Texans Trim Roster To 53

The Texans made a flurry of roster moves to get down to 53 players today. Among the notable names that were cut was former Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun. Boddy-Calhoun started at least seven games for Cleveland in each of the past three seasons, but couldn’t crack Houston’s roster after signing a one-year deal back in March.

Receiver Chad Hansen, a fourth-round pick of the Jets in 2017, was also let go. He’s bounced around the league ever since New York cut bait after just one season. Houston also cut ties with reserve pass-rusher Joel Heath. An undrafted rookie in 2016, Heath started 15 games for the Texans across his first two years in the league.

Here are the rest of the players who failed to make the team:

Texans Sign S Tyvis Powell, LB B.J. Bello

The Texans have added a pair of defenders. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed safety Tyvis Powell. Meanwhile, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston tweets that the Texans also added linebacker B.J. Bello.

Powell went undrafted out of Ohio State back in 2016, and he’s bounced between five different teams (including separate stints with the 49ers) over his three years in the league. The 25-year-old has appeared in 18 career games, including seven this past season with the 49ers. He finished 2018 with six tackles and one forced fumble.

Bello went undrafted out of Illinois State in 2017. After spending his entire rookie campaign with the Browns, he spent 2018 with the Cardinals and Eagles. The 24-year-old has appeared in 19 career games (including 16 games during his rookie year), compiling eight total tackles.

The Texans are currently dealing with a handful of injuries on their defense. J.J. Watt is sitting on the active/physically unable to perform list, while Jamal Davis and Walter Palmore are on the active/non-football illness list and active/non-football injury list, respectively.
