Winston is a smart and articulate guy who is also apparently a capable politician, though I'm unsure what benefits this job offers Winston unless its another line on his resume which might help his career after football ?

I hope he doesn't have to pass block. Or else he's getting cut again next year.

Winston will be in front of the cameras as much as he can. He's a smart guy, but, I have rarely seen someone so blatantly seek the spotlight as much as that guy. If you ever wonder where to find Eric Winston, just look for the TV cameras.

I have never understood this complaint about Winston. All he ever did was respond to media requests.

People behave as if he was putting the Texans second by being on the radio while all the other Texans were studiously in the film room when for all we know they were at home playing naked dunking for Twinkies.

Eric Winston gives me the feel of a guy who cares more about his post NFL career more than his current NFL career. I guess kissing the media's but and clubhouse lawyering pays off. Great Job Eric your getting what you always wanted.

Neither have I. His were the more informative player interviews I heard anywhere. Played pretty well here, filled leadership void on offensive side, smart articulate guy with a plan. More power to him as his career winds down, imo.

I don't have a link to prove Winston was a clubhouse lawyer, although I did here on the Koch/Kalu show that there was some of this in the Texans lockerroom. I do know that to become a player rep you have to part politician.

Default Re: Eric Winston elected as President of the NFL Players Association

The next CBA negotiations should be interesting with Winston involved. That is, if he has the manbag to take a stand on topics he talked so much about during the last lockout. I think he does, which leads me to believe the next negotiations won't be easy either

I know that Winston right now is technically a FA, but at some point doesn't he have to become an active player under contract to one or the league teams again, or can he continue in this role as Prez of the NFL Players Association indefinitely while being a free agent ?

No, current and retired players are a part of the executive committee. I believe Charlie Batch, Drew Brees, Brian Dawkins, Scott Fujita, Matt Hasselbeck, Matt Light, Brandon Moore, Jeff Saturday, Brian Waters, and Benjamin Watson are the existing committee

Default Re: Eric Winston elected as President of the NFL Players Association

Eric Winston would like to sign with team before draft; LINK

Quote:
While he’s protecting the interests of the league’s players as a group, he’d like to be advancing the interests of one team as a member of their offensive line. Winston would like to return for another year in the desert, although he knows that might not be possible. Whether it is in Arizona or elsewhere, Winston would like to sign before the draft in May.

“I can’t say there have been super-positive talks or anything like that,” Winston said, via Dan Bickley of the Arizona Republic. “It doesn’t seem like anything is being done. I’d still love to come back to Arizona. I love the guys in the locker room, love the city, and I think the team will be really good with or without me. They’re ready to have a special run out there. At the same time, it is what it is. I’m looking to get on a team as soon as possible, hopefully before the draft. I know I still have some miles left on the tires, and I’m looking to burn them off.”

I'm not a big Winston fan...

He makes some good points but he's a little too indignant for my taste.

Winston likes to talk and share his opinions with the media.

I wouldn't be surprised if teams are a little gun shy about having him on their team. President of NFLPA + likes to talk to media...

It's like having Joan Rivers in your room watching you get dressed to go out somewhere.
