Texans cut first-round flop Okoye, Orlovsky
Saturday, July 30, 2011
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have cut 2007 first-round pick Amobi Okoye, along with quarterback Dan Orlovsky and receiver David Anderson.
Okoye was 19 when he was drafted 10th overall in 2007, the youngest player ever taken in the first round.
Orlovsky played in only one game in two seasons in Houston and did not complete a pass. He signed a three-year contract with Houston in March 2009, and was Matt Schaub's backup in 2010.
Anderson played all five of his seasons in Houston, and caught 11 passes for 117 yards in 2010.
The team also announced Saturday that it had signed undrafted free agent Darius Morris, an offensive tackle out of Temple.
