Shaun Cody, Connor Barwin rally fan support for FA teammates on Twitter

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 14, 2012 – 9:50 am

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:

‏ @KevoG_13: @ConnorBarwin98 @ShaunCody95 I’ll mow Mario, Myers, and Briesel’s lawns for a month free of charge!! #houstonwhatugot

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

Good job houstonians. Mario’s didn’t sign and he’s flyin back home. We won the battle but the wars not over. #heheardus #houstonwhatugot
