Re: Eric Winston released by Chiefs
The Chiefs thought last year they were contenders for the AFC West title and a playoff berth before the season began and needed just a couple more pieces to make their team complete, including an upgrade at RT so they reached when Winston became available. Anyway, as we know their season turned out to be a disaster (they got the first overall pick next month, right?), and now they've got a new regime which wants to pass alot more than the previous one that signed Winston primarily for his rush-blocking abilities, and consequently Winston is on the street this morning. But he's 9 M richer (before expenses) after just one year with the Chiefs and he already got one sweet contract with the Texans so maybe he'll just retire ? On the other hand I'm pretty sure he still lives in Houston and if he'd take the minimum to be a reserve and/or perhaps compete for a starting guard position which would allow him to stay at home with wife and child, maybe he and Rick Smith could work something out ?
