Yes, Winston had more value on teams like the Texans and the pre-Reid Chiefs, who emphasized the run. I think his deficiency as a pass blocker (and possibly his injury concerns) had more to do with his marketability than his locker room or off the field activities. Having said that, I still think Winston is better than anything the Texans currently have at RT.
