Strong, 23, was taken in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Texans. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $3.281 million rookie contract that included $820,338 guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 (2017), and $705,000 (2018) over the remainder of the contract.

The Texans waived Strong coming out of the preseason before he was claimed off of waivers by the Jaguars. Jacksonville elected to waive Strong last week.

In 2017, Strong has been active for one game but has yet to record a statistic.
