ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Texans are trading LB Bernardrick McKinney to the Dolphins for linebacker/pass rusher Shaq Lawson. The Texans need to beef up their pass rush after JJ Watt's departure, and McKinney was expected to be a cap casualty if he hadn't been traded. Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans gave McKinney and his agent permission to seek a trade. Once the Texans signed linebacker Christian Kirksey on Friday, many people expected that McKinney's days as a Texan were numbered.

Another trade was announced on Sunday which will send New England tackle Marcus Cannon to Houston in exchange for draft pick swaps between New England and Houston in the 4th, 5th, and 6th rounds, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
