NFL Trade: Oakland Raiders expected to acquire Matt Schaub from Texans

The Houston Texans are on the verge of trading quarterback Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a late-round draft pick in this May’s NFL Draft. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the trade is expected to happen soon after the Raiders made a stronger push for he Texans quarterback than the Cleveland Browns did.

 

The move comes on the heels of the Texans signing backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Thursday. John McClain from the Houston Chronicle wrote on Thursday that a Schaub trade would net the Texans a draft pick and that appears to be the case.

Nothing is official yet, but it appears Matt Schaub will be an Oakland Raider before the day is through.
