Relieving T.J. Yates in the first quarter, Jake Delhomme closed out the Texans' Week 17 loss by completing 18-of-28 passes for 211 yards and one touchdown against the Titans.

Delhomme played all but one possession. He was mostly sharp, relying on check downs and high-percentage plays while hitting Bryant Johnson for one deep shot, good for a 40-yard gain. If T.J. Yates' left shoulder is indeed separated, Delhomme may have to start in the Wild Card round. The Texans' offense would remain run heavy, theoretically minimizing the quarterback's impact on games. Early-game deficits can change that of course, but based on Week 17, at least, Delhomme doesn't appear to be a significant downgrade from Yates.

Jake Delhomme participated in Texans practice Wednesday.

Delhomme was able to report and get in a full session one day after being signed. According to coach Gary Kubiak, Delhomme "came a long way just from the first play of practice to the last play." Delhomme won't be under center against the Falcons, but anything beyond this week will depend on how T.J. Yates performs.

Free agent QB Jake Delhomme reportedly has no interest in playing for the Dolphins.

The Fins approached Delhomme, but the marriage never made sense from the beginning. Like Kerry Collins, Delhomme is finished as anything more than a mentor to a younger quarterback. Who can blame him for passing up an opportunity to play for an 0-4 club with a questionable front office?

The Browns have informed QB Jake Delhomme of his impending release.

Delhomme never had a prayer of seeing his $5.4 million salary after receiving a combined $20 million from the Browns and Panthers last season. Coaches around the league consider him an ideal mentor, so the 36-year-old will receive more interest than expected. Reuniting with John Fox in Denver and returning to Carolina are the two most likely scenarios.

The Charlotte Observer calls the return of ex-Panthers Jake Delhomme or Kerry Collins to Charlotte a "longshot."

The Panthers are looking for a veteran quarterback to bridge the gap to Cam Newton. However, starting Delhomme would bring them closer to Stanford QB Andrew Luck than any bridge to the future. At age 36, Delhomme is done. Collins, meanwhile, has stated his interest in returning to the Titans as a bridge to Jake Locker.
