Texans cut ties with Owen Daniels

As the Houston Texans continue to revamp and improve their roster under the Bill O'Brien era, tight end Owen Daniels has been the latest cut by the team.

Daniels was released by the Texans before the free agency period began, in order to save approximately $4.5 million in cap relief. The Texans seemed to be interested in resigning free agent Garrett Graham. In 2006, Daniels was selected by Houston in the fourth round, but has battled injuries most notably suffering a fractured fibula last season.

Daniels has participated in no more than 11 games the past three seasons, and was looked at as a future liability. Daniels can still play, just not in a premier role. He can add some much needed depth at the position to a team looking to shore up their core.

Unless any team is willing to part ways with two number picks for Jimmy Graham with the New Orleans Saints, Daniels will fit nicely with a new team.

The Texans have many more decisions to make as far a players entering free agency, along with selecting the first pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
