Texans Waive Rookie CB Duke Thomas From I.R. With Settlement

The Houston Texans announced Thursday that they’ve waived CB Duke Thomas from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

Thomas, 22, wound up signing on with the Texans after going undrafted out of Texas back in May. He signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Texans and was set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, the Texans elected to waive Thomas with an injury designation last week and he later reverted to their injured reserve list after clearing waivers.

During his four-year college career, Thomas recorded 169 tackles, one sack, six interceptions, a forced fumble and 20 pass defenses for Texas.
