Houston Texans 2012 Free Agency: Arian Foster's Back, Mario Williams Isn't

The move was probably half-football related and half-salary cap related, but it still stinks for Texans fans. DeMeco was the heart of that defense.

Texans Free Agency: Chris Myers Signs, Stabilizes Offensive Line

Houston kept Myers and in turn, should keep the running game held together as two new starters man the right side of the offensive line.


2012 NFL Free Agency: Mario Williams Stays In Buffalo For Third Day, No Deal Yet

Do you want the latest news on Mario Williams? Well, he's still in Buffalo. Shocking, I know...


2012 NFL Free Agency: Mario Williams Still In Buffalo

It's been a long, strange first 21 hours of free agency on the Houston Texans front. It looked like former No. 1 overall pick Mario Williams was not going to leave Buffalo, signing a huge contract with the Bills. Then, last night, reports came out that Williams was leaving Buffalo without a deal and had scheduled other meetings.

Now, it seems Williams has brought his fiancee to Buffalo this morning and is in no hurry to leave. Does that mean he's Buffalo-bound?

Oh, and just for good measure, Lance Zeirlein tweeted that a new, pretty good team has entered the Williams fray. Who could that be? Well, it'd have to be a 4-3 team, since apparently Williams wants to go back to defensive end. Who does that leave? The New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals both fit the bill, but it's an open question whether they have the cap room to make that work. The Atlanta Falcons also fit that bill along with the Detroit Lions. Other than that? I'm stumped...

Texans Free Agency: Chris Myers Says He Wants To Stay With Team And Packers' Rumored Interest Is Wrong

The Houston Texans have some major decisions to make on both sides of the ball with their star running back Arian Foster as a restricted free agent and defensive leader Mario Williams coming back from injury as an unrestricted free agent. But another along the offensive line, center Chris Myers, says he also wants to come back to the team despite recent rumors to the contrary.

Earlier we posted that the Packers were reportedly interested in Myers, but he says that’s something he knows nothing about.

“News to me, man,” Myers told 610 AM in Houston. “I don’t know what was going on. I’m just like anyone else reading that type of stuff, but it is what it is.

“In the long run, I want to be here in Houston, so that’s what I’ve been telling everybody when everyone asks me stuff, and that’s what it sums up to be. I want to be here. 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 made the AFC Pro Bowl team last season for the first time.
