Fitzpatrick named starter by Texans

Former Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will get yet another chance to be a starter in the league. Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien announced on Tuesday afternoon that Fitzpatrick will head into the regular season as the starting quarterback.

The former Bills player might just get a chance for revenge, too, when Houston welcomes in Buffalo for their Week Four tilt in the upcoming season. In his time with the Bills, Fitzpatrick had a record of 20-33 as their starter.

After having been released by Buffalo ahead of the 2013 NFL Draft, the quarterback was then scooped up by the Tennessee Titans. He was brought in to be the backup for young starter Jake Locker, but when the former first-round pick got injured Fitzpatrick made nine starts throughout 2013.

The Titans switched up their coaching staff and Fitzpatrick was released one year into the two-year deal he signed. He signed a two-year deal with the Texans this offseason, and then beat out Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage to be the starter.
