A new Texans coach said on Wednesday that he and the team are “looking at” a new contract for backup quarterback Tom Savage.
Texans general manager Rick Smith made the comments during a news conference, and Savage’s agent said he is “looking into it.”
“Tom’s a good person,” Smith said.
“We’re looking at a contract that we can get a good deal on.”
Smith said he expects Savage to get a contract similar to that of former Bills backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, but he said he didn’t want to give away too much.
“I think you’re looking for a contract with a lot of different factors that you’re not able to really get a hold of,” Smith told reporters.
“That’s why we’re looking into a lot more than just Tom.”
In 2016, Savage completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 3,074 yards, 17 touchdowns and six interceptions.
