Texans re-sign C Chris Myers
Friday, March 16, 2012
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have re-signed center Chris Myers, salvaging a week in which they lost two offensive linemen and star linebacker Mario Williams.
Myers said Friday night that he had signed a four-year deal. The 6-foot-4 Myers made his first Pro Bowl last season after anchoring one of the NFL's top offensive lines.
Facing salary-cap restrictions, Houston cut right tackle Eric Winston on Tuesday. Williams signed a six-year deal worth up to $100 million with Buffalo, and right guard Mike Brisiel signed with Oakland earlier Friday.
Myers, a sixth-round pick by Denver in the 2005 draft, has started all 64 regular-season games for the Texans since the start of the 2008 season.
