I wouldn't be so sure. It's always nice to have a vet that can be depended on & with so many young teams out there.... couldn't hurt. He most likely wouldn't cost the other team a great deal of money, shouldn't hurt their plans going forward. As been stated, the Texans is the only team he's going to be playing #2WR for.
Anyway, that's his agents job. Doesn't hurt the Texans in anyway to cut him early & bank the money, start working on the next thing. The only reason I can think the Texans would have waited so long for, is because they only recently made up their minds that it needs to be done.
Which doesn't look good for this FO (imo).
