Houston Texans To Trade Matt Schaub To Oakland; Deal Not Yet Official


Earlier this morning, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders are close on a deal that would send Matt Schaub to Oakland.

The Texans will receive a pick in the 5th-7th round of this year’s NFL Draft. Matt Schaub is headed to Oakland now to take a physical. Once he passes the physical (you never know these days), the deal will then be official.

UPDATE: Deal is official according to Raiders Twitter account.

SportsRadio610 was the first to report the Texans and Raiders were in trade talks for the quarterback. Here’s how some in the media reacted to the trade:

    I just kicked a hole in my cubicle wall and I am starting a small trashcan fire in the breakroom. My goal is to give the office a Oakland feel, to celebrate his departure.

      I just set a Geo Metro on fire in my parking lot. Passers by were eager to help. It’s getting all Oakland-y up in here.

    I’m inclined to believe it. I’m also inclined to say something along the lines of “He’s your problem now.”
