Citing a league source, MassLive.com’s Nick Underhill reports the Texans have “real” interest in acquiring Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots.
Underhill told Around The League there is “nothing definite” yet, as it’s still in the “just talking” phase. But Houston’s interest is there.
If the Texans can pull off this trade it would be intelligent, in my opinion. The Texans new coach Bill O’Brien was the Patriots offensive coordinator in 2011, when Mallett threw up a 108.2 passer rating on 19 attempts in his first preseason game.
