According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Texans released Houston native DeAndrew White after signing wide receiver Quan Bray to the 90-man preseason roster.
DeAndrew White went undrafted in 2015 and spent his first couple of years with the San Francisco 49ers and the New England Patriots, and he was in the Texans training camp last season after being released from the Patriots practice squad. However, White was released by Texans during the preseason and sidelined for the majority of the season due to a serious groin injury in 2017.
White returned later in the season to the Texans after being signed to their 10-player practice squad. He was later promoted to the 53-man roster on Dec. 5, 2017, due to the influx of injuries that plagued the Texans throughout last season.
White was only active in the first two of the four possible games he was eligible to suit up, finishing the ’17 season with only a single reception for 24 yards. White also played sparingly on the special teams as the punt returner, though he wasn’t particularity effective in fielding punts either with four return opportunities for three yards.
The Texans have 11 wide receivers after signing Quan Bray, so it only makes sense to make a roster move from the same skill group. They will now have 10 receivers available on the active roster to move forward for the remaining three games of the preseason.
The Texans salary cap will remain intact after releasing him due to the fact that they didn’t give White any guaranteed money in his contract.
Since being waived by the Texans, White was signed by the Denver Broncos on Aug. 14.
