Cris Carter: Why Tony Romo to the Texans could threaten the Patriots

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans will receive the Cleveland Browns 4th-rounder this season - giving them two picks in that round - and the Browns get the Texans' 6th-round pick.

Head coach Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys talks with Tony Romo during a timeout in the fourth quarter against the Washington Redskins at FedExField on December 22, 2013 in Landover, Md. There are reports they are already shopping Osweiler, and there is talk they might simply cut him and move on.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reported that the Texans cleared $10 million of cap space, pushing up their money available to $31.4 million.

ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the shocking news of a trade between the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns on Thursday afternoon. The Browns will try to trade him, but this deal will be good for them because they got several useful picks in the draft.

I'd be surprised if we see Osweiler playing for the Browns in the fall, because this trade wasn't about acquiring Osweiler. They traded the second pick in last year's draft and dealt down again before actually selecting a player (Corey Coleman).

Texans general manager Rick Smith said: "We are committed to bringing a championship to the city of Houston". The coveted number-one pick in the draft changes value depending on the year, but Garrett is a talent that many National Football League defenses would love to get.

Whatever nonsense is running through her head continues as she recruits Sasha to go rogue for another assassination attempt. But with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) seemingly absent from this episode , it is down to Ezekiel to deliver the rousing speeches.

The quarterback position is still a huge hole, and the Browns will not win without one.

A fourth-round draft pick this year from Cleveland.

Unless Garoppolo is completely untouchable, the Browns should have enough to make a competitive offer. They should be able to get an impact player with that fourth round pick.

What it means: The Browns are loaded in draft picks the next two years. Speculation would be that they would use the ammunition they've stored up to acquire a starting quarterback for this season and beyond. Osweiler eventually lost his job to unheralded backup Tom Savage, and the Texans are happy to get that hefty contract off their books even if they don't land Romo. Remember, the Browns have the number one pick overall, and they just earned a few higher round picks by pulling off this deal.

As the Browns seemingly continue to search for their quarterback of the future, it appears that Cleveland is not afraid to make significant roster moves this time around.
