Disgruntled Wide Receiver, Derrick Mason, was traded from the New York Jets to the Houston Texans for a conditonal 7th-round draft pick. With Andre Johnson on the sidelines for a few weeks, the Texans were looking for a slot receiver to help alleviate the pressure on Matt Schaub.
In New York, Mason was unhappy with his lack of production and playing time and his former head coach, Rex Ryan, was unhappy with Mason’s complaining. On the outset, this deal looks like a win-win situation for both teams. I think, once acclimated, Mason can put up decent numbers in Houston, even when Andre Johnson returns and on the Jets’ side of things, it never hurts to rack up some NFL draft picks.
