Texans plan to use Klein at quarterback
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.
Jaguars part ways with 3 in front office
The others dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were Louis Clark, the team's director of pro personnel, and regional scout Chris Prescott.
The moves came as no surprise given that most new GMs bring in their own personnel staff after the draft.
McDonough served as former GM Gene Smith's right-hand man the last four years. He raised eyebrows last year when he challenged reporters to find a better pro down the road than Jacksonville's third-round draft pick, punter Bryan Anger. The selection was widely mocked. Seattle took quarterback Russell Wilson five picks later.
Clark was promoted in December 2011. Prescott was credited with scouting 2011 first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, who hasn't proven to be a franchise quarterback.
