Houston Texans want Ryan Mallett back bad

mallettYesterday, Texans general manager Rick Smith and coach Bill O’Brien made clear their hope that Ryan Mallett returns to the Texans next season. The buzz in Indianapolis is the Texans could reach a deal with Mallett well before teams can start having conversations with other teams’ free agents on March 7,according to ESPN.

The only problem is how crappy this quarterback class is, including free agency. Outside of Mallett, this year’s free-agent quarterback group is headlined by guys like Philadelphia’s Mark Sanchez, Cleveland’s Brian Hoyer, Tennessee’s Jake Locker, Minnesota’s Christian Ponder and Indianapolis’s Matt Hasselbeck. That’s a group with much more experience than Mallett, but also many more failures.

The Texans might need to overpay, but if they don’t someone else likely will.
