Texans Waive Eugene Wilson, Andre Davis, Three Others

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans will sever ties with five players today, one of them is embattled free safety Eugene Wilson.

Wilson, 30, looked lost in coverage last year and was a big factor in the Texans pass defense being one of the worst in the history of the NFL. He was splitting snaps with rookie Troy Nolan by Week 4, but was never able to completely lose his job, probably because Gary Kubiak believed in him.

Also getting the cut was WR/KR Andre Davis, who spent all of last year on IR. While he was a dynamic kick returner for a few years, and filled in ably for Andre Johnson during his last extended injury absence in 2007, his skills had diminished with age. In 2009, he was terrible as a kickoff returner. This was another move that had to be made.

Also getting waived today were LB Isiah Greenhouse, LB Darnell Bing, and DL DeMario Pressly. Most of these players are practice squad fodder, although Greenhouse did play a few games on the active roster due to injuries last year.
