New, comments

The Texans didn't just send Martin to New England. They actually got something back for him, too.

Now a Patriot.

News broke yesterday that the national Houston nightmare was over. Keshawn Martin was no longer on the Texans roster, as the Texans traded Martin to the Patriots.

Now, the Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports that the Texans sent Martin and a sixth round draft pick to New England and got a fifth round pick back in the deal.

Honestly, that's a nice return for a player that you're happy to replace. Martin didn't see any playing time with the Texans during last week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Texans also signed Chandler Worthy off the practice yesterday, presumably to take Martin's spot on the roster and to help with the loss of Ryan Griffin.

Martin, a Michigan State product, finishes his three-year Texans career with 38 receptions for 416 yards and three touchdowns.

In New England, he joins a roster strapped for wide receivers, with no proven depth behind Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola
