2013 NFL Free Agency: Shane Lechler To Visit Texans Tomorrow

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Houston Texans will visit with Shane Lechler about their punting job.

"Houston, huh?  Maybe."

John McClain says:

And therein lies the rub. If Lechler wants anything close to what he's made in the past--and frankly, what he's truly worth--it seems unlikely the Texans would be able to afford him. If the Pride of Sealy is willing to take less to play close to home, however, there's a chance this works out. Should the Texans and Lechler fail to come to terms, Donnie Jones would not be a bad consolation prize, assuming the Texans were able to bring him back into the fold; D. Jones was very good last year.
