There had been speculation that Kansas State standout quarterback Collin Klein would have to switch positions in order to have any chance of sticking on an NFL roster.

Klein signed with the Houston Texans after going undrafted over the weekend, but according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the rookie will get a look as a quarterback.

That's the good news for Klein. The bad news is there are four quarterbacks already on the Texans, meaning he will have to bump one off the roster just to make it to training camp and would have to beat out another candidate to stick on the 53-man roster.

The competition: Matt Schaub, T.J. Yates, Case Keenum and Stephen McGee.
