The Houston Texans have released third-year quarterback Ryan Finley.

The news comes five days after the Texans signed QB Jeff Driskel to a one-year contract.

The Texans acquired Finley in March following a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals. With Finley no longer a part of the team, the Texans will likely enter the 2021 season with Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, and Driskel as their primary quarterbacks.

The Texans still have Deshaun Watson on their roster, but the chances of him returning to play in Houston are slim to none. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Watson will not attend Texans’ voluntary OTAs and still wants out of Houston.

Finley came to Houston after a two-year stint in Cincinnati. After the Bengals drafted the NC State alumni during the 2019 NFL Draft (No. 104 overall), Finley has appeared in a total of eight career games in the NFL while throwing for 638 yards and three touchdowns, to go along with four interceptions.
