Texans Releasing WR Kenny Stills


Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports that the Texans are waiving veteran WR Kenny Stills on Friday. According to Wolfe, this is a “mutual parting.”

Stills had come up as a potential trade candidate before the deadline last month but the Texans opted to hold on to him.

Even with Houston’s offense playing better, Still has had a limited role and this will give him an opportunity to catch on with a playoff team.

Stills, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Saints back in 2013. He spent two years in New Orleans before he was traded to the Dolphins in return for a third-round pick that became CB P.J. Williams and LB Dannell Ellerbe.

Miami later traded Still to the Texans last year. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $32,000,000 deal and stands to make a base salary of $6,975,000 for the 2020 season. 

In 2020, Stills has appeared in 10 games for the Texans and caught 11 passes for 144 yards receiving and one touchdown.
