12/01/14 - QB Tom Savage, a fourth-round pick, played for the first time. He was inserted in the last few minutes because of the lopsided score, but he didn't attempt a pass.
05/13/14 - 2014 NFL DRAFT BEST VALUE PICK: HOUSTON TEXANS: Round 4/135 -- Tom Savage, QB, 6-4, 235, Pittsburgh...The well-traveled Savage was outstanding as a true freshman at Rutgers and exceptional as a senior at Pitt. He went 1,024 days without playing because he missed three seasons while transferring. Good size, big arm, solid mechanics. He will be coached hard and won't be rushed into the lineup. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - Quarterback Ryan Mallett was the subject of rumors and reports of a potential trade on the afternoon prior to the first round of the NFL Draft. One report indicated that a deal was quite close to finalization to send the fourth-year backup to the Texans, where he'd be reunited with former Patriots offensive coordinator and now Houston head coach Bill O'Brien. Belichick was subsequently asked during his day-one draft press conference if he'd had any discussions about trading Mallett. "Why don't you talk to whoever wrote the story?" Belichick responded tersely, referencing the original report on CSNNE.com. "Since that person has all the answers, go talk to them." Numerous reports have since said that no trade discussions ever took place between the two team and Houston went on to draft quarterback Tom Savage on the third day of the draft. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 4/135 - Tom Savage, QB, 6-4, 235, Pittsburgh...The well-traveled Savage was outstanding as a true freshman at Rutgers and exceptional as a senior at Pitt. Went 1,024 days without playing because he missed three seasons while transferring. Good size, big arm, solid mechanics. Will be coached hard and won't be rushed into lineup. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 45/5. Tom Savage, QB, Pittsburgh, 6-4, 228, 4.97, 2...Traveling Tom transferred twice (from Rutgers, Arizona) and sat out two seasons (2011, 2012) in search of optimum situation, then struggled last season on a team that didn't give him a lot of protection. Savage has excellent size and an NFL-caliber arm. It is important to know what date of game is on films because as the 2013 season progressed so did his ability to understand how to accept the check-down instead of the sack. Note this: When Savage was a freshman at Rutgers in 2010, NFLDraftScout.com rated Savage as the No. 5 quarterback in the 2014 draft, right where he is now. Frankly: Big guy with a big arm who shows a grasp of the pro-style game and if he gets the time and tutoring necessary he might surprise those who lost track of him after two years out of the game. In weathering a rough start last season he showed maturity that was missing earlier career. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
