Matt Schaub Traded To Cleveland: ERRONEOUS! ERRONEOUS!

New, comments

The voice of the Houston Texans, Marc Vandermeer, allegedly tweeted that Matt Schaub was traded to Cleveland. His account was hacked, and Matt Schaub is still Houston's QB.

Pro Bowl QBs just don't get traded midseason, you know.

Normally, the panicked texts, e-mails, and tweets I receive on a Friday night don't involve Matt Schaub. Tonight was special.

The Twitter account @TexansVoice belonging to Marc Vandermeer, the Texans’ director of broadcasting, was hacked about 8:10 p.m. Friday with the message, "Texans have traded QB Matt Schaub to Cleveland Browns for WR Josh Gordon and a 3rd round pick in 2014 NFL Draft."

The tweet has since been deleted, and Marc Vandermeer now says:

Surely no Texans fan actually believed the Texans traded their starting QB before a pivotal Week Five primetime matchup. For a third round pick and Josh Gordon? Please.

Everyone knows a package of a third round pick and Josh Gordon commands J.J. Watt and Andre Johnson at an absolute minimum.  The Browns are nobody's fool.
