Houston Texans Offseason 2012: Gary Kubiak Is High On Case Keenum

When Case Keenum signed with the Houston Texans, many people believed it was the team's way of doing a favor for the local player. But recent comments from Gary Kubiak make it seem like the organization might give Keenum a shot down the road.

"He’s well on his way to learning what he’s doing, so I’m very pleased. I’m excited to work with him. I think he’s got a future. We just got to take it a day at a time."

The knock on Keenum has been that his experience in college came out of the shotgun, and he's a little too small to play quarterback (he stands at 6-0 5/8). Kubiak, though, compares him to another smaller quarterback.

"You learn to throw through windows. I saw one of the greatest small quarterbacks in (Doug) Flutie do it for years."

Keenum has been able to get a lot of reps in OTAs because of Matt Schaub's injury.
