HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)- The Texans have released cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, the team announced Friday afternoon.

Hargreaves, 24, played in six regular season games for the Texans after being claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He started two games and played in both playoff games.

By releasing the 11th pick of the 2016 draft, the Texans save close to $10 million against the salary cap.
