The Texans released five players Friday, including starting FS Eugene Wilson.

According to PFW correspondent and Houston Chronicle reporter John McClain, the Texans released Wilson, WR André Davis, LB Isaiah Greenhouse, LB Darnell Bing and DT DeMario Pressley.

Wilson just finished his eighth season in the league and third in Houston. He started 13 games in 2010, recording 56 tackles and three passes defensed. The Texans finished with the league's worst passing defense.

Bing and Davis finished the season on injured reserve. Greenhouse played in two games in 2010, but Pressley did not play. Davis is a ninth-year veteran with over 2,000 career receiving yards.

The way we see it

Wade Phillips, the Texans' new defensive coordinator, clearly didn't see Wilson in his plans, as he attempts to revamp that side of the ball. Wilson could appeal to a team looking for safety depth. Davis' value comes on kick returns, a role he played well, when healthy, in Houston.
