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

    "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

    Wow this is shocking, we could potentially have the center up to the right tackle with 3 new starters next year

    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.

    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...

    That freaking blows.

    Due 5.5 million the next 2 years, guess it was too much.

    Yeah, that's a great pitch for Manning. Come here Peyton! We promise to replace our Center, RG and RT this offseason with great guys to protect your neck!!!

    If Mike and Chris aren't resigned tomorrow afternoon this is going to be a royal failboat.

    Way out of left field. We don't even have someone who can take his place, and Bah just used his 2nd round pick on Brandon Thompson

    John McClain just tweeted that he's shocked about Winston...... What!?!? Did his oh so reliable sources fail him? But he knows EVERYTHING about the operations of the Texans right?
