Chris Myers Not Intimidated by Interesting Offseason Ahead

Houston (CBS Houston) – In the midst of his tenth NFL offseason Chris Myers isn’t worried about contracts, dead money, and being cut. It’s the two primary F’s in his life: football and family. 

“I’m just playing ball man,” Myers said Sunday aboard the Princess Cruises ship as part of a Texans care event. “I just go out there and play ball. Obviously the business end kicks in but that will happens when it happens. I’m just out there focused on trying to get better for 2015.”

He has been the starting center for the Texans for 112 consecutive games. It almost seems abnormal to think the offensive line wouldn’t be situated around number 55, but that’s where the Texans are this season.

A difficult year in 2014, father time, and his possible salary has put Myers in the cross hairs as a potential cap casualty.

He is scheduled to make $8 million according to the website The Texans would save $6 million by parting ways with Myers but they would be without a starting center.

That isn’t the focus for Myers. He said he has already started working out for next season because “the older you get the earlier you have to start working out and training.”

He has also checked up on his new offensive line coach, Mike Devlin.

“Really fiery guy,” Myers said of the veteran coach who is entering his 9th year in the NFL. “Has a lot of great coaching experience throughout the NFL. Talked with a bunch of guys he has coached in the past so we’re looking forward to working with him.”

It isn’t all work and no play making Myers a dull offensive lineman. He is staying more than busy with his family. Often referring to Houston as his home, he plans on “lots of time” with the family and even a little coaching, but not football.

“Coaching T-ball,” he said of his offseason plans, “being able to enjoy the kids for the offseason.”
