The Houston Texans are a defensive-minded team. The New York Jets have some solid players to help.

That’s what happened when the Texans hired Lovie Smith as the team’s newest head coach. We’ve seen the handful of moves that Smith and Caserio have made that have brought scheme-fitting guys to the team.

So why not get more dangerous upfront on defense? Here’s what the trade would look like when players get involved:

The Texans get players of need in this trade. Especially at the tight end position, where Caserio mentioned there would be new faces to see this year. Lamarcus Joyner is an experienced NFL veteran and can help form a solid tandem with Eric Murray or Terrance Brooks. The prize of this trade is Quinnen Williams, who would be an excellent complement to the recently re-signed Maliek Collins.

New York adds another “Sam” linebacker to the roster, as the only one on the roster for the Jets right now is Quincy Williams. Robert Saleh can work with lesser-known talent, especially at the linebacker position, and turn them into stars (i.e., Fred Warner).
