Chris Myers retires after 10-year career

After 10 years in the NFL, Chris Myers retired.

The former Texans center called it quits Tuesday on a career that saw him play in a pair of Pro Bowls as an anchor of the Houston offensive line.

A Texan from 2008 to 2014, Myers helped lead the team to a pair of AFC South titles in 2011 and 2012. He made the announcement official on Tuesday morning's SportsRadio 610 "In the Loop" radio program, and also tweeted a thank you.

Head coach Bill O'Brien began his Tuesday press conference by thanking Myers for his service to the Texans, and said the Houston media was gaining a "good teammate" as well.

"Personally, I really appreciate what Chris Myers meant to our coaching staff and team," O'Brien said.

Ben Jones, who played guard on either side of Myers over the past three years, is now the starting center for Houston. He too, had nothing but high praise for his former teammate.

"Heck of a teammate, heck of a family man," Jones said of the married father of three. "He took me under his wing."

Myers is now a radio personality with 610, and can be heard on the Crown Royal Regal Apple postgame show following all Texans contests.
