ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders have traded 2017 first-round cornerback Gareon Conley to the Houston Texans for a 2020 third-round pick.
Coach Jon Gruden announced the deal Monday, calling it a difficult decision. The Athletic first reported the trade.
Conley is the third former first-round pick traded away by Oakland in the past 14 months. The Raiders sent 2014 first-rounder Khalil Mack to Chicago for a package that included two first-round picks and 2015 first-rounder Amari Cooper to Dallas for a 2019 first-round pick last season.
Conley never developed into a consistent pass defender during his three seasons in Oakland and was part of a defense that allowed Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers to throw five TD passes in a 42-24 loss on Sunday.
The Raiders will visit the Texans next Sunday.
