Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that they have released center Nick Martin. Running back Duke Johnson was also cut on Friday and they released a couple of other players earlier in the week.
Martin joined the Texans as a second-round pick in 2016 and took over as a starter the next season. He started every game the last three seasons and 62 over his entire time in Houston.
Cutting Martin clears $6.25 million in cap space for the coming year and leaves the team with $2.5 million in dead money.
