Keenum was initially tendered by the Texans as an exclusive-rights player, reports the Houston Chronicle.
[daily_cut.nfl]Keenum, 27, had two stints with the Texans. The most recent began last December, when the Texans signed him off the Rams' practice squad after starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick broke his leg. Keenum started two games, completing 45 percent of his passes for 435 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
Keenum's first stint with Texans came after he went undrafted in 2012 and signed with Houston. He spent the 2012 season on the practice squad before joining the Texans' active roster in 2013, when he started eight games.
Last August, the Texans waived Keenum to clear space for quarterback Ryan Mallett. The St. Louis Rams claimed Keenum off waivers, but he was re-signed to the practice squad in October without appearing in any regular-season games.
