Broncos, Chris Myers Primed for Free Agency Reunion?

The Denver Broncos once upon a time had a really good center named Chris Myers. Then, they traded him to the Texans for a low draft pick, and he started every single game there for seven straight years.

Now, the Texans have decided to shave their cap number down a bit and release Myers. The end.

Or not? The moral of the story here is to not foolishly let go of good players, but also hopefully that forgiveness prevails over all.

The Broncos traded Chris Myers to then Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who is now the lead man in Denver. Myers turns 34 in September, but the Broncos have a desperate need at the center position and he would be a nice stop gap at the pivot for a team that is transitioning back to the zone blocking concepts.

Peyton Manning would probably appreciate it too, having a veteran center like Myers who last year ranked third in the NFL at his position in run blocking grade according to Pro Football Focus.

This seems like a no-brainer move if Myers wants to continue his playing career, which it’s assumed at this point that he does. The Broncos should be able to snag him on a pretty team-friendly deal and let Matt Paradis continue to develop underneath one of the top players to play in this scheme at the center position the last decade.

The connection with Kubiak is obvious here, as is the Broncos’ need at the center position. We’re just helping connect the dots but if the Broncos don’t get Rodney Hudson or Stefen Wisniewski when free agency opens up, they might give Myers a call and ask him to come play for a year or two.
