Texans release C Justin Britt, sign DB Kendall Sheffield to active roster

The Houston Texans continue to eat around the edges as they prepare for their free agency moves when the new league year begins March 15.

The Texans released center Justin Britt Friday. The former Seattle Seahawks 2014 second-round pick played in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts and was placed on the non-football illness list thereafter. Britt never played another down for the Texans last season, and Scott Quessenberry played the next 16 games at center.

Sheffield spent last offseason with the Texans but was placed on injured reserve at the end of preseason. Houston released him on Oct. 11, and the Dallas Cowboys kept the former Atlanta Falcons 2019 fourth-round cornerback on their practice squad through the end of the regular season.
