Default 2014 Texans have waived/released...

Heard it on the radio.

No link yet

Maybe this thread should be an all encompassing Texans players released/not retained thread?

Brice McCain, a 6th round pick in 2009, has been the nickel CB for years.
Simply a bad re-signing by the Texans. McCain should have been allowed to walk in FA.

Glad he's gone but I hope we're not relying on crappy Brandon Harris as his replacement. I also really hope we're not relying on pathetic defensive back talent evaluator Rick Smith to pick a corner in the draft because he's proven to be completely awful at it.

While I am pleased to see him go, I will never get back the ten years that was taken off my life from watching him play. Best of luck in the future Brice.

It is $900k in dead money off a 2014 cap hit of $1.75 mil so a net cap savings of $850k.

John McClain ‏@McClain_on_NFL
Quote:
Texans released TE Owen Daniels.

The Texans saved $4.5 million on the cap by releasing Daniels.

Owen Daniels counted $6.25 million on the cap. He was scheduled to make $4.5 million. He's recovered from a fractured fibula.

Owen Daniels had been with the team since 2006 when he was a fourth-round pick. This means they must be re-signing TE Garrett Graham.
John Harris ‏@jharrisfootball
Quote:
NFL's current CBA seems to have an indirect impact on player safety going forward..."older" players are getting snipped at much earlier age

NFL dynamics for cap-strapped team RT @taniaganguli Have confirmed HT released Owen Daniels. Saves them $4.5 million in cap space.

Hate to say it, OD but "I earned it" or "I deserve to be here" is NOT what the world is anymore, in any walk of life. #livingproof
