Texans Fans Can Now Donate to GoFundMe to Buy Out Brock Osweiler’s Contract
Disappointed with Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler? Think maybe he's overpaid and undertalented? Well, pony up a little cash and maybe you can get rid of him!
An enterprising Houston soul known as Ali A-g has set up a GoFundMe page where like-minded fans can work to buy out Osweiler's four-year, $72 million contract (only $37 million over the first two years are guaranteed). As of this writing, only about $160 of that full amount has been raised, but you know, these things start small, right?
I am a die hard Texans fan and we need to get rid of Brock Osweiler or we're not going anywhere. He is a waste of 72 million and for a dollar a day we can get him out and make Deandre Hopkins happy. -- Ali A-g
Instead of spending $37 million on Brock Osweiler, the Texans could have given each of their 68,000 season-ticket holders a cash gift of $544. Or even better, they could have given all of Houston's 2.3 million residents $16 apiece. Where's our money, Bob McNair?
To be fair, that was only one of 19 different ideas of how the Texans could have better spent $72 million. They got imaginative.
Osweiler only put up 131 passing yards against his former team, the Broncos, last week -- his worst performance with the Texas so far.
