The Texans, knowing they’d need quarterbacks in the wake of Deshaun Watson’s trade request, wanted Kellen Mond in the NFL Draft but didn’t get him.

Those damned Minnesota Vikings.

If it weren’t for Minnesota, Houston Texans fans might be talking about how former Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond could potentially become the next centerpiece around which general manager Nick Caserio could build.

And, hopefully, someone who’d make the likely departure of franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson a bit more digestible.
