Texans Sign Center Chris Myers To A 4-Year, $25 Million Contract

The Houston Texans have not had the best start during this free agency period, but they were able to keep the services of center Chris Myers. The Texans and Myers agreed to a four-year contract worth $25 million with $14 million being guaranteed.

Myers is a seven-year veteran and has been a key figure with the Texans since 2008 and this past season was his best as Myers was named to his first ever Pro Bowl. He also has started 66 straight games for the Texans.

Myers did say that he wanted to stay in Houston but he also wanted to test the open market. The Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers were reportedly interested in signing Myers, but the Packers never made an offer and the Titans were unable to reach a deal with Myers.
