The Atlanta Falcons have acquired reserve quarterback T.J. Yates in a trade that sends linebacker Akeem Dent to the Houston Texans.

Yates, a fifth-round pick in 2011, will have a chance to compete with Dominique Davis, Sean Renfree and Jeff Mathews for the No. 2 job behind Matt Ryan.

The Houston Texans have released reserve quarterback T.J. Yates after naming Ryan Fitzpatrick their starter.

Yates filled in as a rookie in 2011 when Matt Schaub was injured. He started the last five games of the regular season that year and led the Texans to a win in their first-ever playoff game against the Bengals. He's played sparingly in the last two seasons and had just 113 yards passing in three appearances last year.
