RT Eric Winston confirms through Twitter that he's been released by the Chiefs. Winston spent just one season in KC and his attack on fans in his "sickening" & "disgusting" rant made him a polarizing player.

*****
Looks like there was also an "off field incident" that may have been a factor in Winston's hasty exit out of KC when the new HC appeared on the scene ?

I haven't listened to it yet either, but here's the link to the podcast.

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.

One of the things that impressed me most about Newton were his feet. Prior to the injury, I thought he had excellent feet, a really good kick/slide.

Where do the cowboys get this cap space from? It seems like they are always spending free agent dollars even when they have nothing to spend..

Basicaly, they have "restructed" at least 10 contracts, and extended Romo to create cap space. he is doing the NFL version of combining credit cards into a bigger, lower interest loan and then going back reusing the credit cards.

Some teams seem to be able to work the cap and other teams have a history of not being able to manage their $$$$. Where would you rank the Texans/Rick/Olson?

Yep

And they've been doing this for the last 10 yrs or so.

It's standard practice for the Cowgirls, but atleast they're able to add players that could help them win. If Jerrah/Jason and crew weren't leading the Titanic.

Actually, the point is that they have NOT been adding players that can help win...i.e. they have not been winning. They fool the people who get distracted by activity, but they are stupid is stupid does in the draft, free agency, roster construction, and cap management.

Jones and company are the masters at marketing mediocrity as goodness.

They're already something like $20MM over the cap next year. Unless there is a significant increase in the cap in the next 2 years, it will catch up with them HARD.

Keep in mind, we're talking about a team with one play off win in over a decade. A team that has failed to make the play offs when they could have won their division with a 9-7 record the last two seasons. Losing the last game of the year, both years cost them the division.


But.... they make salary cap moves that will leave your head spinning.


Man, I wish we could be like the Cowboys.

The Cowgirls are a bad example,

The Pats, Broncos, Saints, 49ers, Falcons etc... are examples of teams that manage their caps properly and are able to add in FA/Draft.

BoB adds top tier FA's 1 yr and all of the sudden the Texans are in the playoffs and supposedly SB contenders. Coincedence? The teams mentioned above do this every yr.

The Broncos benefited from the Cutler trade, and that was due to the previous regime. But they had to suck for awhile to get here.
The Saints are another bad example.
