McCarron signed a one-year deal with the Texans last offseason, and he earned his first start since 2015 during Houston’s regular-season finale. In that contest, the 29-year-old completed 21 of his 36 pass attempts for 225 yards and one interception. He also had a rushing touchdown.
The former fifth-rounder out of Alabama has made 15 appearances during his career. He earned three starts with the Bengals back in 2015, throwing six touchdowns against only two interceptions. He also started for Cincy in the playoffs that year, tossing a touchdown in the Bengals loss to the Steelers.
In Houston, he’ll continue serving as the backup to Deshaun Watson.
