NFL free agency is officially underway.
Beginning on Monday, NFL clubs were allowed to contact and enter contract negotiations with the certified agents of players who will become unrestricted free agents. On Wednesday March 9th at 4 p.m. ET new contracts can be signed and executed.
One such free agent that is entering the market is Denver Broncos backup quarterback Brock Osweiler.
Osweiler is a four year veteran that got his first true playing time this season when starter Peyton Manning was injured.
Osweiler went 5-2 as a starter throwing 11 touchdowns to six interceptions and showed that he could be a future starter in the league.
There are many teams that wil be interested in attaining the services of a young talented quarterback like Osweiler.
While the Broncos will try to re-sign him, and see if he can keep them in contention for another Super Bowl title, there are a number of suitors interested in wresting him from the Mile High City.
One such team is the Houston Texans.
Last season the Texans finished 9-7 and made it into the AFC Wild Card game, only to be completely dismantled by the Kansas City Chiefs 30-0 in the Wild Card playoff game.
On Tuesday morning Houston reached out to Osweiler via text message to gauge his interest in joining them.
The Daly Dose was able to get a copy of some of those texts. So far it doesn’t look so good for the Texans.
