The Houston Texans have cut wide receiver Anthony Miller after just two games with the team. Miller will now be a free agent, able to sign with any team he pleases.
Independent NFL reporter Dov Kleiman reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday morning.
He played 2 games for them, and they cut him, head scratching to say the least.

Miller was a former second round selection by the Chicago Bears in 2018. He played for three seasons in Chicago, racking up 1,564 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns during his tenure there. During the 2018 and 2020 season, Miller was on the Bears’ playoff roster. The Texans traded a fifth and a seventh round pick for him in the 2021 offseason.
In his two games with Houston, Miller had five receptions on 11 targets, earning just 23 yards and one score. The 1-3 Texans, already bereft of talent have released him without much explanation. He is a young wide receiver that will likely find a new home soon, though.
