With Keydrick Vincent now in Tampa Bay, former Texan Chester Pitts is the most experienced guard still on the market. For seven years, Pitts was a stalwart on Houston’s offensive line, starting the first 112 games in the franchise’s history. However, he suffered a ’09 season-ending knee injury in last September and spent this offseason recovering from microfracture surgery.
Pitts was supposed to work out for NFL teams today but chose to postpone until next week, according to the Star Tribune. Earlier in the offseason, Pitts told Sirius radio that five teams were interested in his services. One of those teams was the Minnesota Vikings, who are somewhat weak at right guard and thin in the second string after the departure of Artis Hicks.
