The deed has finally been done.

Brock Osweiler, the quarterback who has famously done a not-so-brilliant job with the Houston Texans has finally been benched.

Savage, as some B1G fans – especially Rutgers – may remember, was the starting signal caller for the Scarlet Knights back in 2009 and the start of 2010 before he injured his hand. The injury led to a freshman, Chas Dodd, coming in and eventually keeping the starting job.

Savage would later transfer to Arizona, didn’t play a single down and then transferred to Pittsburgh where he threw for over 2,900 yards, 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

During his freshman campaign at Rutgers, Savage threw for over 2,200 yards, 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He was named to the All-Freshman Team by the Football Writers Association of America.

The former Scarlet Knights standout probably envisioned an NFL crowd cheering him on as he took the field one day, but not under these circumstances.
