Texans re-signed C Chris Myers to a four-year, $25 million contract.
Per Yahoo's Jason Cole, the deal includes $14 million guaranteed. Myers finished as the No. 1 center in Pro Football Focus' 2011 rankings, and helped anchor one of the league's best run-blocking units. Despite visits with several teams, Myers' preference was to return to Houston throughout free agency. As the premier zone-blocking center in the game today, Myers' return is good news for the fantasy values of Arian Foster and Ben Tate. Fri, Mar 16, 2012 08:50:00 PM

Free agent C Chris Myers is "in talks" with the Titans and Texans, according to Profootballtalk.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel hears the Titans have also shown interested in free agent center Scott Wells, a sign that the team is serious about improving at the pivot. Myers' preference is to return to Houston, so the Titans will have to come strong.

Amid rumors of the Packers' interest in him, free agent C Chris Myers told 610 Sports Radio in Houston that he wants to re-sign with the Texans.

"I want to be here," he emphasized. "I want to see things through, and that’s the way it is. So that’s kind of the bottom line of my thinking." Myers has been a Texan since 2008. He has 80 straight starts and was a Pro Bowler in 2011.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers discussed free agent C Chris Myers with his representatives "in one of the technically illegal but nonetheless widespread meetings" at the Combine.

The Journal-Sentinel's venerable NFL writer, Bob McGinn, insists nearly every re-signing and free agent signing in March "germinates" from the "supposedly illegal club-agent meetings in Indy." Pro Football Focus' top-rated 2011 center, Myers makes sense for Green Bay as a replacement for fellow under-sized zone-blocker Scott Wells. It's conceivable that Packers officials leaked the Myers talks to goad Wells into lowering his reported $7.5 million asking price.

Free agent C Chris Myers hopes to re-sign with the Texans.

Myers earned his first Pro Bowl invitation in 2011, and graded out as Pro Football Focus' top center. Reliable beat writer John McClain recently reported the Texans wouldn't "break the bank" to keep him, however. A zone-blocking specialist, Myers hasn't missed a start since 2006. He'll turn 31 in September.

The Texans "won't break the bank" to keep free agents C Chris Myers, RG Mike Brisiel, TE Joel Dreessen, and K Neil Rackers, according to the Houston Chronicle.

That doesn't mean the Texans won't make every effort to retain the foursome, but they're already up against the salary cap with Mario Williams and Arian Foster as the top priorities. Myers was arguably the top center in the NFL in 2011, though he's a purely a fit for zone-blocking teams.

Texans C Chris Myers and DE Antonio Smith have been added to the AFC's Pro Bowl roster as injury replacements.

Myers replaced Maurkice Pouncey, and Smith replaces Patriots DE Andre Carter. It's just as well. Myers outplayed Pouncey all season, finishing as Pro Football Focus' top-rated center as the pivot for one of the league's most dominant ground attacks. Smith was outstanding against the run in Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme.

Texans C Chris Myers underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow in late January.

Myers' rehab took just a few weeks, so he's already "fine." For a veteran interior lineman, elbow scopes are common badges of honor from getting jammed in the trenches.

Chris Myers could solidify his spot as the starting center with a strong performance in Saturday's preseason matchup against the Cowboys.

Wade Smith, who is listed as the No. 2 center on the team's depth chart, is starting the contest at left guard. Look for both to enter the season as starters.

Chris Myers, out since early August with a high ankle sprain, is expected to rejoin the starting lineup Monday night.

Guard Chester Pitts (elbows) isn't far behind, which means the Texans should have all five starters back by the first regular season game. It's good news for an offense with a lot of fantasy stalwarts.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak hopes to have C Chris Myers (high ankle sprain) back by the third preseason game.

Chris White and third-rounder Antoine Caldwell are getting reps in the meantime. With both Myers and guard Chester Pitts expected to be healthy by Week 1, the Texans will return last year's line intact for the regular season.

Texans C Chris Myers is out indefinitely after suffering a high ankle sprain at Tuesday's practice.

Myers, a 16-game starter last year after the Texans acquired him via trade with the Broncos, is a key to Houston's zone-blocking system. Myers' status for Week 1 isn't clear. Third-round pick Antoine Caldwell will see more reps.

Texans acquired OL Chris Myers from the Broncos in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2008.

The sign-and-trade took place after Denver signed Myers to a four-year, $11 million deal with $3 million guaranteed. Myers is an athletic linemen with 16 career starts, all coming in 2008. He'll likely start at center for Houston.

The Texans will host restricted free agent G/C Chris Myers on Thursday.

Denver went cheap in February, extending only low tenders to RFA starters like Myers and key reserves Hamza Abdullah and Domonique Foxworth. Myers would cost Houston a sixth-round pick if he's acquired via offer sheet.
