Texans Roster Cuts Including Rookie DL Ra’Zahn Howard

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.
