranc joint injury. He says that he needs to get back into the groove of things. Expectations are as high as ever.
