T.J. Yates traded for Akeem Dent
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Texans traded quarterback T.J. Yates, who was believed to be waived but apparently not, to the Falcons for linebacker Akeem Dent. The trade was announced on Thursday. 

Yates, a former fifth-round pick of the Texans, gives the Falcons some needed experience and depth at quarterback behind Matt Ryan. Playing over 13 games, including a five-week stint as the starter in 2011, the Georgia native has 1,100 passing yards and three touchdowns with a rush score and six interceptions and four fumbles lost. 

Dent is a former third-round pick of the Falcons. In 47 games (20 starts), Dent totaled 136 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three passes defensed.
