In exchange, New England will receive a seventh-round pick in 2022.
The Patriots have dramatically upgraded at tight end in recent days while the Texans just cut veteran starter Darren Fells, so this move makes sense for both sides.
Izzo, 25, was drafted in the seventh round by the Patriots out of Florida State in 2018. He’s entering the third year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie contract.
In 2020, Izzo appeared in 12 games for the Patriots and caught 13 passes for 199 yards and no touchdowns.
