With the NFL trade deadline just a mere four days away on Oct. 28 and the Houston Texans not only on a bye week this week, but sitting at 2-5 overall, there is no doubt the Texans need to shake things up a little bit.

So with some time on our hands, let’s take a look at five trades the Texans should make that could help for next season, and not just let the players walk without anything in return.
