Texans release right tackle Derek Newton

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Texans released right tackle Derek Newton on Thursday.

Newton tore the patellar tendon in both knees in a Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos in 2016. He didn't play again for Houston, sitting out 2017 on the physically unable to perform list. Newton failed a physical in March.

A starter for every game in 2013, `14 and `15, Newton got a five-year, $26.5 million contract from the Texans. He was a seventh-round selection in the 2011 draft and played in 82 games with 68 starts. His versatility showed when he also played some left tackle and both guard positions for Houston.
