Houston Texans to Move on from Braxton Miller

The Houston Texans are moving on from wide receiver Braxton Miller heading into the week one of the 2018 season. Miller was shopped around in a trade the past week but could not strike a deal leading to Miller's exit from the Texans.

Miller was drafted in the 3rd round out of Ohio State as was one of the most dynamic playmakers in school history. After a shoulder injury playing quarterback, Miller was converted to a wide receiver his final season for the Buckeyes.

In two seasons with the Texans, Miller caught 34 passes for 261 yards and 2 touchdowns. Drafted to be their primary slot receiver, things just did not gel for the offense like they hoped. Rookie Keke Coutee is set to be the starting slot wide receiver for the coming seasons.

Miller will be available to the other 31 teams via the waiver wire on Saturday.
