The Footballguys staff was asked to mention their most significant veteran quarterback who changed teams over the offseason. Most significant can have a lot of meaning, so - in this case - it means we just asked our guys to pick the quarterback they most wanted to write about. Here are the results.

Brock Osweiler, Houston
Alexander: Osweiler didn't show much in seven starts with the Broncos last season to suggest he'll be more than a low-end QB2 for the Texans, but his competition in this category -- Mark Sanchez and Robert Griffin III -- makes him the answer by default. Even in the likely scenario Osweiler is not worth the $37 million guaranteed he got from Houston, there are reasons to believe he'll have some useful weeks. The move gives Osweiler six games against AFC South opponents. Besides the Texans, no team in the division allowed less than 25.5 points per game in 2015. DeAndre Hopkins has been making bad quarterbacks look good his entire career, while Lamar Miller and Will Fuller round out a dangerous supporting cast. The fast pace of Bill O'Brien's offense should only help Osweiler's counting stats. In O'Brien's two years as head coach, the Texans ranked ninth and first respectively in total offensive snaps. You can certainly do better than Osweiler as your QB2, but he'll at least make an adequate streamer or bye-week fill-in when the matchup is agreeable.
