I wouldn't go near that road yet. DeMeco started coming back to form later in the season. Let's see how the defensive captain plays this upcoming season when he is at least near completely recovered. He is just too smart and tough of a player to go down without a fight.

There may be more moves coming that just haven't been officially announced yet. Eric Winston broke the news on his twitter account.

Meco stepped up his game in the last half of the season and the dude was thumping. It would be great if we could keep him. I just don't know if the money is available to get it done.

I would actually be okay with that. Much more so than this. Winston hasn't missed a game in 5 years.

He's a TE so he's safe.

Winston was a mauler in the run game but his pass pro could be suspect at times, maybe there is an upgrade coming? Gotta lock down Myers and Briesel for sure now.

Winston gave up 7.5 sacks this year (33 total sacks).
He gave up 9 sacks last year (32 total).

And this is worth $5.5m each of the next 2 seasons...why?

according to Lance Zierlein the Texans seemed to be very interested in Mitchell Schwartz from Cal at the Senior Bowl. Also has the same agent as Foster too

I don't want a rookie tackle starting on a team with Superbowl aspirations.

I could've stomached cutting Demeco before this.

He was far more overpaid than Winston. Plus his backup, Sharpton, had looked decent. Meanwhile, we have no replacement for EW.

Edit: NVM, I forgot that Butler was on IR, I thought he was released.

I feel slightly better about this now.

No worries, peeps. Rashad Butler has great feet and an unbelievable wingspan who can play both sides of the line. When Duane Brown was out Butler got progressively better on such short notice. With a full off season Butler will be just fine. He knows the offensive line inside and out.

The only way you worry now is if the Texans don't work the deals with Meyers and Brisel.

Texans saved $4.5 million in salary cap space by releasing Eric Winston. They've restructured Andre Johnson to free up more dollars.

Default Re: Eric Winston released?????

So, who do we make cap space for? I thought we should`ve been able to sign Myers and Briesel without any more major cuts (after AJ restructured his contract - perhaps 1 or 2 more moves like this, but we should have at least a little money) - is this our final push for Mario? Or are we actually eying some FA that didn`t play for the Texans last season?

I am kinda shocked about Winston - yeah he was overrated and overpayed, but he was an integral part of the best O-Line in Texans history. Now we`ll have to mix it up some and that will be... interesting. Butler might be able to step in but we probably need to draft an OT now in round 2-4. So this move means: more money more problems...

The real question is: why isn`t Jacoby cut yet. He is overpayed worse than Winston was and plays a position we are most definetly try to upgrade this offseason - all the while we still have AJ, KW and some young guys. We can`t play all our WRs and Jacoby with his big contract should be the logical choice out.

Default Re: Eric Winston released?????

Winston blew pass blocks every game, like some are saying in this thread, and his only great strength was run blocking. Leinart got drilled into the Jax turf because Winston's man flew by Winston almost untouched...Caveman got a paw on him, but it was like slapping at the guy as he went by him. I remember it vividly as CBS replayed the play Leinart was injured on.

And you know what? He WAS too concerned about his broadcasting career. Who broke the news of him being cut? He did. He couldn't even wait until it was officially released, and it looks like he's playing a victim card even if he didn't intend to. Other players might be getting cut, too, but their agent might be instructing them to not say anything until it's official or the time comes to do so. In short: Staying classy in the midst of tough times.

Winston will land somewhere. He'll have a new radio gig. He'll be fine.
