CINCINNATI — The Bengals were going to release quarterback Ryan Finley on Friday afternoon, but they ended up trading him to the Texans instead.
Houston was willing to give up a future asset to make sure they added the NC State product to their roster.
The Bengals will send Finley and their 2021 seventh-round pick (231st overall) in exchange for the Texans' 2021 sixth-round pick (200th overall) according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Finley, 26, appeared in eight games in his two seasons with the Bengals. He completed 48.7% of his passes for 638 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions. He was 1-3 as a starter. His lone win came against the Steelers on Monday Night Football in Week 15 of last season.
It's unclear what the Bengals received in exchange for Finley, but they were going to cut him loose, so trading him makes sense.
