"I'm being very realistic," Delhomme told the Houston Chronicle on Monday. "I turned 37 last week. I'm not moving my family. I'm (not) going somewhere to start over. This kind of fell into my lap, so to speak."
Though Delhomme didn't reach a decision after the game, he said he would have no trouble calling it a career after this season.
"You never want to say never," Delhomme said. "But ... to come to a place like this, where everybody's on the same page, to see the way these guys work, it's been great. If I've left this game, I've left it on a high note."
Delhomme's lone appearance of the season came during a 23-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the regular-season finale. His last play of the season -- and possibly his career -- was a 5-yard touchdown pass to Bryant Johnson.
