Patriots trade backup QB

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. _ The New England Patriots have traded backup quarterback Ryan Mallett to the Houston Texans.
The Patriots announced the deal in a release Sunday.
In exchange for Mallett, the Patriots get an undisclosed draft pick from Houston.
Mallett has backed up starter Tom Brady for the past three seasons. New England picked him in the third round of the 2011 draft out of Arkansas. As Brady's backup, Mallett didn't get a lot of playing time and appeared in only four games for the Patriots.
