Texans Acquire No. 70 Pick From Jets

The Texans have acquired the 70th overall pick from the Jets and used it to selected Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong. Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter links) reported the trade, which sees Jets GM Mike Maccagnan striking a deal with his old team.

According to Mike Wilkering of Pro Football Talk (Twitter link), in exchange for moving down 12 spots to No. 82, the Jets also received a fifth-round pick (No. 152), a seventh-round pick (No. 229), and wide receiver DeVier Posey.

Posey, 26, has 22 career receptions for the Texans in his three NFL seasons. Meanwhile, that 229th pick was initially acquired by Houston earlier tonight from Cleveland.
