The Texans have cut three players, according to Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston, who tweets that offensive lineman Conor Boffeli, linebacker Paul Hazel and wide receiver Anthony McClung are no longer on the team’s roster.
Of the three players, only Hazel has regular-season NFL experience, having spent his rookie season in Cleveland, where he played sparingly on defense and special teams. Because he only has one accrued NFL season under his belt though, he’ll be passing through waivers along with Boffeli and McClung.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle indicates that this series of moves reduces the Texans’ roster count to the required 75 players. Prior to these cuts, Houston’s official roster listed 79 active players, so we’ll have to wait for an official announcement from the team to confirm whether one more player is being removed from the roster.
