This is just a PSA-type thing for everyone and their other leagues - I honestly don't know off the top of my head who has Mallet in RW.

This guy kinda blows. He doesn't look any better than he did last year. I have no idea why his name is circulated as a potential trade target for teams who need a starter. I'm worried about NE having him as their backup. I've heard speculation that the Mallet rumors were pushed by Mike Lombardi as a favor to Belichick, and that there was never any substance to it (you'll notice that once Lombardi actually had a GM job, they didn't make a move for Mallet).

It's just one pre-season game (this year) but I've rewatched the Pats/Eagles game for something I'm writing, and I can honestly say that he was not significantly better throwing the ball than, yes, Mr. Tim Tebow.

That is all. Mini-rant.

Mallet is horrible. He gets props being Tom Brady's back up but he has never even had a good pre-season game. If Brady goes down, I can see Garoppolo getting the nod. The Pats should have traded Mallet when they had the chance...greedy bastards.

Texans acquired QB Ryan Mallett from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2016.

The "compensation" is as close to nothing as the Texans could have sent. Seemingly on the block since the day he arrived in New England in 2011, Mallett has been heavily connected to the Texans since they named former Pats OC Bill O'Brien head coach. Mallett adds more depth to the Texans' uninspiring trio of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and Tom Savage, but isn't an obvious upgrade. His acquisition should mean Keenum is sent packing. Despite his inexplicable name recognition, we wouldn't count on Mallett starting any games. He's attempted only four regular-season passes, and has never stood out in exhibition action.

I think the Texans are a bit desperate after a woeful offseason where they acquired a worthless retread in Fitzpatrick and drafted an absolute longshot with Tom Savage... Not only did they do nothing to improve their QB group, they may have taken a step back from 2013, and Mallet doesn't really move the needle any further in the right direction...
