The Houston Texans have revealed their initial 53-man-roster for the 2020 NFL season. Among multiple expected cuts, there were one or two surprises, none more so than the release of defensive lineman Angelo Blackson.

Dropping Blackson was not a move many saw coming, with the recently acquired P.J. Hall a player many were expecting to be cut. Blackson spent the last three seasons in Houston appearing in 40 games and playing in 40% of their defensive snaps in both 2018 and 2019.

This move leaves the Texans with two new faces helping to command the center of their defensive line. Rookie second-round pick Ross Blacklock out of TCU, and third-year former second-round pick of the then Oakland Raiders Hall are now tasked with anchoring the Texans defensive front alongside veteran Brandon Dunn.
