Texans get 2 draft picks, other details of CB Bradley Roby trade revealed

By Mark Lane

If Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio’s process is to gather as many draft picks as possible to execute a rebuild, Clutch City sports fans may be happy with the results.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Texans will get a 2022 third-round pick and a 2023 conditional pick. On top of that, the Texans pick up the tab by paying $7 million on Roby’s base salary and New Orleans paying the remaining $1.8 million-plus.

After signing a one-year contract with Houston in the 2019 offseason, the Texans brought back Roby on a three-year, $36 million contract in the 2020 offseason.

Roby won’t be available for Week 1 as he serves the final game of his six-game suspension that was handed down with five games to go in the 2020 season. The former Denver Broncos 2014 first-round pick was suspended for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
