Yesterday we talked about the potential for the Texans to acquire one of either John Sullivan or Patrick Lewis to shore up the team’s center position. Today the path to acquiring one or the other became a lot clearer:

Sullivan would be easier to acquire due to the fact that he is a free agent, while Lewis goes to the waiver wire, which means that other teams could potentially jump in front of the Texans to claim his services. As of right now, the Texans are 22nd in the waiver wire queue, so there are a lot of teams who would have to pass on Lewis before the Texans could even have a chance to claim him.

Now that both players are on the open market, do you think the Texans will make a move for either? Should they? Let us know in the comments below.
