Texans trade QB Yates to Falcons for LB Dent
Previous reports stated Yates had been released on Tuesday
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 19, 3:10 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Reports of T.J. Yates' release by the Texans were exaggerated. Or maybe just erroneous. On Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Yates had been cut, on the same day coach Bill O’Brien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter. Now, it appears the Texans have actually traded Yates to the Falcons. In return, Houston gets LB Akeem Dent. A third-round pick in 2011, Dent appeared in 15 games with seven starts last season. In 2012, he appeared in 16 regular-season games, with 13 starts. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Apparently, once word got out that the Texans would be releasing Yates, teams started calling to inquire about a trade. The Falcons, who would have been fairly close to the top of the waiver priority list, obviously wanted to make sure they didn't leave their potential backup to Matt Ryan to chance. Houston gets a player that projects to be a potential early-down inside linebacker only since he is a plus-run defender but a liability in the passing game.


Texans send quarterback T.J. Yates packing
Case Keenum moves into backup role behind Fitz
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 17, 4:25 pm

Houston Texans
The Texans have released quarterback T.J. Yates. With Yates cut, Case Keenum remains on the team and is expected to serve as Fitzpatrick’s backup. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: The Texans announced earlier in the day that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback heading into training camp. Rookie Tom Savage will be the No. 3 QB behind Keenum. Yates has played sparingly (9 games) over the last three years and will look to catch on with another team prior to training camp.
