Chris Myers visiting Seahawks

The Seahawks traded last year’s starting center Max Unger to the Saints in the deal for tight end Jimmy Graham and they’re visiting with a potential replacement on Monday.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that Chris Myers is in Seattle for a visit. Myers was released by the Texans earlier this month.

Myers started every game for the Texans over the last seven seasons and has drawn reports of interest from other teams looking for a center without landing a new deal. The Seahawks have also been linked with former Raiders center Stefan Wisniewski, although Wisniewski’s offseason shoulder surgery makes him somewhat riskier as a plan for the starting job in 2015.

Signing Myers would give them a veteran option to use in the event that they can’t find a better one in the draft, which is something Seattle would still need to explore with Myers’s age making him a short-term solution at best.

  1. This is all about getting depth and hedging bets in case things don’t work out…….Often called “due diligence” and one that good teams continue to do all year……….

  2. If he knows zone blocking and can make good line calls , and his contract is reasonable , yes please … we definitely need to draft offensive linemen but I like the idea of the veteran center . This would be a great addition with a drafted rookie center who doesn’t have to start & can take a year or two to season .

  3. Kind of tired of hearing the uneducated talk about this sport. “What Seattle needs to do in order to reload in order to win another SuperBowl…..” LOL! They don’t need ANYTHING. Some pretty moronic, conservative, “I hate Marshawn Lynch” playcalling by Seattle’s Offensive coordinator GAVE the game on a platter to New England. Period.

  4. From what I’ve read, he was well liked in the locker room and by Texans fans. He hasn’t missed a game in years – playing in 153 straight games. He appears to be a cap casualty. He’s getting up there in years.. I don’t see any other reason they’d get rid of him. He just made the Pro-bowl in 2012.
