Good news for Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis.

Not so good news for Matt Cassel.

Ah, well .... I think Texans released him early so he'd have a shot at biggest money out there. Hope he runs them up against the cap.

Hopefully Eric got enough of a raise to afford some ChapStick.

Former Missouri resident and forever a Chiefs fan so I've gotta say I'm happy for the Chiefs running game and glad for their QB that Eric is a RT and not covering the QBs "blind side".
Good luck in KC Eric, you will soon find that it's a great town with great football fans ! And no matter what Texans say, you cannot beat KC's BBQ.

Best of luck to the "gentle giant!" I remember meeting Eric at his first All Access, and he was so friendly and sweet. Got into a conversation with my granddaughter about pink jerseys. He wanted to buy one for his girlfriend. I hated to see him go cause I'm a sentimental old fool, but, life goes on in the NFL and I wish him nothing but success!!

Even on the day he signed with his new team, Winston admitted that it is still tough to leave the Texans.

It's so bittersweet," Winston said. "I've talked to a lot of old teammates I guess I have to say now. Chris (Myers), Mike (Brisiel) Joel (Dresseen), (Matt) Schaub. Some of the guys, they called me and it was such a nice show of support when I was released. It was really touching and it just goes to show you how close I think we all are and how we still are and how many great friends I made within the organization.

"It wasn't just players. There were so many people within the organization texting me and calling me, wishing me great luck. That was something that was really special and something I will never forget."

Geeezzzz, I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I absolutely HATE Rick Smith!! Our Oline was just beginning to gel due to the rapport and respect the guys had for each other. The Texans messed with a good thing, and now we've lost Brisiel as well. I just hope Butler, or whoever, has half the heart Eric has. YEA, I know it's a business, blah, blah, blah, but, when you have a team that CLICKS you just don't screw it up, esp if you want to win a championship! It takes guts, heart, soul, and love for each other, as well as talent. Not every player is gonna have it all, that's why they depend on each other. JMO

Looks like there may have been something more to the Texans not re-signing Winston besides money. Maybe, for the money, concern over his pass protection may have weighed in as heavy as they have with many of us.

Probably thought Myers was more valuable at that price than Winston was and couldn't keep both.
