Zach Fulton has practiced at center during OTAs.
Fulton filled in at center for Kansas City last year when starter Mitch Morse went down with a foot injury and is doing the same right now in Houston with Nick Martin recovering from ankle surgery. Beat writer John McClain of the Houston Chronicle expects Martin to regain his starting post at center when healthy, at which point Fulton would likely move to left guard. Fulton is expected to be one of four new starters on Houston's revamped offensive line. Jun 2 - 12:03 PM

Texans agreed to terms with OL Zach Fulton, formerly of the Chiefs.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal will pay him $7.5 million annually. Fulton played multiple positions along the line in KC but the Texans are expected to use him exclusively at center. He should be a solid upgrade on last year's starter Nick Martin, who earned PFF's No. 33 center grade out of 38 qualifiers in 2017.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are the "favorites" for free agent OL Zach Fulton.

Rapoport adds Fulton is expected to land more than $7 million per year to be the Texans' center. Houston really needs more help at guard, where Fulton played for the Chiefs, but perhaps they plan to move 2016 second-round C Nick Martin. Houston also needs help at tackle.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher predicts sixth-round G Zach Fulton will be the Week 1 starter at right guard.

Fulton started camp rotating with Rishaw Johnson, but is now almost exclusively running with the first team. At 6-5/316, Fulton has the size to be a force in the running game. The Chiefs' line should shake out as LT Eric Fisher, LG Jeff Allen, C Rodney Hudson, RG Zach Fulton and RT Donald Stephenson. We still love Jamaal Charles, mind you, but this is shaping up as a fairly concerning group.

Sixth-round pick Zach Fulton is a candidate for the Chiefs' right guard job.

Fulton split first-team reps with Jeff Linkenbach and Rishaw Johnson during OTAs. At 6'5/316, he has mauler potential and good arm length (33 1/4") for pass protection. The Chiefs believe Fulton is capable of being a Week 1 starter.

Chiefs signed No. 193 overall pick OG Zach Fulton to a four-year contract.

A 40-game starter at right guard for Tennessee, Fulton was a plus run-blocker who held his own in the passing game. He has a decent shot at nailing down a 53-man roster spot as a reserve interior lineman.

Chiefs selected Tennessee G Zach Fulton with the No. 193 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Fulton (6-foot-4 5/8, 316) made 40 starts for the Vols, all at right guard. Although he needs to get stronger (25 bench reps), Fulton has mauler potential in the run game with a powerful profile, and was not a deficient pass protector in the SEC. He has plus arm length for a guard (33 1/4"). Fulton figures to open his NFL career as a reserve, but has a shot to develop into a starter.
