Today the Houston Texans announced the release of veteran center Chris Myers. The roster move will create a $6,000,000 savings towards the team salary cap for 2015. This move also creates $2,000,000 in “dead money” from the remaining unallocated signing bonus money. The total savings on the release is $5,565,000 because a $435,000 salary player moves into the Top 51 after removing Chris Myer’s contract.
Houston’s salary cap space will increase to $19,074,402 as a result of this roster move.
