In a move that should surprise absolutely no one except his dealer, your Houston Texans advised Jameel Cook that his services were no longer needed. In a related story, I'm setting the over/under of numbers of bags of Doritos sorrowfully consumed in the Cook household today at 8. Narcotics issues aside, this move was coming regardless. Cook was passed on the depth chart by Vonta Leach, and he'd been relegated to a special teams gunner. There are plenty of younger, cheaper, and better options for that roster spot.
The Texans also brought Jon Abbate back, though I think Chris Taylor's ability to back up the starters at both FB and RB likely means Abbate is bound for the practice squad.
