Gareon Conley traded by Raiders to Texans for 3rd-round pick

Gareon Conley

The Oakland Raiders on Monday traded cornerback Gareon Conley to the Houston Texans for a third-round draft pick.

Conley was a first-round pick (No. 24 overall) by the team in 2017 out of Ohio State. He played in just two games as a rookie but 15 last season. He had 37 tackles and three interceptions, including one for a touchdown last season.

This year, Conley has 23 tackles, an interception and two passes defended.

The Texans needed a cornerback with Bradley Roby out due to injury and Johnathan Joseph just returning from injury and not playing great. They also cut cornerback Aaron Colvin after his costly mistake against the Saints in Week 1, making them thin at the position.
