Top five free-agent quarterbacks

It is very difficult to find a capable quarterback in free agency. Generally speaking, the National Football League is a place where good signal-callers get snatched up via the draft and occasionally trade. Men who hit the open market are either washed up or not talented enough in most cases, with the Peyton Manning saga of 2012 being a massive outlier. This year, we see another...

With Mallett done for the year what should the Texans do?

Ryan Mallett is for sure ruled out for the remainder of the year with a torn pectoral muscle. The Texans just benched Ryan Fitzpatrick and going back to him now would look foolish, so what should the Texans do?
