Nick Caserio did it again. What won’t he do? That dog can’t stop hunting.
Yesterday, the Texans quietly released two more players from their roster. Cornerbacks Brandon Williams, a former third round pick of the Arizona Cardinals, and Mark Fields, an undrafted free agent from Clemson who came to Houston through Minnesota, were cut.

Williams didn’t play a snap for Houston; Fields played in two games for Houston and had one tackle.
Both players were practice squad competitors, Hard Knocks storylines, the type of guys who do everything they can to get special teams snaps and draw position coach attention. Unfortunately for both players, they’re going to have to find a different team to continue their NFL dreams with. Jack Easterby, I mean Nick Caserio, didn’t like what he had seen enough to keep them on the roster.
This opens up the door for Houston to take more flyers on cornerbacks. They just need talent at the position. Something. Anything. Someone. Whether it’s a Canadian Football League backup or a D-III undrafted free agent, every rock needs to be flipped over to try and find discounted cornerback play for the Texans in 2021.
