Default Texans releasing Eric Winston?

via his twitter

https://twitter.com/#!/ericwinston

"Unfortunately I have bad news. The Texans have decided to release me today. Although it is a surprise, I have nothing but positive memories"

"And great relationships that I have built over the years. While my future seems uncertain, I am confident I will land on my feet."

"Let me say thank you to Mr. McNair and the whole Texan organization. They have had big role in the player and person I have become."

"And last but not least to my fans and teammates. You guys are the absolute best! I will miss all of you more than you know."

Wow i am absolutely shocked

As much as I like Winston and what he's meant to the franchise I think we can improve at the position. And if it's a little cheaper to do it then he has to go. Guys in the league understand that at the end of the day its a business. Or at least that's what it should be.

Eric Winston is on the way out in Houston.

Winston, an offensive tackle who has started all 16 games for five straight seasons, wrote on Twitter on Monday evening that the Texans informed him they’re letting him go.

We noted a week ago that Winston’s $5.5 million base salary made him a candidate to be asked to take a pay cut or restructure his contract, but the Texans’ decision to release him today still comes as a surprise. It was also clearly a surprise to Winston.

“Unfortunately I have bad news,” Winston wrote. “The Texans have decided to release me today. Although it is a surprise, I have nothing but positive memories and great relationships that I have built over the years. While my future seems uncertain, I am confident I will land on my feet. Let me say thank you to Mr. McNair and the whole Texan organization. They have had big role in the player and person I have become. And last but not least to my fans and teammates. You guys are the absolute best! I will miss all of you more than you know.”

Now Winston becomes an unrestricted free agent, joining Levi Brown as the second starting offensive tackle to join the free agent market today.

No way... the dude was overrated by many, but he was a solid, solid starter for this team at RT.

Could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure that one of the reasons we'll be replacing our RT is to sure up the center, guard position...
