2015 NFL Free Agency: Former Texans Matt Schaub, Chris Myers Have Interest From Other Teams

They're no longer Houston Texans, but the longtime QB-center duo of Matt Schaub and Chris Myers are in demand by other NFL teams. Battle Red Blog examines the market.

They're not members of your Houston Texans anymore, but Matt Schaub and Chris Myers are free agents and may have new addresses sooner rather than later.

I know the immediate reaction to this news from many Texans fans will be something in the vein of, "Wait, someone wants to sign Matt Schaub? And not just one team, but perhaps several teams? In 2015?". Instead of marveling over that, I'm just happy Schaub, who was good here for several years and by all accounts is a stand-up guy, has a chance to continue playing in the NFL if that's what he wants to do.

Chris Myers, on the other hand, assuredly has some quality football left in him and would likely still be a Texan if not for the salary cap. The Seahawks are in need of a center after they traded Max Unger as part of the package to acquire Jimmy Graham, and Myers is looking for work. As I'm far from an expert on the subject of Seattle's running scheme and thus don't pretend to know whether Myers, a zone blocking center if there ever was one, would be a good fit for what Seattle does, I would love to see Myers go somewhere with a solid shot of success in 2015. If it's the in the NFC, all the better.
