He’s a former Texan because of all the picks-six.
So it’s only right that the Texans get a pick in the sixth for Matt Schaub.
The Raiders announced that the trade was official Friday afternoon, and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the deal was for a sixth-round draft choice.
That’s the late-round pick which was being discussed earlier, and all the Texans needed to move away from the quarterback once viewed as their franchise.
Schaub bottomed out last year with 14 interceptions, four of which were returned for touchdowns in consecutive games, setting a record.
Now, the Texans have the first overall pick in the draft, and the ability to take whichever quarterback deemed next in that role.
The Raiders give him a shot to start with no competition, something that might not have been readily available elsewhere. The Browns had some interest, but didn’t appear willing to part with anything to get him.
