    If I had to guess, I'd say he ends up in Denver.

    Who else needs a QB besides Denver and NYJ? SF?

    Decent enough stop gap and get the Texans to the playoffs. He should be a pretty good backup for some team.

    Really it was more that TJ Yates and Brandon Weeden got the Texans to the playoffs, they won the tough games that would have otherwise been lost if Hoyer started them and those games were the difference between the playoffs and no playoffs.

    A lot better than Mallet, but that's not saying much.

    Mallet got a pick because Bill O'Brien and Rick Smith traded for him

    Mallett is going to find this hilarious as soon as he wakes up.

    I thought the Texans releases Mallet. Replace his name with TJ Yates. He got traded for Akeem Dent.
