The Texans on Monday released a standard statement expressing their disappointment in wide receiver Jaelen Strong’s Sunday arrest for marijuana possession.

“We are disappointed in the choices Jaelen made to put himself in this situation,” the statement attributed to Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Strong, a third-round pick last spring who played college football at Arizona State, was arrested in Scottsdale while riding in a car driven by his college teammate, Packers safety Damarious Randall.

Randall was not arrested. Strong was arrested and released, and it’s up to police if they’ll pursue charges.

Strong caught 14 passes in 10 games as rookie, three for touchdowns.

    His choice in becoming a Texan?

    Randall is one hell of a friend for making sure Strong had a responsible driver instead of risking a DWB (driving while baked).

    The most harmless drug there is and it’s illegal. Hopefully he gets a one time slap on the wrist. Its not like he was out drinking and beating his woman.

    Interesting to see what the Texans will do. They cut a couple of borderline draft picks ASAP for this kind of thing a couple of years ago. But Strong looked like he might develop into a solid receiver.

    I do think it should be legal. I also know that it doesn’t sound like they want to catch guys who smoke. Just stay home, lay Madden, have a couple drinks, smoke a couple j’s and lie low. Too much many on the line to be driving around.

    Colorado. Washington. Oregon. D.C. Amsterdam. Go there. Have fun. Make sure you’re clean for the April test. That is all.

    Good reading comprehension there ariani….not surprised though…logic has never been your thing.

    Until one of our guys misses a whole year for beating up a kid, you probably shouldn’t be throwing too many stones…

    Texans cut bad attitude guys for same thing, except it was during the season, at the hotel before an away game. This really isn’t in the same league. Hopefully, a little latitude for offseason, own time, up and coming guy.

    Seeing as how God grows weed every dang day, He sure must be one BAMF. Players get down on their knees after every game to pray to Him. Maybe the league should look into that.
