Report: Mike Thomas cut by Texans, replaced by Damaris Johnson

Mike Thomas continues to bounce around as he has been cut once again, this time by the Houston Texans. Since Thomas’ break out season with Jacksonville in 2010 when he caught for 820 yards and four touchdowns, he has been cut by Detroit, Arizona and now Houston.

The report initially came from’s Ian Rapoport on Twitter on Sunday.

Mike Thomas, 27, was drafted in the fourth-round by the Jaguars in the 2009 NFL Draft. He was traded to Detroit in 2012 for a fifth-round selection in the 2014 draft.

According to NBC Sports, the Texans have signed former Eagles wide receiver, Damaris Johnson to replace Thomas.

Johnson, 24, was undrafted from Tulsa in 2012 but quickly signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Johnson had 21 catches in two seasons with the Eagles and returned a punt for a touchdown.

The Eagles wanted to trade Johnson before the roster cutting on Saturday, but according to NBC Sports, they weren’t able to due to lack of interest for Johnson.

Johnson now joins a Texans team that just signed New England Patriots quarterback Ryan Mallet and is in their first year under former Penn State coach Bill O’Brien. Johnson joins receivers Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins and Keshawn Martin among other wideouts on the team this season.
