It's a gamble to trade back unless there are more than one players that you like because someone can always trade up in front of you.
Clearly you should have multiple options in mind. In both these instances the Texans were reported to have gotten exactly who they wanted.
But that wasn't the point - it was they were targeting someone or several people rather than just trading for trades sake.
