    After missing six games in the regular season and two in the playoffs, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub says he is so fired up about training camp that nothing will distract him, including his contract situation. Schaub, 31, enters the last year of the six-year, $48 million contract he signed with the Texans in 2007 when they acquired him from Atlanta for two second-round draft choices. The Texans are expected to wait until after the season to work out a new contract with Schaub, who has no intention of playing anywhere else. “I absolutely want to be back,†Schaub said during an appearance at Fire Station No. 8. “It’s important to me to finish what we started here. I want to remain a Houston Texan for the rest of my career.†The Texans’ policy has been to not negotiate with players during the season. Schaub, who has a base salary of $7.15 million this year, has no problem with it. “I’m just getting ready for training camp, and I’m going to keep the blinders on and try to accomplish everything we know we’re capable of doing,†Schaub said. “We’ll worry about camp and regular season, and the rest will take care of itself as we go. When we look up at the end of the year, I think we’ll like what we see, and things will handle themselves as we go. Every year is a pivotal year. You always want to do your best. I’m trying to be the best quarterback I can be for this team.â€
