HOUSTON (AP) -The Houston Texans are expected to trade former first-round pick Jason Babin to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for strong safety Michael Boulware, a person close to the negotiations said Saturday
The person did not want to be identified because the deal was not yet completed.
Babin, a defensive end and the 27th pick in the 2004 draft, started every game as a rookie but lost his starting role in 2005 and has played in mostly a reserve role since. Babin appeared in 15 games last season with three starts and had 26 tackles and five sacks.
The Texans needed depth at safety after losing starter Glenn Earl for the season in the first exhibition game.
Boulware, a second round pick in 2004, started eight games last season for the Seahawks and had 39 tackles and two interceptions. He had 73 tackles and four interceptions in 2005 and 63 tackles and five interceptions as a rookie.
