The Houston Texans have parted way with long time Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels. Daniels was scheduled to make $6.25 million entering his final year of his contract and with his release the Texans will save $4.5 million for this season.
Daniels was the second longest tenured Texans player after being drafted in 2006 out of Wisconsin. He has appeared in 100 games and caught 385 receptions for 4,617 yards and 29 touchdowns.
He was coming off a fractured fibula that ended his 2013 season early and with the emergence of rookie Ryan Griffin made his future in doubt.
