Tom Savage seems pleased that Brock Osweiler is no longer in Houston. Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Savage is, at least for now, the quarterback of the Houston Texans, and he may be taking a few shots at his predecessor as he settles into his new role.

Savage told reporters Monday that he was expecting a “fun and peaceful” quarterback room — which many took as a shot at Brock Osweiler.

There were widespread reports of arguments between Osweiler and coach Bill O’Brien last season, so this reads like a shot at the dysfunction that the former quarterback was a part of.

As for Savage, who had to read Tony Romo rumors all offseason, he’s not sweating any potential competition.

At this point, it’s very clear that Osweiler never came close to working out for Houston. Everyone seems rather pleased that he’s gone.
