Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody and linebacker Connor Barwin, the stars of “On the Nose” on Texans TV, started a grassroots Twitter campaign on Tuesday evening to try to keep their free agent teammates Mario Williams and Chris Myers in Houston.
It started with these two tweets from Cody (@ShaunCody95) around 7:30 p.m.:
“Come on Texans fan. We need to keep these guys. Everyone needs to pitch in.”
“I’m gonna pay for Marios gas for all his cars for a week . And I’m takin care of Myers landscaping #whatugot”
Barwin (@ConnorBarwin98) retweeted Cody, then added this:
“Yo Mario I will pay for all of your dogs food for a year…or until we win a superbowl!”
Here are some of the tweets that poured in from fans:

Satisfied with his work after apparently seeing that Williams would not be signing with Buffalo on Tuesday night, Cody tweeted the following:
