Really hard to say. We don't know what the Texans were "willing" to do or not"willing" to do.
We know the Texans were surprised that the Cap did not go up. We know they had a finite amount of time to get under the cap.
For all we know, they approached Winston & he gave them some indication that it was going to be a long, drawn-out process. They had to cut bait & move on.
I think it was past the time we moved on from Eric Winston, but the Texans have never hinted as much prior to cutting him.
