According to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, Houston Texans free agent offensive guard Chester Pitts will workout for interested teams in Arizona tomorrow.
The 31-year-old Pitts is rehabbing from microfracture knee surgery that forced him to miss most of the 2009 season. The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the team reportedly interested in Pitts. He played for current Seahawks offensive line coach Alex Gibbs while in Houston, so he’s familiar with Seattle’s zone blocking scheme.
Other teams reportedly interested in Pitts include Minnesota, San Francisco, Detroit and Philadelphia. Pitts had earlier indicated that the Seahawks were the frontrunners for his services.
