The Houston Texans have released FB Brad Smelley and DL Tim Jackson, and have signed TE Chris Coyle.

With Smelley’s release, rookie FB Jay Prosch has become the team’s main fullback. 

The Houston Texans actually signed Tim Jackson and cut Chris Coyle on June 18th, and have now reversed the transaction.

Coyle signed with the team after the draft but was cut during OTA’s. He will wear #85.

Neither of these moves too relevant in the grand scheme of things. Coyle will have a tough time making the roster with Garrett Graham, Ryan Griffin, and rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz all ahead of him on the depth chart. Neither Jackson nor Smelley were expected to make the final 53-man roster.

The Houston Texans will have their first Training Camp practice on July 26th.
