Texans Trade DeMeco Ryans To Philly

The Texans have traded Pro Bowl middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans to the Eagles, according to a report by John McClain, who reports the Texans will receive multiple draft picks in return.

The trade will be finalized if Ryans passes a physical with the Eagles on Wednesday, a person familiar with the trade told McClain.

From the report:

Ryans going to the Eagles is a win-win situation. He will fill a glaring need for the Eagles, who should be one of the NFC’s best teams.

Ryans, who’ll enter his seventh season, was the defensive captain and team leader. In Wade Phillips’ 3-4, his role was diminished because the weak-side inside linebacker comes out in passing situations.

Ryans will be replaced by Darryl Sharpton. He rotated with Ryans until he suffered a season-ending torn quad tendon. He was a fourth-round pick in 2010.

    I think texans are throwing away next season. I am will canceling my season tickets.

  • Marcus

    I am really starting to hate this front office.

    This next season would have been our first realistic chance at a SuperBowl and we basically savage one of the best o-lines in all of football and destroy the leadership for the defense.

    There is such a thing as to much change and that has happend here and with it our aspirations for a SuperBowl appearance have all but flown the coup now.

    The Texans look to be the type of team that is always going to be two to three years away from achieving any kind of greatness.
