Falcons Trade for QB with as Many Post Season Wins As Matty Ice

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, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Texans have actually traded Yates to the Falcons.

In return, Houston gets linebacker 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.

Yates joins Dominique Davis, Jeff Mathews, and Sean Renfree on the depth chart behind starter Matt Ryan. Yates is the only one with more than one year of experience. And he has as many postseason victories as Ryan.
