The Houston Texans have released cornerback Jimmy Moreland. Moreland, 26, played college football at James Madison University and was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, before Washington had changed their name.
Moreland has started only 10 games out of the 37 he has appeared in, and has recorded 88 tackles, two tackles for loss, half a sack, five pass deflections, and one interception. He only appeared in seven games for Houston during the 2021 season and with the selection of star CB Derek Stingley Jr. out of LSU, and retaining CB Desmond King, the team decided to part ways as they do seem to have a little bit of depth at the position now.
The Texans also have newly signed CB Steven Nelson, Tremon Smith, Kendall Sheffield, and Isaac Yiadom, which provides a lot of starting experience on their depth chart.
