Although they don’t have to make any cuts until Saturday afternoon, your Houston Texans have decided there’s no point of putting off until tomorrow what can be done today.
Wide receiver-kick returner Chris Thompson waived today by Texans, according to a source. He already has interest from several other NFL teams.— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 28, 2018
Thompson flashed a bit for the Texans on special teams last year, but he was always a long shot to make the team this year, particularly after he missed a good chunk of the preseason with a concussion. Best of luck to him as he looks to continue his NFL career elsewhere.
