Texans trade DeMeco Ryans

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired two-time Pro Bowl linebacker DeMeco Ryans from the Houston Texans for a fourth-round draft pick in 2012.

The Eagles and Texans also announced Tuesday they were swapping third-round choices in 2012. The Eagles now have the 89th pick overall, while the Texans have the 77th pick.

The 27-year-old linebacker and team captain leaves Houston as the Texans all-time leader with 637 tackles while also contributing eight sacks, six forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries and two interceptions in his six-year career. He earned Pro Bowl honors following the 2007 and 2009 campaigns and was an Associated Press All-Pro selection in 2007.

Ryans missed most of the 2010 season after tearing his left Achilles' tendon. Eagles coach Andy Reid calls Ryans a "proven Pro Bowl linebacker" that he can plug into the middle of the defense.
