(SportsRadio 610) -- The Houston Texans waived veteran wide receiver Kenny Stills on Friday in what was reported as a mutual parting of ways.
Releasing Stills, 28, allows the eighth-year receiver to possibly sign with a contender.
While the Texans have won two games in a row, finally beating teams other than the Jacksonville Jaguars, their overall 4-7 record makes their postseason chances slim to none.
Stills, who's role also diminished with the additions of Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb and the recent resurgence of Keke Coutee, is in the final year of his contract.
The Texans traded for Stills in the deal which brought left tackle Laremy Tunsil from the Miami Dolphins. The Texans gave up two first-round picks and a second-round pick.
