The Houston Texans released veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday. The impending roster move was first reported by NFL Network. Thomas, 31, suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in December. He is due to a non-guaranteed $14-million salary in 2019. Thomas was acquired by the Texans from the Broncos before last year’s trading deadline. The four-time Pro Bowl selection caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns in seven games after the trade.
Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers. The news of Brown’s trade request comes right after the star wide receiver tweeted a farewell to the Steelers and their fans, saying it is “time to move on and forward.” Brown, 30, has been the subject of widespread trade speculation after he failed to show up to work the day before the season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown was also found guilty of reckless driving after failing to show up for his court proceeding Tuesday. Police cited Brown Nov. 8 for allegedly driving a black Porsche more than 100 miles per hour through Ross Township, Pennsylvania.
Carolina Panthers fullback Alex Armah didn’t wrestle in high school or college, but he knew enough from watching television and defending himself against siblings to recently detained a man trying to break into his car. The suspect, 32-year-old Daniel Cagle, was arrested by Charlotte Mecklenburg police on charges of attempted theft into a motor vehicle, according to the official report.
