HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans have waived receiver Jacoby Jones after five seasons.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jones caught only 31 passes for 512 yards last season, while star receiver Andre Johnson spent much of the year recovering from injuries. The Texans drafted Ohio State receiver DeVier Posey in the third round and Michigan State's Keshawn Martin in the fourth, making Jones expendable.

A third-round pick in 2007, Jones signed a three-year contract before last season. His numbers dropped from 2010, though, and he fumbled a punt that set up a Baltimore touchdown in the playoffs.

The 27-year-old Jones had his best season in 2010, catching 51 passes for 562 yards and three touchdowns. He was also Houston's punt returner and averaged 10.2 yards on 179 career returns for the Texans.
