The Houston Texans cut outside linebacker Trevardo Williams on Friday.
The 6-foot-1, 237-pound Williams spent the 2013 season on injured reserve. He was a fourth-round pick last year.
The Texans have now released three of their first five picks in the 2013 draft. Third-round offensive tackle Brennan Williams was waived with a failed physical last month and third-round defensive end Sam Montgomery was cut last season for a violation of team rules.
