Texans part ways with Brice McCain


The Texans did a little housekeeping on Tuesday morning to open up more cap space for them to put to use on Tuesday afternoon and beyond.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team waived cornerback Brice McCain. McCain signed a three-year, $5.25 million deal withHouston before last season, but struggled badly last season in pass coverage.

McCain joined the Texans as a sixth-round pick in 2009 and played in 72 games for them over the last five seasons. Most of his work came in sub packages and McCain leaves the team with five interceptions over the course of his time in Houston.

The move saves the Texans $900,000, which they could use toward addressing the need for better cornerback depth that existed even before McCain was sent packing. According to McClain, however, the team is expected to do that in the draft more than free agency.

    That’s one point in the Bill O’Brien approval column.

    It is about time they sent this CB packing. He was mediocre at best since he got here.
