Ryan Finley released by the Houston Texans
Former Houston Texans QB Ryan Finley has been released to waivers by the team, per Ian Rapoport.
Finley was dealt to the Texans during a late-round pick swap in the 2021 NFL draft. This occurred prior to the team opting to sign free-agent QB Jeff Driskel last week, resulting in a loaded quarterback depth chart including third-round draft pick Davis Mills out of Stanford and veteran Tyrod Taylor. With Finley being released to waivers, the quarterback room in Houston becomes less contested. Rumors of Deshaun Watson continuing to demand a trade could result in Driskel, Taylor, or Mills competing for QB1 on a roster with quite a few needs to fill. Finley earned four career starts across two seasons for the Bengals and will look to provide his services as a team's second or third-string option.
