It has been 11 months since the Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract. Osweiler’s first season in Houston can kindly be described as forgettable — he threw 15 touchdowns against 16 interceptions, completed just 59 percent of his throws, and was benched in December. According to Football Outsiders‘ metrics, Osweiler was the NFL‘s second-worst starting quarterback behind only Rams rookie Jared Goff.

So despite the franchise-quarterback contract, Osweiler isn’t guaranteed anything. In fact, owner Bob McNair said this week that competition for the job will include Tom Savage, who replaced Osweiler in the lineup in Weeks 16 and 17, and and perhaps a quarterback taken in the 2017 NFL Draft.
