Out with the old, in with the new.
At least that is what seems to be the thinking of the Houston Texans, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the team is looking to move veteran wideout Jacoby Jones after taking Ohio State WR DeVier Posey in the third-round.
Now that Houston has used a third-round pick on Ohio State WR DeVier Posey, the Texans will attempt to trade veteran WR Jacoby Jones.

Jones, 27, has been a member of the Texans since 2007, totaling 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns on 127 receptions.
This past season, he played in all 16 games, having 31 receptions for 512 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers are not incredible, so it will remain to be seen how easily the team will be able to move Jones and his $7 million remaining over the next two years.
Who Is the Better Option Going Forward?
Posey, on the other hand, missed most of last season, as he was accused of being a part of the Terrelle Pryor tattoo scandal that saw the team lose many of their returning players for most of the season.
During the 2010 season, Posey had 53 receptions for 848 yards and seven touchdowns. At 6'2" and 210 lbs., it will remain to be seen how he will fit into the Texans' system.
It is no secret that the team can use help in their receiver corps, especially after Andre Johnson missed a lot of time last year due to nagging injuries.
A deal still has to be made, but it looks like the Texans are ready to move on and see if they can get Posey in the thick of things in the early goings.
