Texans trade for Ryan Mallett, cut Case Keenum

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.
