Texans work their way down to 78 players


The Texans have started the culling process and are down to 78 players after letting 11 players go on Monday.

Among the players let go is quarterback Stephen McGee, who now owns the distinction of having been let go by each of Texas’ two NFL teams. McGee, a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2009, spent the offseason with the Texans but Houston decided that they no longer needed a fourth arm in camp to go with Matt Schaub, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team has also parted ways with running back Ray Graham, linebacker Elliot Coffey, fullback Zach Boren, guard Bryan Collins, tackle Nick Mondek, defensive end Earl Okine, cornerback Travis Howard, punter Andrew Shapiro, linebacker Ja’Gared Davis, and tight end Adam Schiltz.

The team has until Tuesday afternoon to make three more moves to get down to the 75-man roster limit.

    McGee was the guy who made a college wide receiver out of Tannehill. Then Jarrod Johnson kept him there for a couple more years.

    Dang it, dang it, dang it. I really think we should have kept Ray Graham. I understand we had a very talented runningback committee but he shouldn’t have been the odd man out.

    I wanted to see: Foster 1st (obviously)
    Tate 2nd
    Then Cierre Wood/Dennis Johnson/Ray Graham

    Screw Deji Karim. Only reason he’ll make it is because he’s a “veteran” (i think he’s been in the league for like 2 years)

    All those RB’s are better than Deji. Ray Graham could have possibly been a 1st round pick if he had not gotten injured.

    Did anyone think Shapiro was going to make the team with Lechler back there….

    Ray Graham though… he has 2 TDs in the preseason….
