Wide receiver Cecil Shorts was unemployed for only a few days. Shorts visited the Buccaneers and signed a one-year deal on Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported.

The Texans released Shorts last weekend. He had started four games and played 11 in his only season with the Texans in 2015, but the Texans are going young at the position this season.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs were looking for experience at receiver with Louis Murphy still recovering from a torn ACL.

Report: Texans release WR Cecil Shorts

The Texans drafted two wide receivers in the early rounds of April’s draft and that appears to have squeezed veteran Cecil Shorts off the roster in Houston.

According to multiple reports, Shorts has been released by the Texans as they drop to 53 players. Shorts joined the team last year as a free agent after four seasons with the Jaguars and caught 42 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns.

It was the fourth straight year that Shorts caught at least 40 passes. That production will get him looks in the coming days and weeks, although he only played in 11 games due to groin and hamstring injuries and has never played in all 16 games during a season.

Fantasy Impact:

With Shorts gone, first-round pick Will Fuller and third-round pick Braxton Miller are all but assured of roles alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Jaelen Strong in the Texans offense.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 18. Shorts will play against the Chiefs.

Texans WR Nate Washington (hip, probable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 18. The probable tag means that Washington is all but certain to face the Chiefs. His presence limits the upside of Cecil Shorts and Jaelen Strong.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. With Nate Washington iffy, Shorts’ availability will be key. If both players are out, Jaelen Strong would be a Sneaky Start as the likely starter opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Strong should play quite a bit if either Washington or Shorts is sidelined.
