It's been in negotiations for months, and it's finally over. The Buffalo Bills traded wide receiver Eric Moulds to the Houston Texans in exchange for draft picks. Moulds has not been too happy with the Bills organization the past few months, so the move does not come as a surprise.

"Yeah, it's done," said Moulds' personal advisor, Greg Johnson. "I'm ecstatic. I'm relieved, happy and thankful that all parties came to an agreement."

Moulds agreed to a four-year deal worth $14 million with the Texans. At the moment, it is believed that the Bills will receive either a fourth or a fifth-round draft pick in this year's draft. Moulds, who has been with the Bills for ten years, had two years remaining on his contract. He refused to take a pay cut, and the only other option was to seek a trade.

The Bills will have saved about $5.5 million in cap space by trading Moulds.

"I'm excited about it," Moulds said. "I was optimistic through the whole deal, but at the same time, to get closure and get an opportunity to get it done is a big plus."

Although Moulds has not had any outstanding seasons for the Bills lately, he will be the threat that the Texans needed to go along with Andre Johnson. He is also a nice veteran receiver to have to go along with whoever they take in the draft - probably running back Reggie Bush of USC. However, Moulds believes the Texans will surprise everyone this year.

"I would tell them to get their tickets ready. You are going to see a show," Moulds directed to the fans of Houston. "It's not going to be the same Texans you've seen before. It's going to be an exciting time."

Moulds was originally a first-round draft pick by the Bills in the 1996 NFL draft.
