QB Rosenfels on the Trading Block?


The QB spot in Houston appears to be in a flux, as the team is set to sign Quinn Gray to be their backup, which could mean that last seasons back up and sometime starter Sage Rosenfels could find himself on the trading block. Reports says that Rosenfels could garner the team as high as a fourth-round draft pick, despite the Texans thinking they could get a second or third round pick for him. Last season he was a valuable member of the Texans, throwing for 1684 yards and 15 touchdowns while playing in 9 games. He had a QB rating of 84.8.

The team is set to wrap up a deal with Gray today, and he will be the primary backup to Matt Schaub, who should be 100 percent after being hurt during parts of last season. Rosenfels is a six-year vet, playing for the Dolphins for the first four years of his career before joining the Texans in 2006. He has played in a career 26 games, with a QB rating of 82 while throwing 24 touchdowns and 19 picks. There will be plenty of teams looking for a backup like Rosenfels should be truly become available.

    Smithiak wants 3 QB depth, and if the Texans get rid of Sage they better know for sure that Schaub isn’t going to get hurt like he always does.

    Gray’s small, 1-yr deal doesn’t warrant trading away Sage. Sage still has 2 yrs and is a suitable backup in Kubiak’s system. Plus, getting rid of him will cost any team a 2nd or 3rd&4th rounder in April’s Draft for sure.

    As a Texans fan, I still want Sage playing for us because he can make most of the throws and knows the system. Getting rid of him is getting rid of at least 4 wins out of 5 games if Schaub goes down (ie last season w/ only loss coming to Colts).

    agreed. rosenfels is a valuable backup. i think he can definitely throw the football just as good as schaub, and he already knows the system better. he led the texans to some major wins and made some big plays last year. he was glorious in that close game against the titans and he tore up jacksonville. he has definitely proven his worth with the organization. if the texans can get a 2nd or high 3rd round pick for him, then i would agree to trade him. but anything lower than that would not be worth it; he’s a valuable backup because he can virtually replace schaub. besides his picks last year, he played well. and is gray that good? he destroyed our secondary in last year’s game but can he replace rosenfels as the backup spot? we know schaub is going to get injured at some point in time this season.

    I must admit I just started watching the Texans last year. I was really impressed with Rosennfels and the team. I don’t believe Gray is anywhere near the talent that Rosenfels is. I watched both teams because of my fantasy team. Your really taking a chance on Gray.
