FoxSports.com’s Ed Thompson reports that Texans corner back Jacques Reeves will be released, in our first real surprise of the cuts. Reeves had fallen out of favor with the club of late, so this wasn’t a total stunner, but it’s a bit surprising from the standpoint that he was the only cornerback with any real experience on the roster.
Personally, I’ve liked Reeves and thought he kind of got a raw deal here. There also may have been some incentive for the Texans to get rid of his long-term contract while the majority of the salary cap rules are relaxed in the uncapped year.
Gary Kubiak will have a press conference at 3:30, so we’ll probably be updating with more cuts and confirmations of cuts at that point.
