HOUSTON (AP) Coach Bill O'Brien has a big decision to make as he enters his second year with the Houston Texans. He'll have to choose Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett as his starting quarterback.
The Texans improved seven games last season to finish 9-7, but missed the postseason again in large part after using four players at quarterback because of injuries and inconsistent play.
Mallett finally got a chance to start in 2014 after toiling behind Tom Brady in New England for three years. But his opportunity was short-lived because of season-ending surgery on a torn pectoral muscle after just two games. He re-signed with the Texans in the offseason
