Ryan Fitzpatrick named Houston Texans starting quarterback

Houston Texans coach Bill O'Briend announces that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback next season.

Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien has announced that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the franchise's starting quarterback in the upcoming season.

The Texans signed Fitzpatrick in free agency shortly before trading Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders, and O'Brien felt that it was beneficial to the entire team to know now who the starting quarterback would be.

"He earned it. He earned it with his preparation. He earned it with his accuracy," O'Brien said, ESPN reports.

Fitzpatrick threw for 2,454 yards and 14 touchdowns last season for the Tennessee Titans, but has insisted that Houston is where he wants to be.
