Former Pitt receiver Devin Street headed to Houston Texans

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Former Pitt receiver Devin Street has had quite the whirlwind since last year. Now, he'll try to latch on with the Houston Texans.

Street has been, well, all over the place. He was cut by the Dallas Cowboys, the team that drafted him, after last year's preseason. He was then signed and released by the New England Patriots. After that, he joined the Colts until they cut ties with him before this year's NFL Draft. The Patriots and New York Jets then added and cut him. On Thursday, he was scooped up by the Texans.

Street actually has his first team to thank in part for the move. He was cut by the Jets because they needed to make room for Lucky Whitehead, who they claimed after he was released by the Cowboys in a weird mistaken identity incident. If that doesn't happen, perhaps Street would still be in New York.

With as much moving around as Street has done, there are no guarantees he sticks in Houston. But for now, he's reunited with former Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, who will battle for the starting job.
