Texans Trade for C/G Myers

The Houston Texans acquired the rights to C/G Chris Myers in a trade with the Denver Broncos on Monday. The Texans expressed interest in Myers earlier this offseason, but they decided not to sign him to an offersheet after the Broncos signed Myers to a four-year, $11 million contract. The Texans will give the Broncos their sixth round pick in April’s Draft in exchange for the 6’4″ 300-pound dual position offensive lineman who started all last season for the Broncos. Myers, who helped the Broncos to 11th in the NFL in rushing, started for the Broncos at center for 11 games after starting at left guard earlier in the season.

The Texans are in need of offensive line depth at both the center and guard positions, but especially at center after letting go of C Mike Flanagan. Myers will carry some comfort playing with the Texans in 2008 as Texans HC Gary Kubiak plays a similar offensive philosophy as Broncos HC Mike Shanahan. Also, Kubiak was Myers’ offensive coordinator during his rookie season.
