It didn’t take long for Rasul Douglas to latch on somewhere. The veteran cornerback was among the second wave of cuts by the Raiders on Monday and by Tuesday he had signed a one-year deal with the Texans according to the Houston Chronicle.
The veteran former starter for the Eagles and Panthers signed for the veteran minimum. He was in a difficult position trying to work his way up the depth chart with the Raiders, especially after they signed former Chargers starter Casey Hayward.
Douglas is coming off a game against the Rams last Saturday in which he had four pass breakups and four combined tackles, but also gave up a couple first down catches and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
I had him not making the roster in my 53-man roster projection. The writing was on the wall and the Raiders released him early to give him a better chance of catching on elsewhere. Good for him that he found a home quickly.
