Tom Savage’s agent speaks out about his benching

The Houston Texans decided to insert Deshaun Watson into the starting lineup after halftime of Week 1, but the fact that he didn't start the game is still a questionable decision.

The Texans haven’t officially announced that Deshaun Watson will start Thursday night’s game at Cincinnati. But it’s the worst-kept secret in football, especially when the agent representing the quarterback who was benched goes public to take issue with the benching.

In an interview with the newly-resurrected PFT Live afternoon podcast (better title pending, or worse), Neil Schwartz addresses his concerns regarding the decision to put Tom Savage on the sidelines in both the second half of the Week One loss to the Jaguars and, as of now, beyond.

The interview will be posted soon as part of a stand-alone, Wednesday afternoon PFT Live podcast. To hear it, head to Apple Podcasts, audioBoom, and wherever else podcasts are available. To hear it ASAFP, subscribe to the podcast RFN.
