    Wasn't this a story a while ago too? VY's career is pretty much done and he's grasping at straws.

    He's the equivalent to Tebow with regard to the Texans; he'd be a huge distraction at QB2.

    He and the Orangebloods would expect him to be anointed Starter for Life the second he hit Kirby, when the reality is I am not sure he would be able to beat out T.J for the number 2 job.

    He might actually be able to help in some red-zone wildcatish thing, but I think Kubiak has shown no desire to even try something like that.

    It comes down to do you think Vince can be humble and prepare himself every week in case he is needed with his still rabid fans blowing up talk radio in his hometown clamoring for him to start. Or will he act like a petulant 11 year old and mess up our excellent locker room? I know what history seems to indicate will happen.

    If he wants to be a third string and he accepts the minimum then sure.

    I've always maintained that there is no way in hell that VY Nation would accept him being anything less than a starter in his own hometown. Most that maintain they will are completely disingenuous IMO.

    As a VY and Texans fan, I would not want him on the Texans, I like Schaub and TJ Yates enough, and this team is good enough without the distraction of Mr. Young.

    He's not stupid, he knows his career is shot and the Texans might be tempted to bing him in just to appease a few fans.

    It sucks that he said one of the main reasons he decided to enter the draft in 2006 was because we had the number 1 pick and wanted to play in Houston. Nice how that turned out for him. I'm glad with who we have and I'm more than comfortable enough with Yates at number 2.

    he sure was a big distraction last year with the eagles, wasn't he?

    vy nuts realize now that schaub is better than him. what some people don't understand is how putrid t.j. yates is. i'd sign vy on the cheap to back up schaub in a heartbeat.

    If we get him for cheap then why not. Cant be any worst than Leinart. Have him battle with yates for the backup spot.

    I doubt he could get much money. He already made a lot from his first contract.
