The Houston Texans released rookies Cierre Wood, Sam Montgomery, and Willie Jefferson. They were released for allegedly smoking weed in their hotel room in Kansas City. Will Grub of Sports Radio 610 tweeted they were smoking a cigar in Jefferson’s hotel room, were called downstairs and accused of using a substance. All three rookies were inactive for the game against the Chiefs, not that it should excuse their actions. Grubb also tweeted that Jefferson met with team officials and they said, “They knew what he had been doing”. It should be noted that Willie Jefferson was kicked off the Baylor football team for failing drug tests. Sam Montgomery, a third round pick was an unexpected name to see involved with this incident. Montgomery was a good player at LSU and was known for his pass rushing abilities. He was unable to make the team at either defensive end or linebacker. Cierre Wood has gotten some garbage time but nothing of significance. He is an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame. These releases are notable because the Texans suffered injuries at the running back and linebacker positions recently. Arian Foster and Ben Tate are injured as well as Brian Cushing who is lost for the season. I hope these young men learn from their mistakes and get another chance at the NFL. Yes, it was supremely stupid of them to be smoking weed in the team hotel. If they wanted to smoke they could have waited to get home, taken a walk or something, there is no excuse for smoking in the team’s hotel room. That said, Aldon Smith was drunk driving in the car with pills and weed at seven in the morning, most likely on his way to practice. Many NFL players have done much worse so I do not think it will kill their chances at an NFL spot, but it has cost them a chance at playing for a solid NFL franchise.
