Mallett has basically sat on the sidelines since being drafted by the Patriots in ’11 in the third round out of the University of Arkansas. Mallett also played college football at the University of Michigan.
CSN Houston wrote the following on the trade:
“In 2011, Mallett’s rookie season, Texans head coach Bill O’Brien was the offensive coordinator in New England. The deal has been-long rumored and reported.”
I like this trade because Mallett knows a lot of the O’Brien offensive system, and let’s face it the Texans QBs didn’t produce very well in this ’14 preseason.
Last season, Mallett didn’t attempt a pass in the regular season. In ’12, Mallett was 1-for-4 for 17 yards.
What are your thoughts on this trade, and what QB do you want the Texans to part ways with?
