After selecting two receivers in the draft last week, the Texans have decided to part ways with Jacoby Jones and have released him.

Jones, who was drafted by the Texans in 2007, has been criticized by fans and the media since mishandling a punt during the divisional round of the playoffs against the Balitmore Ravens.

During his five seasons in Houston, Jones failed to be a consistent receiver and return man and had his best season in 2010.

“He’s handled himself with class,” Gary Kubiak said to HoustonTexans.com. “He’s really grown up and done a good job.”
