When the Houston Texans signed quarterback Brock Osweiler away from the Denver Broncos in the 2016 NFL offseason, they thought they were getting their franchise quarterback of the future. One year later and the Texans traded Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns. When talking about his former quarterback, Texans owner Bob Mcnair made some insulting comments about Brock as he leaves Houston.

Bob McNair's statements about Brock Osweiler

It almost seems like Bob McNair could just call the signing of Brock Osweiler a failed experiment and move on. However, in an interview with the Houston Chronicle, McNair instead decided to thrown Osweiler under the bus.

McNair said that he was shocked that Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith was able to find anyone to trade for Osweiler. As if his shock that any team would want Brock wasn't bad enough, he tried to explain what the Texans signed him at all, saying that the team didn't know Osweiler enough and that head coach Bill O'Brien didn't have a chance to get to know him. He said because they didn't know him that well, they signed him, a move they now regret. By the end of his interview, it seems that Bob McNair was very disappointed in Brock Osweiler and would never have signed him if he had gotten to know him beforehand.

The future of Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans

The future of both Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans are both a mystery.

When it comes to Brock. while Bob McNair doesn't feel he is worth a spot on an NFL team, the Cleveland Browns have indicated that they might keep him after teasing they would release him quickly after the trade. That means that Osweiler might get another chance to start for an NFL team in 2017. As for the Houston Texans, the thought is that they traded Osweiler away because they wanted to clear his $72 million salary from their books so they can possibly afford to sign Tony Romo when the Dallas Cowboys finally decide to release him.

If that is what ends up happening in Houston, it will be an immediate upgrade for the Texans.
