The Houston Texans have cut veteran safety Chris Clemons after signing him to a two-year, $2.7 million contract this spring that included $450,000 in guaranteed money, according to a league source.
The 6-foot-1, 214-pounder had 93 tackles and one interception last season for the Miami Dolphins.
He previously visited the Detroit Lions, who wound up signing former Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo to a two-year, $3.15 million contract.
A former Clemson standout, Clemons has 278 career tackles, 17 pass deflections, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.
The 28-year-old has played five seasons for the Dolphins.
