Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

QB Schaub staying in Houston

The SportsXchange

Suitors lining up for a chance to sign Matt Schaub will be left waiting for the first shoe to drop for some time. The Houston Texans plan to hold onto the quarterback, likely to gauge trade interest from quarterback-needy teams who still view him as a starter.

Schaub lost his starting spot with the Texans in the midst of a 14-game losing streak that led to Houston earning the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. It was widely presumed he would be cut before the start of free agency, but with no deadlines for bonuses in his contract structure ahead, Schaub isn't going anywhere in the immediate term.

That could all change if the Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders or another team with a need at the position came knocking and offered general manager Rick Smith a draft pick in exchange for Schaub.

He turns 33 in June and has 80 career regular-season starts. After throwing 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season, Schaub was benched in favor of undrafted quarterback Case Keenum.

New head coach Bill O'Brien said at the scouting combine he was still evaluating his roster.
