Texans reportedly reach agreement with Chris Myers

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 16, 2012 – 7:04 pm

The Texans have reached an agreement on a new contract with Pro Bowl center Chris Myers, an unrestricted free agent, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The move is not yet official as it has not been announced by the Texans. Schefter reports that Myers’ deal will be good for four years and $25 million with $14 million fully guaranteed.

The Texans lost starting right guard Mike Brisiel to the Oakland Raiders on Friday evening and released starting right tackle Eric Winston before free agency began on Tuesday, so re-signing Myers would be a huge move for maintaining continuity on one of the league’s best offensive lines.

Myers has started 64 consecutive games for the Texans since being acquired from Denver for a sixth-round pick in 2008. He makes all of the calls at the line of scrimmage in the Texans’ zone blocking scheme and in 2011 became the first lineman in team history to make the Pro Bowl.

UPDATE: Here’s Myers on Twitter (@CMyers55) on Friday evening: “Let me first say thank you to all of the dedicated #Texansfans out there. I am extremely happy to stay here in Houston and be a Texan! Can’t wai to get back down to work and build on last seasons success! Thank you all again!!! #TexansNation”

    Absolutely cannot believe there is no more Winston or Briesel. So many other players should have been cut to keep them…astonishing absolutely astonishing

    I am sure there was a solid reason losing Winston and Brussels. Brown will be in a contract season next year.

    Why cut Winston and keep Jacoby Jones? Winston pulled his own weight. Thats just STUPID! We need a real #2WR… this makes no sense. They should have give Winston Jacoby’s cash.

    I am disappointed to see Winston and Briesel go. I think they are more critical to this team then other areas. Cutting some under performing WRs may have made more sense than cutting an effective RT. Still, it feels like retaining Myers was a huge step, and now the FO just needs to fill the holes with a good draft.
