Report: Texans releasing QB Ryan Finley
The Houston Texans are releasing quarterback Ryan Finley days after signing Jeff Driskel, NFL Network reported Monday.
The Texans acquired Finley from the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this offseason.
The Texans feature a QB room of Driskel, Tyrod Taylor and Deshaun Watson, who is mired in legal issues and has asked the team for a trade. The team also drafted Davis Mills in the third round of last month’s draft.
Finley has thrown for 638 yards with three touchdowns against four interceptions in eight career games (four starts) with the Bengals, who took him in the fourth round of the 2019 draft.
The 28-year-old Driskel, who was released by the Denver Broncos earlier this month, appeared in three games (one start) with Denver last season. Driskel completed 54.7 percent of his passes for 432 yards with three touchdowns against two interceptions.
Watson is facing 22 lawsuits and an internal NFL investigation into his conduct with massage therapists.
