Houston Texans Cut Stevie Brown

New, comments

The Stevie Brown Era in Houston was rather brief. What does this mean for the Texans as they attempt to determine who'll be contributing in their secondary?

Stevie Brown wasn't even a Texan long enough for us to get a picture of him in a Houston uniform.  This one from his days as a Giant will have to do.

When the Houston Texans signed Stevie Brown about four months ago, the hope was that the team had acquired veteran depth, and perhaps an experienced starter, for the back end of their secondary. Instead, Stevie Brown's time in Houston brings to mind that of Chris Clemons a year ago.

Although it's subject to change, particularly when other teams make their roster cuts, it would appear Brown's dismissal means Andre Hal is now starting at safety with Rahim Moore. Recall that Hal was listed as second on the Texans' first depth chart, behind Stevie Brown, before the preseason opener against the 49ers.

Your thoughts on the decision to jettison Brown on the eve of the third preseason game of the campaign?
