The Houston Texans surprised us by releasing David Quessnberry. Nick Novak losing his job isn’t so much of a surprise.

The Houston Texans have now released a bunch of players as they look to cut down their roster from 90 to 53 players.

Two notable transactions are that the Texans have released offensive lineman David Quessenberry and kicker Nick Novak in favor of the younger Ka’imi Fairbairn.

Quessenberry was surprised that the Texans decided to release him.

The good news for Quessenberry is that he could end up on the Texans’ practice squad.

Novak was also surprised that he was released. Fairbairn is younger and cheaper, so this move does make sense for the Texans.

Hopefully Quessenberry will make it to the Texans’s practice squad. It all will depend on whether or not he clears waivers.  The waiver process will end on Sunday afternoon. So we will know soon whether or not he has a future in Houston.

Queseenberry might be 27 years-old but he doesn’t have much wear and tear on him when it comes to playing football, since he’s missed the past three years after battling cancer.

Now that Queseenberry is healthy it’s going to take him some time to really get back into the groove of things when it comes to playing football.

If Quessenberry does end up on the Texans’ practice squad, any other NFL team would be free to sign him at any point during the upcoming season.
