That look headed into the season and the 1-5 start to the year did nothing to indicate better days awaited the Texans. This makes player development key to the rest of the year, and general manager Nick Caserio said this was the driving factor behind the release of Mercilus.
“It gives some of the other guys maybe another chance to go in there and PLAY AND PERFORMANCECaserio said via the team’s website. “We had some guys early in the season, JG, D-Walk, Jacob Martin, some other guys. Charles played a little bit earlier. That provides opportunities for some of the other guys, so the door is now open.”
Greenard hasn’t been active in the first two games of the year, but he’s had four sacks in the past four weeks and the team’s best passing appears to be with Mercilus gone.
