RFA C/G Myers to Visit Texans

Denver Broncos restricted free agent C/G Chris Myers is planning to visit the Houston Texans this Thursday. Myers is a third-year restricted free agent who received a low tender offer of $975,000 by the Broncos. The 26-year old Myers started all 16 games last season for Mike Shanahan’s Broncos, and he saw action at LG before moving to C after replacing Tom Nalen, who was placed on the injured reserve. If the Texans sign Myers to an offer sheet, then the Broncos will have one week to match that offer or let the versatile lineman go and receive a compensatory sixth round pick.

The Broncos, who reportedly had high hopes on Myers, must have seen offers to Myers coming before giving him such a low tender offer for an offensive lineman who started all last season. The Texans have been searching for a LG and C to fill in for the injuries which swarmed their offensive line positions in 2007. The Texans interest in C/G Rex Hadnot didn’t last long as he didn’t receive a contract offer from the Texans, and C John Wade has yet to decide whether or not he will sign-on and join the Texans in 2008.
