Texans release veterans Weaver, Demps, Salaam

The Houston Texans have released DE Anthony Weaver, S Will Demps and OT Ephraim Salaam.

Weaver started 44 games in three seasons for the Texans, recording 121 tackles and one sack during that time. He came to Houston after playing four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

Demps, a seven-year NFL veteran, spent two seasons with the Texans after playing for the Ravens and New York Giants. He recorded a career-low 35 tackles in just five starts last season after losing his starting spot to Eugene Wilson, who also was released by the team in the last week.

Salaam spent three seasons with the Texans and started every game at left tackle in 2007 before losing his starting spot to rookie Duane Brown last season. Salaam started his NFL career in 1999 with the Atlanta Falcons and also has played with the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars.
