2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Savage enters his third NFL season after missing all of 2015 with a shoulder injury. When he was drafted in 2014 (fourth round), Savage was viewed as a developmental project that could become the team's number one at some point, but he's had little game experience since. Now, with Brock Osweiler signed to a lucrative four-year deal in the offseason, the Pitt grad is looking to elevate to the team's backup, competing with Brandon Weeden. The Texans harbor postseason aspirations in 2016 and will want an experienced hand backing up Osweiler -- even if that hand is attached to the arm of Weeden, whose career TD-to-interception ratio is 31:30 -- so Savage is likely looking at a third-string role.

2015

In lien to work as the Texans' No, 3 QB when he returns from a shoulder injury.

2014

The Texans selected Savage in the 4th round of the draft, but just barely before the 5th round at 135th overall. He's not an overly impressive quarterback prospect, as his arm strength is his only constant. Questionable reads, inconsistent accuracy and poor pocket presence made Savage the underdog in the competition with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum. Keenum was eventually released when the Texans added Ryan Mallett via trade from New England. Mallett is the presumed backup to Fitzpatrick while the team grooms Savage as the future at the position.
