Houston Texans part ways with Brice McCain


ESPN.com reported earlier today the Houston Texans have released cornerback Brice McCain as they said a source confirmed.

The article by Tania Ganguli said:

“McCain re-signed with the Texans last season on a three-year deal worth $5.25 million, with a $1.35 million signing bonus. The Texans will carry $900,000 of dead money by cutting McCain …”

I honestly don’t have a problem with this move by the Texans as this time of year is about salary cap space and getting a deal while trying to improve the team.

This past season, McCain had 32 tackles and one interception with seven pass deflections and no forced fumbles. For his career, he had 124 combined tackles (106 solo) and five interceptions as he was drafted in the sixth round by Houston (188th pick) in 2009.

This move means the Texans should be looking to improve their defensive backfield this offseason, as they might look to the draft to rebuild a defensive backfield that, in my opinion, wasn’t that great last season.

What do you want the Texans to do next in the offseason? Let us know at the Toro Times.
