Contract Talk: Chris Myers

In this series we are going to look at the potential free agents of the Houston Texans, and figure out if they work into the plans for the coming years….


One of the most valuable Houston Texans on the team, starting center Chris Myers has been one of the top if not the best offensive lineman for the Texans since coming to Houston in 2008. Myers who is considered under sized for a NFL lineman at 6’4″ and 285 lbs, but is a perfect fit the Texans zone scheme.


Since putting on a Texans jersey, Myers has started all 64 regular season games for the Texans and 2 playoff games. He has been a constant force in the Texans running game, and after an embarassing game againt the New York Jets and Kris Jenkins, Myers has been nothing short of amazing. His ability to handle bigger nose tackles, and ability to move laterally to reach 3 techniques is impressive.


Since coming to Houston the Texans running game ranks per game:


2008    115.4 (13th)

2009    92.2 (30th)

2010   127.6 (7th)

2011   153.0 (2nd)


The Texans have added some parts around Myers, but he is has turned into the top two or three centers in the NFL. The Texans have a chance to keep their offensive line intact for the coming years, and to keep one of the best lines in the NFL together in essential, and it starts with resigning Myers.


Chance Returning to Houston: No choice, he will be back.
