Texans release TE Owen Daniels

Owen Daniels @owendaniels has been a solid player for the Houston Texans for many years. But he's 31 years old, coming off a season pretty much lost to a fractured leg and was set to count about $6 million against the salary cap for a team that doesn't have much cap space to begin with. So, Daniels has been cut. The move clears $4.5 million from the Texans' cap.
Daniels said Monday that he feels healthy after that fractured leg pretty much ended his season after Week 5.

Fantasy Analysis:

Ryan Griffin is now the Texans' top tight end. He gave us a glimpse at the end of the season as he caught 14 passes in the final three games. The 2013 sixth-round pick is a big man -- 6-foot-6, 255 pounds -- but is fairly athletic for his size. He will be a deep sleeper in 2014. His stock will largely depend on who is the Texans' starting quarterback this season. That's a question without an answer right now.
