The Houston Texans have begun trimming their roster down to 75 players on Monday with the release of rookie DL Ra’Zahn Howard, according to Aaron Wilson.
- WR Josh Lenz
- OT Matt Pierson
- LB Ryan Langford
- OLB Carlos Thompson
- OT Arturo Uzdavinis
- WR Tevin Jones
We’ll have more roster cuts posted here as the news is available.
Other roster moves include:
- DE Gerald Rivers and CB Duke Thomas (waived/injured)
- C Nick Martin, S Kurtis Drummond, K Ka’imi Fairbairn (reserve/injured)
Houston also placed S Lonnie Ballentine on the physically unable to perform list.
Howard played three seasons at Purdue, but elected to enter the 2016 supplemental draft due to academic reasons. Reports from a month ago mentioned that Howard was planning to transfer from Purdue.
The Texans wound up signing him to a contract shortly after this year’s supplemental draft.
During his college career, Howard recorded 47 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss including three sacks, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.
