NEW YORK — New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has made a trade that sends quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, wide receiver Corey Fuller and two first-round picks to Houston.
Fitzpatrick, a fourth-round pick in 2019, and Fuller, a fifth-round selection in 2019 will move from New England to Houston and become Houston’s sixth-round selections.
The Texans also move cornerback Trae Waynes and a 2017 fifth-rounder.
Fitzner, who started two games last season and finished third in the AFC East, has one year remaining on his rookie contract.
Fuller, 26, has not played a snap for the Jets in two seasons, but his play last year was good enough for the Texans to select him with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 draft.
The Jets are expected to have one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, and with Fitzpatrick now playing for the team, he will be a prime candidate to take the next step in his career.
Fuller had two touchdown catches last year.
In a blockbuster trade, the Jets also get cornerback Traee Waynes, a 2017 third-round draft pick, a second-round 2017 third round pick, two 2018 third round picks and a third-rounder in 2018.
The team has also traded linebacker T.J. Watt, who will return to Houston, a sixth-rounder and a fourth round pick.
The Bills got linebacker Joey Bosa, who signed a three-year deal with Buffalo this offseason.
