The Texans are making roster moves in advance of an NFL deadline Tuesday afternoon to get down to a league limit of 85 players.
The first move is releasing veteran wide receiver Chad Beebe, according to a league source.
Beebe is a former Minnesota Vikings undrafted free agent from Northern Illinois who joined the Texans this offseason.
Beebe, 28, is the son of former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Don Beebe, who caught a key touchdown in the Bills' epic comeback win over the Houston Oilers.
Chad Beebe has 26 career receptions for 310 yards and two touchdowns.
Beebe played in 14 games in 2020 for the Vikings and caught a career-high 20 passes for 201 yards and two scores. He was placed on injured reserve last season by the Vikings.
Beebe played in the Texans' preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints. He was targeted once with no receptions. He returned one kickoff for 20 yards. He had a fair catch on a punt return.
