HOUSTON (AP) -- Record-setting Houston quarterback Case Keenum says he plans to sign with the Texans.
The 6-foot Keenum went undrafted despite setting Football Bowl Subdivision career records for total offense, yards passing and touchdown passes in 2011. Donning a Texans T-shirt and baseball cap on Monday, Keenum talked about his new team on the Houston campus.
Keenum says his optimism faded as the final day of the draft unfolded, and he wasn't chosen. But he felt a lot better when he heard from Houston quarterback Matt Schaub on Saturday night, after the Texans had decided to pick him up.
The Texans were down to third-string quarterback T.J. Yates by the end of last season. They still finished 10-6, won their division and earned their first playoff berth.
