Patriots trade Ryan Mallett to Texans; Texans release Case Keenum
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.
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.
The Texans will go into the season with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback and Mallett and rookie Tom Savage backing him up.
