Texans’ DT Okoye, WR Anderson Seeking Trades
Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, who was an early first-round pick in 2007, isn’t the perfect fit for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense.
Okoye, 24, has collected only 11 sacks during his four-year career with the Texans and would have to play behind either Shawn Cody or Earl Mitchell. But he’s an interesting prospect for 4-3 teams.
A trade would clear up cap space and make more room for a possible contract with either Raiders’ cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha or Bengals’ cornerback Johnathan Joseph.
Sixth-year receiver David Anderson is also on the trading block. Last season, he had 11 catches for 117 yards. Anderson, who is the fourth receiver, signed a three-year deal worth $4.5 million in 2009.
