Sucks cuz the guy was actually starting to get it figured out in the NFL. Actually started to look like a legit starting TE and not just a blocker. Really feel for the guy 😞

First pick of the 3rd in the 2014 NFL Draft. Anyone know any other player from that draft class that has produced for the Texans other than Clowney? Don't get me started with Sua Filo pick in the 2nd rd. Thank you Rick Smith.

Yes Yes Yes. This is why Texans should have traded for Jimmy Graham from Seahawks when they made a deal for Duane Brown. CJ need to hang it up and move on to new things.

Damn that sucks. He was just coming into his own. He was Starting to look like a legit TE. Not an All-Star or anything but a little better than just serviceable.

Sorry to hear about his condition but thought he was over rated by the Texans. Not that great at blocking or catching, especially running after the catch.

Play it safe man, invest the money you have and retire comfortably to be with your family.

For his own future he should retire. He can't play 2 to 3 games in a row without getting concussed.

That sucks. Pretty much why my kiddos won't play football.

He couldn’t stay healthy every game it’s the same injury just hang em up he did his time

I’d retire if I had to play for the shitty ass Texans too.

Figured that was coming.

How does that work with that fat contract we just signed him too

Probably for the best. Football ain’t worth it

I have to say this season was worst than that 2-14 season mentally and physically with all those injuries

He was becoming a concuss machine

We wasn’t that good anyways

That's a shame.

Bummer

Bummer

The UT Tower will shine with burnt-orange lights and “17” displayed on its sides to honor the Class of 2017 and this year’s graduates on both Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10: utex.as/2AJ6BHe

Why is the University discontinuing the fall graduation ceremonies? Even this year several colleges including the CNS did not have one. This is so wrong and it is allienating many graduating students who should be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with their University. Their University should honor their efforts and achievements but having the full graduation ceremony for all students graduating in December. There are a very large number effected by this ridiculous decision. Think about not just the dollars that it cost today to put on these ceremonies but the dollars that could be brought in in the future through donations given by these students who feel that their hard work was rewarded by their University. UT, please explain this unfortunate decision and it get it correct for next December.

Congratulations to all the 2017 graduates at The University of Texas at Austin! There's no place like UT! You have so much to be proud of and are well-equipped for a wonderful future! Enjoy your life's journey! Cheers, blessings and love from someone who cares in Far West Texas!

Awesome and congratulations 🤘

In 2008, he insulted Texas students when he was the AD for Rice while at the Rice Alumni tailgate before the Texas game. He said Texas students were just people who weren’t smart enough to get into Rice. Now he’s probably talking about how great Texas is. Liar. Asshole.

You idiots that scream for Beck to be fired. You can’t have any offensive scheme without a line. If you don’t know football, then don’t speak.

As long as he doesn’t take coaches with him, I am ok. UT has been trying to entice Tcu coaches every time they fire one.

Welcome ATX I hope we going to be Champions again.

Terry Harris. A frog leaps to Austin. Terry Harris

Hook ‘em!

Well. We are in for a lot more losing and down years. I’m out.

Welcome to Texas! Now fire Beck tomorrow.

Now fire tim beck

Better mind them boosters

We’re behind you, win or tie! 🤘🤘🤘

Welcome Chris! HOOK EM!!

You still can not get our coach.

Can you bring your OC with you please? 😏

So sorry you left TCU, Chris.

Great hire!

Hot mess. Good luck DC
