A team source said Moats faced an uphill battle to make the Texans' roster, which also has Steve Slaton, Arian Foster, Chris Henry and rookie Ben Tate at running back. According to the source, the Texans hoped that by releasing Moats now, it would increase his chances of catching on elsewhere.

Moats played in 14 games for the Texans last season and started two games after Slaton struggled. Slaton later suffered a season-ending injury.

Moats, 27, spent two seasons with the Texans and two with the Philadelphia Eagles, and he has eight career rushing touchdowns.
