- Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer previously reported that the Browns signing veteran QB Matt Schaub to a contract this offseason is a “serious possibility.”
- Cabot adds that Schaub would have to compete with Brian Hoyer for the starting job.
The Jets have come up as a potential landing spot for Schaub in the event that he’s released, but it looks like there wasn’t a lot of substance behind the idea.
The Browns and Raiders continue to be two teams mentioned in connection to 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
