Tomlinson was released by the Texans on Thursday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tomlinson signed a deal with Houston on May 3 after spending the 2022 campaign in Denver, but it appears his time with the Texans will be cut short.

Broncos' Eric Tomlinson: Two touchdowns in 2022
Tomlinson caught nine of 13 targets for 79 yards and two touchdowns while playing all 17 games of the 2022 season.
Known mostly for his skills as a blocker, Tomlinson operated in a depth role at tight end and saw just 13 targets across 17 games. With that said, he was surprisingly tied for second on the Broncos with two receiving touchdowns. The veteran played at least 50 percent of offensive snaps just once during the 2022 campaign, as rookie Greg Dulcich eventually stepped up as the leader of Denver's tight end corps for most of the season. Tomlinson is set to be a free agent this offseason, so the 30-year-old will likely audition for a spot on the roster with a new coaching staff in the coming months. Nonetheless, Tomlinson's skills as a blocker will likely help him secure his next contract, even if the Broncos decide to move on.... See More ... See Less

Broncos' Eric Tomlinson: Remains sidelined Thursday
Tomlinson (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Tomlinson has now opened Week 18 prep with back-to-back DNP designations on Denver's injury report as a result of an ankle issue. The veteran tight end still has Friday's session to ramp back up to limited/full speed, but Albert Okwuegbunam, Eric Saubert (knee) and Andrew Beck (elbow) would all be in line for additional reps this weekend against the Chargers if Tomlinson is eventually unable to receive the green light....

Broncos' Eric Tomlinson: Finds end zone in win
Tomlinson caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-15 win over the Cardinals.
Tomlinson was the Broncos' most productive tight end in Sunday's victory over Arizona despite playing the third most offensive snaps at the position. The 30-year-old's three targets and three receptions were his highest marks in a game this year, while his touchdown was his first of the season. On the other hand, starter Greg Dulcich was a complete nonfactor in the contest, reeling in just one of his two targets for 11 yards. Going forward, one should expect these roles to swing back in favor of Dulcich as Denver's No. 1 tight end. The rookie will look to bounce back after an underwhelming performance. Tomlinson, however, will not be a trustworthy option for fantasy purposes when the Broncos visit the Rams in Week 16.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Eric Tomlinson: Not targeted in win
Tomlinson failed to record a single target in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Jaguars.
Tomlinson operated as Denver's No. 2 tight end Sunday, but he played just 18 of the team's 61 offensive snaps in the contest. Rookie Greg Dulcich, however, dominated the tight end snap share with 49 snaps on his way to leading the Broncos with 87 receiving yards. Barring an injury to Dulcich, Tomlinson is not a consideration for fantasy rosters as the Broncos head into their Week 9 bye.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Eric Tomlinson: Minimal involvement in loss
Tomlinson caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 16-9 loss to the Jets.
Tomlinson operated as the Broncos' No. 2 tight end in the contest, playing 35 of the team's offensive snaps while starter Greg Dulcich played 47 snaps. The 30-year-old's two targets, two catches and 21 yards were all season highs for the veteran. Though the Broncos tight end room is a bit crowded, it appears the only player with real fantasy value going forward is Dulcich. The rookie played the most snaps at the position Sunday and saw nine targets in the game. With that said, Tomlinson should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos square off against the Jaguars in Week 8.... See More ... See Less
