In somewhat of a surprise move, the Chiefs Wednesday released veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston.
Winston wrote on Twitter, “Just wanted to confirm that I have been released. Even though it was an incredibly tough year on and off the field last year, I wouldn’t trade the relationships I made in KC and the overall experience I had for anything. It was an honor to be a Chief.”
Winston was signed by the Chiefs last year after he was released by the Texans. The tackle came to the Chiefs with a hefty four-year, $22 million deal last year. Winston received only $9.3 million over one season.
