The Houston Texans announced Friday that they’ve released G Jeff Allen from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list with an injury settlement.
The Texans placed Allen on the PUP list back in May.
Allen, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract in Kansas City before signing a four-year, $28 million contract that included $12 million guaranteed with the Texans back in 2016.
Allen had two years remaining on the agreement and was set to make base salaries of $5.75 million and $6 million in 2018 and 2019.
In 2017, Allen appeared in 12 games for the Texans and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 69 guard out of 77 qualifying players.
