Texans trade for Patriots TE Ryan Izzo


Just after releasing veteran TE Darren Fells, the Houston Texans made a trade for a different tight end Thursday, acquiring Ryan Izzo from the New England Patriots for a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.


The 25-year-old Izzo was the Patriots’ seventh-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He played 18 games in his Patriots career, catching 19 passes for 313 yards and a touchdown. With the Patriots acquiring Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith this offseason to go with 2020 draft picks Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene, Izzo’s roster spot became tenuous.
