The Houston Texans are releasing veteran QB Brandon Weeden on Saturday, according to Aaron Wilson.
Weeden, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2012. He spent two years in Cleveland before he was cut in March of 2014 and later signed by the Cowboys. Dallas elected to waive Weeden mid-season, but he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans after they cut Ryan Mallett.
He was entering the final year of a two-year, $4 million contract with the Texans and was set to make a base salary of $1.55 million this year.
In 2015, Weeden threw for 1,044 yards while completing 69.3 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and two interceptions over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 21 quarterback out of 35 qualifying players.
