Cut for smoking a cigar, huh?

Updating the news that broker earlier this afternoon, Sam Montgomery, Willie Jefferson, and Cierre Wood (or people close to them) have started to explain their side of the incident that allegedly motivated the Texans to cut ties with them. To Twitter we go...

From Cierre Wood's Twitter account:

My initial reaction is that it is highly unlikely the Texans cut three players for smoking a cigar. It's even more unlikely that one of those players was cut for merely being in a room where two teammates were smoking a cigar.

Assuming, of course, that the cigar was filled with just tobacco.

If you believe the Texans cut three young players, one of whom was a third round pick six months ago and another who quite possibly was looking at getting snaps in an injury-depleted backfield, for smoking tobacco, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you.
