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.

Stevie Brown was playing under a one-year, $825,000 deal that included $40K signing bonus, $40K any game 53-man roster bonus— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 28, 2015
Two years ago, Stevie Brown had eight interceptions with the Giants. Would imagine he'll draw solid interest from NFL teams— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 28, 2015
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?
