One of the biggest quarterback names in free agency this season is Denver Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler. The Broncos were hoping to hold on to him as their next franchise quarterback after Peyton Manning retired earlier this week.
It now looks like Osweiler is going to be taking the money and running out of the Mile High City.
According to NFL.com’s Rand Getlin, Brock Osweiler has agreed to a deal with the Houston Texans.

Osweiler had a good bit of success during the 2015 season, starting seven games for the Broncos and leading them to a 5-2 record in place of the injured Manning. He threw for just under 2,000 yards and ten touchdowns in those seven games.
The Texans were expected to draft a quarterback with either their first or second round pick, but now they seem to have found their guy going forward. The Broncos, on the other hand, now have a big question that must be answered ahead of the 2016 season.
