HOUSTON (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Houston Texans are nearing a deal to trade quarterback Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was not yet complete.

Schaub was Houston’s starter from 2007 until last season, when he was benched in favor of Case Keenum after a terrible start to the year. The 32-year-old is a two-time Pro Bowler, who last made the game in 2012.

It was clear after last season that Schaub didn’t have a future in Houston, but his departure looked to be imminent on Thursday night when the Texans signed veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Houston also has the first overall pick in this year’s draft, which includes top quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel.
