The Houston Texans have traded for quarterback Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2016.
They're cutting quarterback Case Keenum with the arrival of Mallett, a 2011 third-round draft pick from Arkansas.
Mallett was replaced as the backup in New England by rookie Jimmy Garoppolo.
Mallett will back up Ryan Fitzpatrick with the Texans.
