The Houston Texans have been as active as any team on the NFL trade market under first-year general manager Nick Caserio.

Obviously, most rumors in Houston have surrounded disgruntled quarterback Deshaun Watson since he requested a trade early during the offseason. Something could come to fruition on that end ahead of the November NFL trade deadline with the Miami Dolphins looking to pull off a trade.

In keeping with this theme, here's a look at three trade scenarios for the rebuilding Houston Texans to consider over the next couple weeks as the team sits at 1-5.


Houston Texans trade Brandin Cooks to the Green Bay Packers

Texans get: Kevin King, 2022 second-round pick

Packers get: Brandin Cooks

At 28, Cooks doesn't necessarily fit into the Texans' long-term rebuild plans. He's also set to become a free agent after the 2022 season and is slated to count $15.5 million against the cap next year. These are two things that lead us to believe that Cooks could be on his way out of town.

In terms of compensation, the Texans add a high-upside young corner in Kevin King who is in desperate need of a change of scenery. They also add to their draft stockpile with a second-round pick next April. This deal makes sense for Green Bay as the Super Bowl contenders look to give Aaron Rodgers another weapon behind stud wide receiver Davante Adams.
