Patriots trade QB Ryan Mallett to Texans

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots have traded quarterback Ryan Mallett to the Houston Texans.

The move means second-round draft choice Jimmy Garoppolo will be the backup to two-time MVP Tom Brady. Mallett back up Harvard product Ryan Fitzpatrick in Houston.

Originally a third-round draft pick from Arkansas, Mallett played four games in three years with the Patriots, completing one pass.

The Patriots picked Garoppolo this year in the second round -- the highest coach Bill Belichick has selected a quarterback in New England. In the preseason, Garoppolo was 46 for 79 for 618 yards, five touchdowns and an interception; Mallett was 14 for 26 for 161 yards and a touchdown.

Also Sunday, the Patriots claimed defensive linemen Bruce Gaston and Kelcy Quarles off waivers. New England released linebacker Chris White.

Jets release suspended CB Patterson, WR Hill

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dimitri Patterson went from likely starting cornerback for the New York Jets to being out of a job -- all in the span of one bizarre week.

The Jets released Patterson on Saturday, capping a strange stretch that included an unexcused absence, accusations from both the cornerback and the team, and a suspension.

The move came as the Jets got down to the mandatory 53-player roster limit. Also among the team's 21 cuts were wide receiver Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, and quarterbacks Matt Simms and Tajh Boyd.

The Jets also placed linebacker Antwan Barnes on the reserve-physically unable to perform list as he continues to recover from a knee injury suffered last season. Barnes could begin practicing Oct. 14, with the possibility of being activated within the following three weeks.

Patterson was suspended Tuesday for the rest of the preseason after he left the team, according to the Jets, and went missing before the preseason game against the Giants on Aug. 22 without speaking to anyone in the organization.

Giants sign 7 players to practice squad

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have added running back Michael Cox and six other players to their practice squad.

Six of the seven, including Cox, were cut by the Giants on Saturday before rejoining the team on Sunday. They include cornerbacks Bennett Jackson and Chandler Fenner, linebacker Dan Fox, defensive end Jordan Stanton, and wide receiver Julian Talley.

Cox was the Giants' seventh-round draft pick last year. He played in 14 games as a rookie, including one start. He also led the team with 20 kickoff returns for 436 yards.

The seventh player signed to the Giants practice squad was offensive tackle Nick Becton, who was waived by San Diego.

Chiefs' Smith agrees to 4-yr extension

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has agreed to a four-year, $68 million extension that includes $45 million in guaranteed money, a person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because the team had not announced the deal, which will keep Smith in Kansas City through the 2018 season.

The Kansas City Star first reported the agreement.

Smith and his representatives had been discussing an extension with the Chiefs for several months, and the veteran quarterback was hopeful a deal would be done before the regular season.
