Default Re: Eric Winston released by Chiefs

Winston is seeking three to four million a year, and no one's biting.

Quote:
Its frustrating, because Ive never really been in this situation, Winston told SiriusXMSports.

Winston, 29, said the Chargers and he discussed money, but things kind of fell through.

The tackle was set to make $4.9 million in base salary before the Chiefs released him. He said hes seeking $3 million to $4 million this year and isnt asking for a long-term deal.

I try to look at myself fairly," Winston said. "I dont ever want to be one of those guys that looks at themselves and thinks they hung the moon.

I still feel like Im still playing at a pretty high level, and I feel I can contribute to a team.

I dont think Im asking for pie in the sky numbers," Winston said. "Middle of the road is fine. But, its also frustrating from the sense of, there's still a lot of teams with a lot of money to spend, but it doesnt seem like anyone wants to spend it."
Link.

Maybe he's not considering that teams are still adjusting to the new cap, or that he's perceived as a zone blocker whose real value doesn't match his expectations. If the needs and limitations of all the teams are changing, then he needs to get a new agent who is going to respect those changes.
