HOUSTON — The Houston Texans weren’t letting Brock Osweiler escape.
Sure, the Denver Broncos were eager to hold onto the free agent quarterback with Peyton Manning now in retirement. So the Texans had to be super aggressive to get Osweiler.
“As with anything, if there’s more than one person that wants it, it’s probably going to cost you more,” Texans owner Bob McNair said Thursday. “They wanted him ... the price kept going up and I think they finally figured out we weren’t going away. We were prepared to do whatever it took to get the deal consummated.”
