Texans Release Mike Thomas and Chris Clemons

The Houston Texans continue their roster shuffle heading into week one of the season.

In some more moves, the Houston Texans have released veteran wide receiver Mike Thomas and safety Chris Clemons from their 53 man roster. This comes as a surprise with the recent moves the Texans have made via the waiver wire.

Both Thomas and Clemons were signed as free agents this offseason, to add veterans to a roster that needed depth to improve their roster. Thomas was slated to be the starting slot wide receiver for the Texans offense after a strong camp. While Clemons was to be the third safety in dime packages for the defense.

The two veterans looked like locks for the 53 man roster, but that is all for not with the recent news. Thomas missed significant time during training camp with a head injury and was passed up by Keshawn Martin as the starting slot wide receiver. Clemons played a high number of snaps during the preseason, but that was due to the injuries at the safety position during training camp.

With the release of Thomas he will be replaced by Keshawn Martin as the starting slot wide receiver, while Eddie Pleasant and Shiloh Keo look to step into the third safety spot for the defense.
