Today, the Houston Chronicle stated that the Houston Texans had acquired quarterback Cody Pickett via a trade. The only problem is that they said that it was the Tampa Bay Bucanneers that had traded him. Cody Pickett is a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
So, this makes you wonder what the error was. Did they mean to say Tim Rattay instead of Pickett or did they mean to say the San Francisco 49ers instead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? They did mention that Pickett had played in six games and started two for the San Francisco 49ers.
From the Houston Chronicle:
On the day the Texans reported for their first training camp under new coach Gary Kubiak , they acquired veteran quarterback Cody Pickett from the Tampa Bay Bucanneers in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice.
Kubiak wanted another veteran quarterback to join David Carr and Sage Rosenfels. The first-year head coach said if Carr or Rosenfels were injured, he didn't want to be left with only one veteran on the roster.
Prior to acquiring Pickett, rookies Matt Baker and Quinton Porter were the only other quarterbacks on the roster.
Pickett has played in six NFL games, all with the San Francisco 49ers. Both of Pickett's career starts came in 2005 with the 49ers.
