The Houston Texans made a surprising veteran quarterback cut this Monday morning. The AFC South franchise has released former Stanford star Kevin Hogan.
Hogan signed with the Texans just a few months ago after getting cut by the Tennessee Titans earlier in the offseason. But Houston is moving on with other quarterback options.
The Texans still have Davis Mills, Kyle Allen and Jeff Driskel at the quarterback position. Mills is expected to take a big step forward this upcoming season.
Hogan, 29, should be able to find a new home elsewhere ahead of the 2022 season. But it's still a bit surprising the Texans released him in the first place.
Davis Mills recently had high praise for Hogan, who he said has provided great input during training camp so far.
“Everyone kind of has some different coaching points that they’ve had in the past that they share with the room,” Mills said, via Texans Wire. We kind of like to bounce things off each other to make sure we’re all progressing at the same pace, and everything is moving in the same direction.”
Hopefully Hogan lands back on his feet before the 2022 season begins.
