Tackle Brandon Frye, a second-year player out of Virginia Tech, spent eight games on the Texans' active roster during his rookie season in 2007.
The Texans have waived tackle Brandon Frye (6-4, 298) from their roster, the team announced today.
Frye was selected by the Texans in the fifth round (163rd overall) of the 2007 NFL draft out of Virginia Tech. He spent the first eight games of his rookie season on the team's practice squad and was promoted to the active roster for the final eight games of the season but remained inactive in each contest.
An athletic player who could play at guard or tackle, Frye was converted from the defensive end position as a freshman at Virginia Tech. He had been listed third on the Texans' depth chart at right tackle behind starter Eric Winston and backup Rashad Butler.
The Texans kept six offensive tackles through Saturday's mandatory cuts that brought the roster down to 53 players. By waiving Frye and previously releasing Cliff Washburn on Sunday, the team now has four tackles remaining: Winston, Butler and left tackles Duane Brown and Ephraim Salaam.
