The Houston Texans are releasing WR Anthony Miller according to a report from Aaron Wilson on Wednesday morning.

Texans GM Nick Caserio traded a 5th round pick for Miller and also received a 7th round pick back from the Bears right before camp began. Miller is in the final year of his deal and was thought to be the replacement for Randall Cobb, after Cobb was traded to the Packers in late July. Clearly, Caserio has no issue moving on from players he spent draft capital on. Caserio traded a late-round pick for former Bengals QB Ryan Finley and cut him in May, way before camp started.

The Texans are currently bringing in multiple receivers to fill the void Miller is leaving behind. Miller recorded 5 catches for 23 yards and 1 touchdown during his time in Houston.
