The Houston Texans have released wide receiver Kenny Stills. He is now a free agent.
Any team — who chooses to pursue him — would have to claim him off of waivers. There’s a chance he could potentially find a home with a contender.
“Thank you to the Houston Texans for the opportunity,” Stills said in a Facebook post. “[I’m] grateful for the family I formed in the building and the amazing people who welcomed me to the city. New chapter coming soon.”
The Texans attempted to trade Stills at the trade deadline. However, they were not successful in their attempt.
In the summer time, Stills was arrested in Kentucky. He was charged with several charges in a Breonna Taylor protest.
The charges against Stills was later dropped.
Stills did not play for the Texans on Thanksgiving in their win over the Detroit Lions. He has been hampered with a quad injury.
He last played for the Texans on November 15th against the Cleveland Browns. Stills had one reception for six yards in the contest.
He has not had more than 39 receiving yards in a game this season. He had two receptions for 39 yards and his lone touchdown reception of the season on October 4th against the Minnesota Vikings.
Stills has made 10 appearances this season with zero starts. He has 11 receptions for 144 yards and one touchdown.
Whoever claims Stills off of waivers — if he’s claimed — it’ll be his fourth NFL team. Besides playing for the Texans, he also played for the Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints.
He has appeared in 117 games, including 77 starts. Stills has had 310 receptions for 4,843 yards and 37 touchdown receptions.
Stills also has four carries for eight yards.
