There has been a lot of speculation about the Texans being interested in trading for Ryan Mallett. It was put out by multiple people.
However, John McClain who covers the NFL in Houston disputes the report. Here is what he said:
I told you last week Texans wouldn't be signing Matt Cassel. And they won't be trading for Ryan Mallett, either.

At this point, who knows what the Texans are doing. The speculation from McClain is that they will inquire about Brian Hoyer. We will all find out soon enough but one thing is for sure: the Texans absolutely need a QB.
