After two seasons with the Houston Texans, the team announced that they have waived Jaelen Strong.
Jalen Strong was the Texans third-round selection out of Arizona State in the 2013 NFL Draft. Jaelen Strong had a lot of potential coming out of Arizona State but ultimately became a non-factor for the team overall. During his tenure in Houston, Strong has dealt with off the field issues with the latest coming from this past February where he was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona for marijuana possession and was arrested and later released from jail. His marijuana possession got him suspended for the first week of the season.
After serving his week-one suspension, Strong returned to the field this past Thursday vs. Cincinnati but continued to become a non-factor in the Texans offense. Jaelen Strong was shown his walking papers after the Texans found him expendable and this comes at the wrong as the Texans already have Will Fuller, Bruce Ellington and multiple tight ends out due to injury. Jaelen Strong could get some looks on waivers and could be a depth addition to an NFL roster at this point. Jaelen Strong could get some looks on waivers and could be a depth addition to an NFL roster at this point. I would expect the Cleveland Browns to have potential interest in him on waivers as they just lost Corey Coleman to a broken hand, we will see in the coming day or days if he passes through claimed or unclaimed.
