HOUSTON, Texas – Old Dominion’s all-time leading passer is on the hunt for a new home again. The Houston Texans announced they released quarterback Taylor Heinicke Friday afternoon.
In his fourth year, Heinicke made his NFL regular season debut with the Texans in a Week 16 contest against the Steelers. It was shorter than Heinicke or the Texans anticipated, as he left the game with a concussion after just nine plays under center.
Heinicke, ODU’s record-holder in passing yards and touchdowns, went undrafted in 2015. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Vikings.
