Mallett of course was at the center of a trade rumor that had the Patriots sending him to the Texans for a mid round draft pick. Glennon won’t be dealt after Lovie Smith deemed him the Buccaneers quarterback of the future.
The Texans were rumored to be discussing a trade for Mallett with the Patriots on Thursday. So far, nothing has happened on that front, and the buzz has died down. These things tend to be fluid, of course, so we’re not ruling out a Mallett trade to Houston, where new coach Bill O’Brien has a history with Mallett from New England, and currently has a pretty glaring quarterback need.
