On March 11 ESPN reports that Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien is cleaning house this year and has just released tight-end Owen Daniels just one day after he said that he was willing to restructure in order to remain on the team. He only had one year left on a three-year contract worth $15 million. This would have counted for $6.25 million of the 2014 season salary cap.

Texans team also released Brice McCain this morning as well. They are trying to re-sign tight-end Garrett Graham to the team, who has garnered a lot of interest from the Buccaneers. Graham used to play backup for Daniels last season, then started in his place after Daniels suffered nondisplaced fibula fracture in week 5.

Owen Daniels signed with the Texans in 2006. he has had 385 career receptions, 29 touchdowns, and 4,617 yards. All of which ranks second in franchise history. As long as Daniels is well, he will likely be picked up by another team, with the best guess being the Baltimore Ravens since former Texans coach, Gary Kubiak, is now there.

What do you think of the Texans letting go of Owen Daniels? Was it a smart move?
