The Texans have been looking for answers at center since they cut Chris Myers back in 2015. Myers was the only great center this team has ever had. Now there’s a Super Bowl winning center (from the Kansas City Chiefs) on the open market, and some think he’d be a great fit in H-Town.
Another offensive lineman of the Chiefs that was surprisingly let go this offseason was Austin Reiter. Reiter started in 28 games at the center position for Kansas City over the past two seasons, helping them win a Super Bowl in 2019.
Instead of bringing back Reiter, the Chiefs elected to select Creed Humphrey in the 2021 NFL Draft and sign veteran Austin Blythe. Reiter played in 867 offensive snaps in 2020 and didn’t record a single penalty or allow a single sack, per PFF. There are a few teams that could use a reliable center in 2021 and Reiter is definitely the best one available right now.
What do you think? Happy with the status quo of the Texans’ interior line? Think Reiter might be the missing ingredient to a great unit? Just eager to see what signing Caserio pulls out of his hat next?
