Pats-Texans deal for OT Cannon amended … Thanks to reader Terry G for the heads as the trade between New England and Houston for OT Marcus Cannon has been formally announced and the compensation the Patriots get is somewhat better than originally reported. Those earlier reports indicated that the two teams would be swapping picks in each of the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of this year’s draft. The teams will still be flipping picks in the 6th round with the Patriots receiving #187 and the Texans #194. However, in the final deal the Patriots get the Texans 4th round pick (#122 which the Texans got from Arizona in the DeAndre Hopkins trade last year), while the Texans will get a 5th (#158) from New England.
