Wide receiver Andre Johnson isn’t the only veteran on the way out of Houston.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that the team has informed center Chris Myers that he will be released. Myers was set to make $6 million in 2015, which was the final year of a four-year deal he signed with the team in March 2012. There will be $2 million of his cap hit left as dead money after Myers is released.

Myers has started every game for the Texans for the last seven years after they acquired him in a trade with the Broncos. He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice during his time in Houston and his play has remained good enough that he should get a chance to continue his career -- perhaps with former Texans coach Gary Kubiak in a return to Denver -- even with his 34th birthday coming this September.

Ben Jones was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft as a center, but spent last season as a starter at left guard. He could shift back to center with 2014 draft pick Xavier Su’a-Filo moving into the starting lineup.
