Texans Continue Cuts Before Roster Deadline Tuesday

The Houston Texans released three players on Sunday, one being third year corner Fred Bennett.  Bennett’s once hype faded after practices and little gametime showed a lack of confidence, immaturity and a failure to improve over his three seasons.  He became a fourth and fifth string corner and the Texans needed to make the move heading into Tuesday’s 4 p.m. league mandated roster trim down to a 75-man roster.  The Texans also released London Crawford and defensive end Panel Egboh.  Head coach Gary Kubiak said on Bennett’s release:

“Obviously, we’re going young at that position.  From that standpoint, it’s been tough for Fred. It’s been an uphill battle, but he’s been very professional. He’s handled himself with a lot of class. Fred’s had some highs and some lows here. He’s been in the starting lineup, out of the starting lineup, back in it, back out. It’s part of the process of this league.”

“There’s no doubt in my mind and in Fred’s mind he can play in this league, and I think he will continue to do that. But in fairness to him, we thought it was better to do it today to give him a better chance to move on somewhere else. We wish him the best, but we just made a decision to go with these young guys.”
