Teams also may have been turned off by the fans suck, we're not gladiators act Winston pulled. He was just politicking to cover up for his extremely avg play at RT last season.
Players turning on the paying customers is never a good idea. It appears to have cost Winston millions.
You nailed it there Steelbtexan, I think that was the dirty little secret about Winston. He got on the soap box a couple times in KC last year, and that's the last thing coachs want to hear from a player. And even though Winston has always been a good to very good run blocker, he's also always been a liability as a pass-blocker, and more and more NFL teams are throwing the ball, so there's that.
