Former Texans wide receiver Jaelen Strong became the latest to pile on Bill O'Brien, saying on Twitter that the Texans' head coach wasted his first three NFL seasons, ulitmately ruining his career.

The Texans traded up in order to select Strong with the 70th pick of the 2015 draft. He was inactive for the team's first four games that season, but did get two pass, both for touchdowns in his NFL debut, though he finished with just 14 receptions as a rookie.

In 2016, Strong was active for the Texans first eight games, catching 14 passes for 131 yards, but a sprained ankle cost him the second half of the season.

After serving a one-game suspension to start the 2017 season, Strong was waived by the Texans after playing just 20 offensive snaps in a week two win over Cincinnati. 

Strong was arrested for marijuana possession in February 2016.
