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.
