Texans trade for left tackle Laremy Tunsil
LAKANAHOUSTON - The Houston Texans were the busiest team in the NFL on roster cutdown day and it was because of a flurry of trades, one of which likely solves their most glaring issue.

The Texans concern over protecting third-year quarterback Deshaun Watson, obviously played a huge role in making a play for this rising talent at tackle.

Since entering the league, hes 4th among active players in yards per catch at 15.98 yards per reception, trailing only Josh Gordon, Desean Jackson and Tyrell Williams.
