Here's why Houston Texans QB situation just got exponentially more complicated

Former Raiders QB Derek Carr is officially a free agent after being released from the team this week. This move gives Carr plenty of time to survey the QB-needy teams and find an ideal landing spot. The timing of this move allows Derek a month head start to meet with teams before free agency begins.

With that in mind, should the Texans consider adding Derek Carr? He's rumored to be looking for around $30 million per season, and he wouldn't cost as much as Aaron Rodgers. On the other hand, Colts owner Jim Irsay mentioned Bryce Young being a player he likes. If the Texans can't land Young at No. 2, should the Texans draft defense and then look for their QB at No. 12 overall?

Plus, draft expert Lance Zierlein is hearing some “whispers” about Ohio State QB CJ Stroud and how the staff feels about him.

Be sure to check out the video as the guys lay out all the possible scenarios.
