Price per head sportsbooks found out that on Tuesday, former Houston Texans defensive end Sam Montgomery’s agent denied a report by ESPN.com that the team released his client due to marijuana use.
“It is our position that the story written about Sam Montgomery by ESPN which sets forth that he was dismissed from the Houston Texans for using marijuana is completely inaccurate,” Jeff Guerriero said in a statement. “Mr. Montgomery was dismissed from the team for allegedly violating a team rule. This can be confirmed by the Houston Texan personnel.”
When he was asked for an official statement about the release of outside linebacker Willie Jefferson, running back Cierre Wood, and Montgomery, price per head sportsbooks saw that the Texans did not expand beyond the comments made by coach Gary Kubiak at a news conference on Monday.
“I won’t discuss team rules and those type of things,” Kubiak said on Monday. “I’ll make decisions based on a body of work in everything I do. I’ve got five months of work invested in those three young men and made a decision today to move forward.”
