Texans confirm Taylor as starting QB; Watson to sit … No great surprise here as Houston confirmed this morning that veteran Tyrod Taylor will be the team’s starting QB when the Texans open the season this coming weekend against Jacksonville, while rookie Davis Mills, a second-round pick this past spring, will be the back-up. That leaves embattled QB DeShaun on the bench waiting for a trade. Supposedly, Miami is very interested, but is unwilling to cough up the three first and two second round picks the Texans are reportedly holding out for in a trade. So it may come down to a staring contest to see who blinks first with neither team, at least for the moment, under any great pressure to compromise on their offers. Stay tuned!
