Texans owner McNair: Finding franchise QB top priority
Houston Texans owner Bob McNair agrees with the idea the team needs to acquire a franchise quarterback during the offseason.
Just how much that quarterback is going to cost, remains a question.
McNair on Tuesday reaffirmed his position that the team wants to identify their quarterback of the future in the coming months, but said certain considerations must be taken into account.
"The question is what’s available, and what’s the price?" McNair said. "How many draft picks might you have to give up? You can’t undermine the rest of your team while you’re trying to get a quarterback.
“This isn’t a department store where they have them on the shelf, and you just pick one up. It’s a question of who’s available. We’re working on that. We think there are some good prospects out there.”
The Texans started four different quarterbacks in 2015 en route to winning the AFC South. Brian Hoyer started 11 regular season games, before turning in the worst performance of his career in the team's 30-0 playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hoyer threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in the defeat.
