  • Released players tracker NFL.com

    This list will be updated as more are released. So far, this is the list of players 100% no longer on a team (not rumors of release).

    We may want to kick the tires on the first 2, both OL.

    Texans release LB John Simon.
    Colts sign him to 3 year deal worth 13.5 mil.
    Solid player battling injury.

      Simon was a UFA.
      If you're not following the Astros, you are doing Houston sports wrong.

          Unrestricted free agent = draft pick compensation if signs elsewhere.

          Released = no compensation.

            So far we have 3 extra comps for next year.

              As long as we don't sign any offsetting free agents.

              Bouye is sure to be valued at 3rd round comp.

                It would be fairly odd to let good players go only to replace them with the similar talent level and similar dollars.
                I would say they will be drafting their replacements.

                  It happens, although in this instance the high level players are already signed.

                  But we could sign a FA that offsets Simon or Demps.

                    Possible.
                    Personally, I think Texans are looking at how strong this draft is in the secondary and at edge and decided they would let the expensive re-signees walk and replace them on the cheap.
                    They likely do this high in the draft to ensure quality guys.
                    This to my mind says they will also look to sign a vet at QB and also RT. Quality guys in FA at these positions are scarce this year and at a premium so RT may have to come from the draft.
                    Crennel and co have proven they can mold their charges on the D so it should be a good unit again this coming season.
                    The O on the other hand will need a hand with a competent player at QB.
                    I think Texans will spring a surprise and bring in someone we have not considered yet - like Alex Smith.
