Texans re-sign center Chris Myers

The Houston Texans awoke from their slumber and signed center Chris Myers to a four-year deal.

Adam Schefter reports it's worth $25 million with $14 million guaranteed.

It was always going to be a big priority to re-sign Myers, but it became more so when the team cut right tackle Eric Winston in a move to save money.

Continuity is a big key offensive line success. Rashad Butler is the top in-house candidate to replace Winston, but didn't play great in starts in place of left take Duane Brown. Brown was suspended the first four games of 2010.

Myers had just visited division-rival Tennessee Titans. With another free agent center, Scott Wells, striking a deal with the St. Louis Rams, it was unclear the Titans would amplify their pursuit of him.

The Texans have another starting lineman, right guard Mike Brisiel, on the free agent market.

It's unclear if the Titans will look to another free agent center or wait on the draft.
