The Texans found a trading partner for cornerback John Reid, sending him to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a 2023 conditional seventh-round draft pick, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Reid had been informed that he was going to be released. Instead, he's joining the Seahawks.
Reid was drafted last season out of Penn State by former Texans coach-general manager Bill O'Brien.
The Texans traded a 2022 seventh-round draft pick to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Ka'Dar Hollman on Monday, according to a league source.

At Penn State, he was a three-time honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference selection.
He had 72 tackles as a senior, finishing his career with 125 tackles and seven interceptions.
