FF Today's Take:The Texans released quarterback Case Keenum after the acquisition. Mallet was taken in the third-round of the 2011 draft by the Patriots but has thrown less than 10 passes in the regular season. Malett and Tom Savage will compete for the backup quarterback job behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.
