Houston Trades QB Matt Schaub to Raiders


There may have been a bit of prophecy in my earlier post about NFL prospect Johnny Manziel joining Houston Texans running back Arian Foster next season. The two were spotted sitting together during Thursday night’s Houston Rockets game. As of today, there is a vacancy in the Texans starting QB role.

Matt Schaub was traded from Houston to the Oakland Raiders Friday morning. The benefit for the Texans, some salary cap relief. Houston signed veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick on Thursday. They also hold the number one pick in the upcoming draft. The Texans received a late-round pick in exchange for Schaub.
