The Texans have traded Brock Osweiler and a 2nd round pick to the Cleveland Browns.

This is something you would see out of the NBA. The Browns took on Brock’s massive cap hit, but gain a future 2nd round pick in the process. Cleveland will ship a 2017 4th round pick to Houston too.

What does this mean? Can you say Tony Romo? This blows the door wide open for Romo to join the Texans. I would imagine Jay Cutler is the backup plan here, but expect the Romo rumors to ramp up now.
