The Houston Texans officially waived LB Gerald Rivers on Thursday with a failed physical designation.
Rivers, 26, originally signed on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi back in 2013. Since then, Rivers has played for a number of teams including the Jaguars, Dolphins, Broncos, Giants and Rams before the Texans signed him to their practice squad towards the end of the 2015 season.
Rivers stands to make a base salary of $540,000 for the 2017 season.
Rivers hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2013 season when he was playing for the Jaguars.
