Patriots trade Ryan Mallett to Texans; Texans release Case Keenum

The New England Patriots attempted to showcase quarterback Ryan Mallett in the preseason opener in hopes of creating some interest in the trade market.

While the poor showing in the preseason did not generate the level of interest that the Patriots had hoped, they have managed to trade Mallett today.

Long rumored as a potential trade partner for Mallett, the Houston Texans have acquired him for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2016, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

In his few years in the league, Mallett has completed only one of four pass attempts for 17 yards and an interception. Of course, he has familiarity with Texans head coach Bill O'Brien, who was the Patriots offensive coordinator when Mallett was drafted.

In turn, the Texans have released quarterback Case Keenum, per John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans will go into the season with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback and Mallett and rookie Tom Savage backing him up.
