Ex-Bull Moffitt among Texans' cuts



From the beginning, we said he faced long odds, and former USF linebacker Ben Moffitt, trying to make the Houston Texans' roster as an undrafted rookie, was among 21 players cut by the team Friday.

NFL teams have until Saturday afternoon to make their final cuts. Moffitt could be picked up by another team, but most likely is headed for a practice squad, where he could practice with an NFL team without being on its active roster.

Moffitt is the second Bulls rookie cut this summer, following receiver Amarri Jackson, cut by the Bucs. Cornerbacks Mike Jenkins and Trae Williams, drafted by the Cowboys and Jaguars, respectively, are almost assured of making their teams' final rosters. That means eight USF alums are on NFL rosters, with veterans Frank Davis (Lions), Andre Hall (Broncos), Anthony Henry (Cowboys), Kawika Mitchell (Bills), Stephen Nicholas (Falcons) and J.R. Reed (Eagles).
