Texans part ways with Garrett Graham, Rahim Moore expected to be cut

Running back Arian Foster’s time in Houston has come to an end and it looks like he’ll have other former Texans keeping him company on the discard pile.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team has released tight end Garrett Graham as well. Graham’s departure doesn’t come as a great surprise after he spent the second half of last season on the inactive list.

Graham caught 49 passes for 545 yards and five touchdowns in 2013, but never seemed to find a place in the offense once Bill O’Brien replaced Gary Kubiak as the team’s head coach. Graham caught 22 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns in 19 games over the last two seasons.

Dropping Graham saves the Texans $3.125 million under the cap. He joins a fairly thin group of free agent tight ends, although his production the last two years suggests that there might not be a long list of suitors for his services.

McClain and colleague Aaron Wilson both report that safety Rahim Moore is expected to join Foster and Graham on the outs in Houston. The 2011 second-round pick of the Broncos signed a three-year deal with the Texans before last season, but never played after starting six of the first seven games of the season. His release would give Houston a little more than $2 million in cap space.

    John Elway let Moore walk last year and replaced him with Stewart. Another genius football move by the GOAT.

    From fighting terrorists as a NYC cop to writing for the Houston Texans, is there anything John McClain CAN’T do?

    Elway was genius for replacing Moore with Stewart. That upgrade was night and day. I’ll forever remember Moore as the person who cost us the Super Bowl in 2013 :(.

    Can’t believe he let the Ravens complete that hail mary…

    None of these moves should come as a surprise. They’re really trimming some of the fat from the roster. Moore was terrible and eventually was replaced in the secondary, which was one of the reasons our defense was so much better in the second half of the season. And Graham has never fit with Bill O’Brien’s style. All in all some good moves that free up cap space and create room for other guys.
