The Texans have traded a conditional draft choice to the Jets for receiver Derrick Mason, according to the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain.

Since Pro Bowl receiver Andre Johnson suffered a hamstring injury, the Texans have been desperate for help on offense. Jacoby Jones started in Johnson’s place during the Texans 25-20 loss to the Raiders on Sunday. He was targeted 11 times, but he came up with only one catch for nine yards.

Mason (5-10, 197), a 15-year veteran, made 13 receptions for 115 yards in five games with the Jets this season after spending six seasons with Baltimore and eight with Tennessee. He’s had eight 1,000-yard seasons – the last in 2008 – when he had 73 catches for 1,023 yards and five touchdowns, while averaging 13 yards per catch. In 2010, he started in 15 games for the Ravens and finished the season with 61 receptions for 802 yards and seven touchdowns.

Mason, 37, will add veteran leadership and depth to the receiving corps.

FACT: Mason has been in the league so long that during his first two seasons with Tennessee, he actually played for the Oilers.
