  • Chiefs cut RT Eric Winston

    Chiefs released RT Eric Winston.
    The move is surprising, but makes sense if the Chiefs follow through on drafting an offensive tackle at the No. 1 overall pick. Winston just signed a four-year, $22 million contract last offseason and graded out as top-nine right tackle in Pro Football Focus' 2012 ratings. The move saves $3.5 million in cap space. Winston will have plenty of options on the open market, attracting particular interest from zone-blocking teams. A reunion with the Texans would make a ton of sense after their 2012 right-tackle struggles. Miami, St. Louis, Baltimore, Washington, and Detroit all showed interest in Winston last offseason. Look for Kansas City to select Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel or Central Michigan's Eric Fisher if they can't trade out of the draft's top pick.
