HOUSTON - The Houston Texans announced today that they have acquired QB Cody Pickett in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.
Pickett (6-3, 227), was the 49ers seventh-round pick in the 2004 draft from Washington.
During his time by the Bay, Pickett played in seven games, starting two. As a rookie, he completed four of ten passes for 55 yards against Buffalo.
Last season, Pickett wore several hats for San Francisco, playing quarterback and special teams. He started a pair of games going 13-34 for 130 yards. In Week 8 against Tampa Bay, he pulled the feat of playing on special teams and quarterback. He finished the game 1-1 for 10 yards while rushing for 12 yards on two carries to lead the Niners to their second win of the season.
This is the Texans second trade of 2006. They acquired WR Eric Moulds from Buffalo in April for a fifth-round draft pick.
In order to make room on the roster, the Texans have released QB Matt Baker.
