Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Shaq Mason will be traded to the Houston Texans when official league business allows the transaction on Wednesday.
The deal was first reported as a possibility last week by The Athletic and multiple outlets on Tuesday said both sides were in agreement. NFL Network reported that the Buccaneers will receive a sixth-round draft pick and the Texans will get a seventh-round selection along with Mason.
Tampa Bay saves $5 million under the salary cap, helping to create cash to bring back free agent cornerback Jamel Dean.
Mason, 29, is in the final year of his contract and would have counted $9.5 million against the Buccaneers’ cap in 2023.
A fourth-round pick out of Georgia Tech, Mason started his NFL career with the New England Patriots (2015-2021) and was traded to the Buccaneers prior to the 2022 season. He has 115 career starts in 120 NFL games.
The Texans also agreed to terms on a one-year deal with wide receiver Noah Brown, per the Dallas Morning News.
Brown, 27, set career highs with 43 catches for 555 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games (13 starts) in his fifth season with the Dallas Cowboys in 2022.
