The Houston Texans are set to decide whether Ryan Mallett or Brian Hoyer will be their starting quarterback this season, but according to a report, the team held talks this offseason that would have brought a future Hall of Famer to town in a blockbuster trade.
According to Denver-based radio host Benjamin Albright, the Denver Broncos attempted to deal Peyton Manning to the Texans during the offseason. Albright said some members of the Denver organization were ready to move on from the 39-year-old Manning and wanted to turn the team over to fourth-year QB Brock Osweiler in 2015.
