Texans' Taylor Heinicke Was Barely Better Than Migos' Quavo in High School

It's possible Quavo, a member of the hip-hop group Migos, may have a chance at an NFL career.

Houston Texans quarterback Taylor Heinicke, who played nine snaps against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, narrowly beat Quavious Marshall's single-game completions record (28) among high schools in Gwinnett County, Georgia, on two occasions, per Ari Alexander of KVOA News 4 Tucson:

While Quavo has a successful music career, Heinicke saw regular-season action for the first time after going undrafted in 2015 out of Old Dominion. He briefly replaced T.J. Yates (concussion evaluation) in the third quarter but suffered the same fate, which cut short his time on the field.

Quavo left an Instagram message for the Texans. "Just call me Houston."

He may have looked at the television to see Heinicke in action, and thoughts about picking up the pigskin may have crossed his mind.
