The Texans won the AFC South last season, but that accomplishment was largely due to their defense. Osweiler, 26, had a mediocre season and did not give Houston owner Bob McNair a good return on his investment.

Osweiler threw a franchise-record 16 interceptions, was benched in Week 15 and reportedly had a locker room confrontation with coach Bill O’Brien in Week 17. The big signing, and McNair’s investment, turned into a total bust, and Osweiler was jettisoned out of Houston last week in a trade with Cleveland.
To add insult to injury, the Texans so wanted to rid themselves of Osweiler and his $16 million guaranteed salary for 2017 that they actually gave Cleveland a second-round pick in the deal. And the street talk is that the lowly Browns will cut Osweiler after it becomes clear they can’t trade him.
Talk about a short trip from the penthouse to the outhouse.

The No. 67 pick in this draft originally belonged to the Cubs, but it was given to the Nationals as compensation for Chicago signing Alfonso Soriano. That worked well for the Nats, eh? Zimmermann was a rock in Washington’s lineup for five years (average of 194 innings, 3.14 ERA) before he left to sign with the Tigers as a free agent after the 2015 season.
Youngsters know Haren as King of Twitter (at least, they should), but before he retired Haren was one of baseball’s most reliable starting pitchers. The right-hander strung together 11 consecutive seasons of at least 30 starts and finished with 153 wins and a 3.75 ERA.
