Houston Texans acquire Gareon Conley from Oakland Raiders for third-round draft pick

The Houston Texans have acquired cornerback Gareon Conley from the Oakland Raiders for a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The teams have yet to officially announce the trade involving Conley, who was the Raiders’ first-round pick and 24th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Texans (4-3) are in need of help in their secondary after Phillip Gaines was carted off the field with an ankle injury in Sunday’s 30-23 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Fellow cornerback Bradley Roby did not play in the game due to a hamstring injury.

Conley, who has recorded 23 tackles and one interception in six starts this season, has collected 67 tackles and four interceptions in total in 23 career games with the Raiders.

The Texans have been improving their team via trade picking up left tackle Laremy Tunsil, and wide receiver Kenny Stills, a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-round selection in 2021 from the Miami Dolphins for a pair of first-round picks (2020, 2021), a 2021 second-round selection, cornerback Johnson Bademosi and tackle Julien Davenport.
