The handwriting was on the wall when he didn’t play on Saturday night. It’s now been reduced to a pink slip.

Per a league source, the Texans have dumped running back Andre Brown.

A fourth-round pick of the Giants in 2009, he has bounced around the league, with four different teams in 2010 (Broncos, Colts, Panthers, Washington). He found a home with the team that drafted him in 2011, spending three years in New York.

Brown signed a one-year, $645,000 contract with the Texans in the offseason, after a pair of 100-yard games for the Giants last season. His breakout game came on a Thursday night in 2012, when he gained 113 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns against the Panthers.
