According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Addison will free up $2,323,529 of available cap space while creating $2.1 million in dead money. 

Addison, 35, originally signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Troy back in 2011. He lasted just a few months in Chicago before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.

After a brief stint with Washington in 2012, the Panthers signed him to their practice squad and later gave him a two-year extension in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $22.5 million contract and signed a three-year, $30.45 million deal with the Bills.

Addison recently finished out his deal with the Bills and was set to earn base salaries of $6.625 million over the final two years of his contract before later agreeing to a pay cut. The Texans signed him to a two-year contract last year. 

In 2022, Addison appeared in 12 games for the Texans and recorded 15 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
