Yea, why would they cut Winston before Jones, or even Walter for that matter. ****, we could have moved him inside to guard and let his big ass run block. I'm confused. Very very interesting time of the year. This one definitely came out of left field.

Well this means we will get it done with Myers. We better.

Hope we can get Mario back, that way we can tackle our depth on offense in the draft and not worry too much about another pass rusher.

Like someone previously mentioned, maybe Jones and others have been cut be its not been announced yet.

Big news.

Not sure how I feel about it. Winston was overrated overall but still a damn fine player.

We must get Myers, Brisiel, AND draft OL now.

I hate to see him go, but I think he can be replaced. I never really noticed how he could get beat by a really fast pass rush defense until this season. Really liked the guys intensity on the sidelines though.

Eric Winston was not a good football player and I've been wanting to see a replacement there for years.

I'm surprised as hell about this move, but not sad in the least.

He certainly had some flaws but he was a very good run blocker.

meyers was coming back..this move imo was not made for him, they had cap space for him.....this move was made to try to get mario back, no doubt in my mind.

winston was definitely replaceable though.

For an OT that's not good.

Butler is good, I was impressed when he came in when I think it was Brown was injured and played well. The thing that gets me is that Butler ruptured his triceps and was put on IR last year, sounds kind of nasty. Also, I believe that Butler will be a UFA after next season but don't quote me on that. They must think highly of Newton too. Well, they better have Myers and Brisiel signed by 3 tomorrow. Never a dull moment.

by resigning arian & releasing winston & failing to sign any of the OL guys as of right now, i can see what the FO is thinking. Alot of our run game success rests with #23. He damn sure made those guys look better than what they really are. They saying they feel arian is the catalyst & the most valuable piece to the puzzle & behind him is Meyers & Brown...everyone else is fair game to be replaced.

& if you go back & watch games...it bears out. We primarily ran left.....to brown's side. We primarily play-actioned to the left...brown's side. I honestly can't think of any major play we made to winston's side except for arian's TD run in the steelers game where he bent it back right.........and that had little to do with Winston; it was all Foster.

I mostly agree with this with the exception of accepting that he was very good run blocking most of the time. Pass protection was an issue and it seemed like once a week this season I held my breath while he screwed the pooch trying to pass protect. Maybe it just looked so bad because Brown was having such a good year.

I think it's hard to make a case that Winston's position couldn't be upgraded or at the very least restocked for less money. He just wasn't that good. I think Butler can fill that position easily. LT is a reach for him but RT is where he came from (oddly enough Winston was a LT at Miami when Butler was starting at RT there).

I think they wouldn't have released him if they didn't think that they could survive it.

I've been on record a long time with not being a fan of Eric's. I think it was the smart move, trying to keep Meyers.

The RT position does worry me with this move, which is why I was willing to put up with him.

Hmmmm ... tomorrow should be very interesting!
