Texans release five, including Eugene Wilson and Andre’ Davis

Braylon Edwards

After more than a month of evaluating their defense, the Texans know where they will use their defenders.   They have also determined what players will no longer be necessary.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports the Texans released five players Friday, including starting free safety Eugene Wilson.   The former Patriots player was a serviceable (and cheap) pickup for Houston in 2008, but was eventually exposed in coverage over the years.   Houston’s free safety spot is wide open.

The Texans also cut wide receiver Andre’ Davis, who had some excellent years as a return man. He made $2.55 million last year despite a hip injury that ended his season before it started.   He and Wilson were due to make $8.26 million combined.

Houston also cut linebacker Issuah Greenhouse, linebacker Darnell Bing and defensive tackle Demario Pressley.

    Too bad it wasn’t Johnson instead of Davis that they released. Teams would kill for him.

    Sorry he is locked up threw 2016, I don’t think you see him going anywhere. He will retire here and be the first Texan in the HoF.
