Texans bring back QB Brandon Weeden

The Texans resigned quarterback Brandon Weeden today.

Weeden, whose new contract is for two years and $4 million, gives the Texans four QBs along with starter Brock Osweiler, Brian Hoyer and Tom Savage.

Hoyer is expected to be traded when the Texans can get the best deal possible.

The Texans claimed Weeden on waivers from Dallas last season, and he helped them win two games, including their first win in 14 tries at Indianapolis. Weeden’s contributions helped the Texans finish 9-7 and win the AFC South.

Weeden threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns on 26-of-42 passing in two games, including one start at Tennessee. 

Weeden, who played at Oklahome State, was a first-round pick by Cleveland in 2012. He signed with Dallas last season, was 0-3 as a starter before being waived.
