Posey will be released by the Jets, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Posey played in each of the Jets' first three preseason games, hauling in seven passes for 60 yards and a score. It wasn't quite enough to make the first round of cuts, however, as the former Houston Texan will now be in search of a new home. There are plenty of teams out there that lack the wide receiver depth of the Jets, so Posey shouldn't be searching for long.

Posey was traded to the Jets on Friday along with a combination of draft picks for the No. 70 overall selection, Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans ultimately used the pick on Arizona State wideout Jaelen Strong, who is the leading candidate to start opposite DeAndre Hopkins this season. Posey, meanwhile, is coming off a tough second season, as he struggled to earn playing time following an Achilles injury suffered his rookie year. He could have a difficult time claiming a roster spot with the Jets, who bolstered their receiver corps this offseason with the additions of Brandon Marshall and second-round draft choice Devin Smith.

Posey (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Posey was inactive last week with no injury, so even if the calf hadn't been an issue, he still may not have cracked the active gameday roster. Damaris Johnson and Keshawn Martin will back up starters DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson.

Posey is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, the Texans' official site reports.

With both Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins in uniform Sunday, Posey rejoins the ranks of the Texans' inactives on Sunday.

Posey, who started in place of the injured Andre Johnson (concussion) on Sunday against the Colts, finished with one catch on one target for 30 yards.

Posey caught a 30-yard pass from backup Tom Savage, who was in the game after starter Ryan Fitzpatrick was knocked out with a knee injury. However, four other players caught at least two passes, so Posey's insertion in the lineup didn't exactly lead to fantasy success. If Johnson is cleared through the concussion protocol and can return for Week 16 against the Ravens, Posey could return to the inactive list, where he was for the first 14 games of the season.

Posey will start Sunday against the Colts in place of the injured Andre Johnson (concussion), according to ESPN.com.

Posey was inactive for the first 13 games of the season, and while he was expected to be active for Sunday's game, it's a bit of a surprise that he leapfrogged Keshawn Martin on the depth chart to start opposite DeAndre Hopkins.

Posey "has a good chance of being active" for Sunday's game against the Colts, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Posey has been inactive for the first 13 games this season, but is in line to play Sunday because of the concussion suffered by Andre Johnson, who is still progressing through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Posey has been inactive for all seven games this season because head coach Bill O'Brien hasn't needed him in the game plan, the Houston Chronicle reports. "When we look at our 46 (man) gameday roster, we're looking at special teams, we're looking at our offensive game plan," O'Brien said.

On game days, O'Brien has carried Keyshawn Martin and Damaris Johnson, both of whom are experienced return specialists. Additionally, Houston's offensive game plan for most weeks is to ride running back Arian Foster as much as it can. So, the opportunities aren't there for Posey.

Posey was inactive for Week 1 because head coach Bill O'Brien wanted more defensive backs and linebackers active against Washington, CSN Houston reports.

While sitting a wideout in favor of another defensive player may be a sound game plan strategy, it is surprising that newcomer Damaris Johnson was active ahead of Posey. Johnson apparently got the nod because of his kick/punt return abilities. If both players are active in a given week, we presume Posey would enter the game at wideout before Johnson.

Posey is listed as inactive for Sunday's regular season opener against the Redskins, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Posey's absence comes as a surprise, since he led the Texans with 10 receptions during the preseason and was expected to serve as the team's No. 3 wideout entering Week 1. The third-year receiver was not listed on Houston's injury report this week, so it's unclear why he won't play Sunday. With Posey out, Keshawn Martin figures to move up the depth chart behind the Texans' starting duo Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins.
