Initial reaction is... I LOVE THIS TRADE.

I would be fine with his as a Texans fan too. He has the tools, the potential and is at a major position of need. He showed in the past to be a good CB too. However this year he has been downright terrible. Is a piss-poor tackler and has been blowing coverages left and right. 

I personally have always liked him and hope he does very well for you guys.

Based on what I am reading he has been pretty terrible this season.  Hope this works out.  We will have other 3rd rounders so it's worth the "risk" but this better not be a Phillip Buchannon 2.0 trade.

Do you guys play a lot of zone or man?

mostly zone with occasional man. 

That's interesting. I read something earlier before the trade that we switched to a lot more zone this year compared to the man we did last year. That could explain some of his troubles this season to go along with the absolute worst pass-rush.

We'll see how he fares but he will definitely be better than in Oakland.

Given that we're playing Oakland this upcoming week, I'm expecting him to dump every single thing he knows about the Raiders defense to the coaching staff...
