Falcons Trade Schaub to Texans [David Stefanini]

This from
The Atlanta Falcons will trade backup quarterback Matt Schaub to the Houston Texans, NFL com is reporting, citing unnamed league sources.

The deal would net the Falcons a second-round draft pick, along with other possible compensation.

The Falcons had made a $2 million offer to Schaub, meaning that any team that signed him to an offer sheet would have to surrender first- and third-round draft choices.

With the trade, the Falcons would reaffirm that Michael Vick is the team's starter. Schaub likely would become the Texans' new starting quarterback to replace former No. 1 overall pick David Carr.
Thank God this happened. I was worrying that Vick would not be the starter for the entire season in Atlanta. This trade proves there is no need to worry.
