Texans quarterback Tom Savage is eager to compete for the starting job next season

Quarterback Tom Savage spent his second season on injured reserve. Next season, he wants to win the starting job.

Savage, who recovered from his shoulder injury midway through the season, knows the team’s top priority during the offseason is to find a franchise quarterback.

“Yeah, they can draft 12 quarterbacks (but), I’m going to be ready to go,” he said Sunday. “I’m excited about competing, and that still falls under the category of controlling what I can control.”

Savage watched the Texans play five quarterbacks and not four after playing four and starting three in Bill O’Brien’s first season.

“I’m definitely excited,” he said. “It’s a bitter-sweet thing that it ended, but now I’m ready to go.

“It was tough (watching),” he said about what he learned. “I had a (game) plan for each week. It was beneficial to kind of take a step back and get an outside view of what’s going on.”

Savage has one priority before he resumes his preparation for next season.

“I have to take my wife on a honeymoon so she doesn’t divorce me six months after our wedding,” he said.
