Free agent WR Cobi Hamilton is working out for the Texans.
Hamilton was waived by the Steelers at final cuts. Even with Jaelen Strong coming off suspension this week, the Texans are preciously thin at receiver.

Steelers waived WR Cobi Hamilton.

Sadly enough, Hamilton spent big portions of the 2016 season as the Steelers' No. 2 receiver, particularly down the stretch and during the playoffs. Pittsburgh will replace him in that role with Martavis Bryant this year.
Sep 2 - 12:19 AM

Cobi Hamilton corralled both of his targets for 72 yards and a touchdown Friday in the Steelers’ preseason win over the Giants.

Hamilton was the star in this one, beating ex-Steeler Valentino Blake for a 44-yard gain in the second quarter and later dusting him again on a 28-yard touchdown reception just prior to halftime. A former practice-squadder, Hamilton played a surprising number of snaps last season but will likely have his role scaled back now that Martavis Bryant is back from serving a one-year suspension.
Aug 11 - 10:16 PM

Steelers re-signed WR Cobi Hamilton to a one-year, $540,000 contract.

Hamilton was an exclusive rights free agent the Steelers decided to get out of the way early. A 2013 sixth-round pick of the Bengals, Hamilton caught the first 17 passes of his career in 2016, and saw snaps in all three playoff games. Despite the early re-up, Hamilton will be far from assured of making the 53-man roster.
Jan 26 - 9:41 PM

Steelers WR Cobi Hamilton caught 3-of-4 targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 17 win over the Browns.

Hamilton caught the game-winning 26-yard score in OT, the third touchdown pass by Landry Jones. The Steelers rested all their key starters, leading to more run for Hamilton out wide. He's been operating as the No. 3/4 receiver in recent weeks, but Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates are now healthy.

Steelers signed WR Cobi Hamilton.

Hamilton was waived from Carolina last month. He's not more than a depth signing, but has practice squad eligibility.

Dolphins claimed WR Cobi Hamilton off waivers from the Bengals.

Hamilton spent the last two seasons on Cincinnati's practice squad. The 2013 sixth-round pick has never appeared in an NFL game. Hamilton will give Miami depth with DeVante Parker sidelined.

Bengals waived WR Cobi Hamilton.

A 2013 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas, Hamilton was never much of a receiving prospect and didn't make enough special teams noise to earn a game-day roster spot. The 24-year-old should generate scant interest on waivers.

Bengals signed WR Cobi Hamilton off their practice squad.

Hamilton takes the roster spot of Dane Sanzenbacher (IR, concussion). He'll only have a bit role in Sunday's Wild Card game at Indy even if A.J. Green (concussion) can't go. Hamilton has never caught an NFL pass since the Bengals selected him in the sixth round of the 2013 draft.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson praised 2013 sixth-round WR Cobi Hamilton's practice reps from last season.

"Hamilton made spectacular plays in practice and I watched him improve every week," said Jackson. "We have a very talented wide receiver group but I don’t think you can ever have too much. It’s going to be fun to see where he fits because he's a big physical player." Hamilton faces long odds of a prominent offensive role but he possesses tackle-shedding ability and is a plus blocker.

Bengals signed WR Cobi Hamilton, C T.J. Johnson, DE David King, CB Onterio McCalebb, LB Bruce Taylor, and C Scott Wedige to reserve/future contracts.

Hamilton was the Bengals' sixth-round pick last April. He spent all of 2013 on the practice squad after being drafted out of Arkansas. Hamilton will be a long shot for a 2014 job behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Andrew Hawkins, and Mohamed Sanu. The Bengals also have Dane Sanzenbacher and Ryan Whalen.

Bengals waived WR Cobi Hamilton.

Hamilton was Tyler Wilson's top target at Arkansas last season, racking up a 90/1355/5 line. But the sixth-round rookie ran a mere 4.56 at the Combine and failed to distinguish himself as a possession receiver at camp. Hamilton is a candidate for the practice squad. He lost out to Dane Sanzenbacher.

Bengals signed sixth-round WR Cobi Hamilton to a four-year contract.

Hamilton (6-foot-1 3/4, 212) lacks top-end speed and is more of a possession receiver who catches slant routes and breaks tackles. He's also a solid blocker on the outside. Hamilton doesn't project as much more than a No. 4 or 5 receiver for the Bengals. He'll compete for a roster spot this summer.

Bengals selected Arkansas WR Cobi Hamilton with the No. 197 overall pick.

Hamilton (6-foot-1 3/4, 212) emerged as Tyler Wilson's go-to target as a senior, catching 90 balls for 1,335 yards (14.8 YPR) and five touchdowns. Hamilton lacks top-end speed (4.56 forty) and has small hands (8 3/4") with a tendency to let passes get into his body rather than secure them naturally. His biggest plus is physicality, as Hamilton is a post-catch tackle breaker and fierce blocker with some Anquan Boldin to his game. The team drafted a possession receiver in Sanu last year, and Hamilton wins underneath on slants and crosses.
