Cushing drew interest from the Seahawks and Raiders last offseason, but wound up sitting out the entire 2018 season.
It now appears as though he’s ready to make the transition into coaching and end his playing career.
Cushing, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2009. He was entering in the fifth year of his six-year, $55.643 million contract that includes $21 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $7.25 million for the 2018 season when the Texans released him.
In 2017, Cushing appeared in five games and recorded 16 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
