Description: Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official website believes quarterback Ryan Mallett (pectoral injury, free agent) will be the team's Opening Day starter.
Insight: It's February so a lot can happen between now an September, including a draft and a free agent signing period, but the Texans QB position comes with a couple of solid receivers and a great running back.

Description: According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, who is usually right on top of things, Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett suffered a pectoral injury that will end his season.
Insight: Mallett was in his second start for Houston after taking over for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick or possibly fourth-round selection Tom Savage will have to take over the controls in Week 13.

Description: Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett was terrible in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Insight: He was 21-of-45 for 189 yards and an interception. Mallett is no more than a borderline QB2.

Description: Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett played very well in his first NFL start.
Insight: Mallett was not afraid to throw the ball downfield, which was likely why coach Bill O'Brien made a change under center because Ryan Fitzpatrick did not or was not able to take deep shots. Mallett was 20-for-30 with 211 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
11/5/2014 1:01:00 PM
Description: Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett was named the starter for Week 11 against the Browns.
Insight: Houston is on a bye this week, but once they come out out of it, Mallett will be under center. Coach Bill O'Brien praised his grasp of the offense, and now Mallett will have a nice opportunity to produce on a solid football team.

Description: If the Patriots were showcasing quarterback Ryan Mallett for a trade he didn't put his best foot forward throwing for just 55 yards on 5-for-12 passing.
Insight: Third-string Jimmy Garoppolo looked better than Mallett, though admittedly he was playing against second- and third-stringers on the Washington defense.

Insight: Instead, Houston took a flyer on Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage in the fourth round of last week's draft. Until the Pats can find a willing trade partner, Mallett will continue to backup future Hall of Famer Tom Brady.

Description: The Texans appear to be working on a deal to acquire Patriots quarterback Ryan Mallett. SOURCE: Tom Curran, Comcast Sportsnet New England
Insight: If true, the Texans would almost certainly take South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 pick in the draft. Mallett, who has thrown just four passes in his NFL career, would likely be Houston's Week 1 starter ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum.

Description: John McClain of the Houston Chronicle says the Texans will not be making a trade for Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.
Insight: A few days ago, it sounded like Houston was considering taking South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 pick and then acquiring a quarterback via trade. Now, it sounds like they'll stick to the script and take a QB with the first pick. Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles are all in play at No. 1.

Description: ESPN's Ben Goessling wouldn't be surprised if the Vikings at least "kicked the tires" on Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.
Insight: Mallett has only completed one pass in his NFL career but that's because he's had a Hall of Famer playing in front of him in Tom Brady. Minnesota's QB situation is dicey at best with Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder under center and Mallett might be able to provide the Vikings with some much-needed stability. Mallett will be a free agent after next season so the Patriots would be wise to trade him sooner rather than later.
8/10/2013 2:46:00 PM
Description: New England backup quarterback Ryan Mallett suffered a head injury in the exhibition game against Philadelphia, but it is not a concussion and he did not take any concussion tests.
Insight: Mallett's fantasy value is as a handcuff to Tom Brady only.

Description: The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns are no longer interested in acquiring New England quarterback Ryan Mallett.
Insight: Apparently the Patriots' asking price for Mallett was too high (New England wants a second-rounder as compensation). Some people are saying that Mallett is better than any quarterback in this year's draft. Bill Belichick and company should get plenty more phone calls about Mallett before Roger Goodell takes the podium tonight in New York.
1/20/2013 4:46:00 PM
Description: Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Browns could be interested in acquiring quarterback Ryan Mallett from the Patriots.
Insight: Cleveland's vice president of player personnel Mike Lombardi is apparently very high on Mallett despite the fact that he's only completed one pass in the NFL. If Mallett came to the Browns, he'd have to battle Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy for the starting job.

Description: Your fantasy handcuff for star quarterback Tom Brady is no longer Brian Hoyer, it's Ryan Mallett. Hoyer was cut by the Patriots on Friday
Insight: Mallett, a third round choice in 2011, was the better of the two throwers in preseason. The former Arkansas Razorback was 33-of-67 for 300 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT. Hoyer was 22-of-47 for 196 yards 1 TD, 1 INT.
