Eagles Pursuing Former Chiefs Right Tackle, Eric Winston

NFL: Preseason-Kansas City Chiefs at Green Bay PackersRight now, there’s a decent chance that the Eagles will select an offensive tackle in the first round, but that could change if they’re able to sign former Kansas City offensive tackle Eric Winston, whom the Chiefs released on Wednesday.  The move was reportedly done to save cap money because releasing Winston will take $6.5 million dollars off the Chiefs salary cap.

Winston is considered a good tackle especially as a run blocker, which is what the Eagles will likely major in on the offensive side of the ball.  The former Miami Hurricane was drafted in 2006 by the Houston Texans.  The Texans ran the ball behind a zone blocking scheme which is expected to be He’s 6’7″ 302 pounds and only 29 years old.

Signing Winston would allow the Birds to slide Todd Herremans back to the guard position where he is most comfortable and it would allow them to address their defensive needs in the first round.

The fact that the Birds are interested in signing Winston tells me that they want to draft a defensive player in the first round, but they’ll probably draft one of those tackles if they can’t add a good one through free agency.

i am actually starting to like this idea. i just always assumed drafting a stalwart O.lineman would be what we do but an impact defensive player would be nice– can’t really think of the last defensive impact player we had— holy crap i think it was dawkins… ugh that seems so long ago! – anyway it makes us ‘old’ on the o.line with an injured and aging peters (i’m not convinced he can play anymore) and winston is 29, herremans isn’t young. anyway the read option runs that zone stuf… so who knows.

Please happen! It would allow them to get Jordan or Floyd if they are there at 4. If both a taken, then another team would probably want to trade up for either Fisher or Joekel and get several good picks. I’de like to see the front 7 get some impact players before using pick on the CB, although he looks to be a real player.

jp, Jordan is NOT a #4 pick, & Floyd doesn’t fit our 3-4 scheme. We already have a 3 technique 3-4 DE in Cox. Floyd is too small, to be a NT & ain’t a 5 technique 3-4 DE to play opposite Cox. We’d virtually be wasting, his playmaking abilities as a 5 technique 3-4 DE. I love the kid, but he don’t fit, unless you want to trade Cox? That would be, flat out RETARDED!

Because, he himself said it, when he was interviewed on Mike & Ike. He said, he’s better & would rather be a 3 technique. I myself, would still draft him, & play him there, because he is built like a 5 technique 3-4, DE. But his talents would hindered, IMHO, as a 5 technique 3-4, DE. He’d be a monster 4-3 DT, as similar to, & maybe even better than Cox was, last year. Can he play there? I believe so, & would do it, because I love the kid, & he, & my Nephew hung, in the same circles, & made it out, so I have soft spot for the kid, but I don’t know if his skills will flourish, in a 3-4.
A front 3, of Cox-Knighton/Brandon Williams-Floyd, does look nice though, for the next 5+ years! LOL!

i didn’t know the Houston Texans were interested in reacquiring him, I hope they achieve their goal. I would rather the Eagles select an OT with #4 selection in the draft and target Andy Levitre in FA.
I enjoy kicking the Eagles while they are down as much as you seem to like to cheer for them when they are up. I also invest by shorting the stock market, it is much easier for me to find losers than winners. Different strokes for different folks.

absolutely I didn’t watch one single KC Chiefs game last year— I am clueless but still on even par with Jeff & Howie who are both equally clueless
the last time I paid Eric Winston any mind was the year he was drafted in 2006 when there was speculation the Eagles would use their #1 selection on Winston Justice.( the prognosticators had Eric Winston in the top five OT that year) I didn’t like him then either but cluelessly thought the Eagles got a steal in Winston Justice with a 2nd round pick. I was equally naive when the media & Jeff Lurie’s bums convinced me that Brodrick Bunkley was a much better fit for the Eagle Defense than Haloti Ngata. Not any more — Jeff is a dingbat and his little companion is too!

IMHO, they need to sign a OT in FA & draft 1 high. Peters in no way, is a given to be penciled in. Herremans & Mathis should be fine at OG. for a year. I’d go after Schwenke, later in the rounds, to give Kelce a run for his $$$$, also. They HAVE to take the approach, of getting 1 & 1, in FA, & also in the draft. Same goes for CB & Safety. 1 & 1 is the way to go. Can’t build this team solely on the draft, nor FA. Give me Winston, Quin, & Sean Smith in FA, & draft Fisher, Cyprian & Rhodes in the draft. Use Maclin, Peters, & Cole as trade assets, for more picks! They have to balance their approach, this off-season, & have no choice, but to spend the shekels, that they hoarded from last year.

I say go after Barrett Jones for OT later in the rounds unless they go after fisher right off the bat.
Alot of people are commending the Chiefs as most should but fast paced decisions dont always pan out, Chip is being maticulous and deciding the right fit an the right players to help us and also want to play and win.

I do think the chiefs will succeed but this is andy reid we are talking about i see chip as the next Jimmy Johnson( ie. Dallas) but you dont have to take my word for it.

Pip, Jones is a mostly a Guard/Center, not a OT. He doesn’t have the footwork. He only played 10 games at T. 26 at RG, & 14 at C. He is built & is better suited, to be inside. No more freaking square pegs, in round holes!

Winston was a Salary Cap issue with the Texans and was DeMeco Ryans
last Off-Season.. He was playing at a Pro-Bowl Level for the Texans ..
Now last year for the Chiefs, he struggled a bit as their entire Team did when you go 2-14.. Similar to the Eagles in 2013, name one player who had a good season on 4-12 Teams.. Chiefs released him due to COntract and the fact they will most likely Draft OT Joeckel to replace him..
Similar to the Eagles situation who release Cullen Jenkins with a high salary and replace him with a younger,cheaper players…

its sad when fans are salivating over any decent player that gets released…. haha….what has happened to the Eagles….

at #4, best player on the defensive side available, regardless of scheme…..good coaching puts the player in the position to be successful, DCAR – you dont pass on a future all pro like Floyd at #4 because he doesnt fit…the kid played 3-4 DE at Florida and did well…. move him all over the line and create mismatches…. NFL defenses play in the nickel a majority of the time now anyway so he would play DT inside most of the time… dont buy the fit BS….

jott, our salivating is warranted, & we should take any upgrade, anyway we can. Also, I didn’t say pass on Floyd, read my posts. He played 3 technique 3-4, DE, not 5 technique 3-4, DE. Cox is our 3 technique 3-4, DE. Just saying, but I’d still take him. A combination of Cox, Thornton, Floyd & possibly FA Jean-Francois, would be a great rotating 4some!

The Eagles need SAM, NT, 2 S and 2 CB. I have been saying that we need a RT in FA because Herremans sucks at RT. He needs to play G. So getting a RG like Warmack still leaves a hole at RT. If you sign Winston and move Herremans, problem solved. O line is our top priority because there is no helping that defense right now. So we better at least be able to try to out score people and control the clock. Can’t do that with a so-so O line and a bum protecting the blind side.
Starting to warm up to the idea of Jordan. I know he is a project but the whole defense is. So he will be ready to dominate in three years when we have the other players we need. Right now I would get RT, S and Sean Smith in FA. Then we can draft Jordan as SAM and start looking for other CB and S as well as NT after that. 3-4 DE is not a high priority. That is a blue collar job and those guys are a dime a dozen. Cox will be a special one so the other guy just needs to eat space and do his job. You can find that in the 5-7 round area or a cheap FA next year. But I think Thornton might be very good in that role. He is tall and over 300. I am so glad we will have DL all over 6’4″ next year. Tired of these short DLs.

You can say all you want about winning now, but Kelly realisitically has a four year plan. He wants to win the SB by 2016. With that in mind, you only sign guys that will be an intricate part of the 2016 team. Therefore, you would not sign a 32 yo place holder. You sign the guy who can be the FS in 2016, bot the safety for now. That’s the difference between rebuild and “win-now.”

Last Year, a certain buddy of mine insisted that Kelechi Osemele, didn’t fit our blocking scheme, and he shouldn’t be drafted by the Eagles. He too was thought to be an OT, and when the Ravens played the pre-season, it became apparent that he would be best suited as a Guard – What GMCliff said should be the position for him on the Eagles – started at that position right on into the SuperBowl.

Andre Smith, would be best served at Guard, not OT, and DJ Fluker, is this years Andre Smith in the draft, who also would be best served as a Guard.

It doesn’t shock me he’s had his troubles handling the RT position, he shouldn’t be played there. His best attribute, is as a Runblocker, and being physical, – AND HE ISN’T SOFT PAUL- at the line of scrimmage – GUARD

Cliff Avril is in a stand still with detriot and reports out there is that Cliff wouldn’t mind playing 3-4 now keep in mind eagles may play that scheme or 4-3 under which is loosely based off of the former scheme up top. Keep and eye on this move.

I dont see eagles going after D. Jordan they will go DB 1st or OT in the first S is the third option and or OLB (J. Jones) NT will be had in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. the rest is BPA and for depth.

But I think someone else got burned on that last one. Champ gave up a bomb TD in the first half. But I would have remembered if he did it again. Brady would have another ring right now if not for that play. I know its not popular around here but the Pats are my second team and I am a big Brady fan.

But in all seriousness i read i think through profootballtalk that Louis Delmas Safety from Detroit was expecing contract talks the last 2 months the club doesn’t seem to budge so he may be a possible FA has had injuries but has been solid none the less and will be turning 26 this year at some point. Yay or Nay

CT- we are not going to be able to sign a FA class of 21 year olds this year. Plus…. in todays NFL it does not have to take 5 years to rebuild. 2-3 years to turn things around is the norm… heck…. even the Vikings and Colts did it in 1. IF…… IF…… IF….. they land a few kep players and have a good draft AND…. if last years draft keeps progressing…. we COULD… COULD… COULD….. be on the upswing faster than we think.

this is not me thinking more of this team than is. They were lucky to win 4 games last year… but who knows what an NFL DC and a run game can do.

The Eagles should sign this OT and two safeties in FA. That allows them to go after impact defensive players in the draft. Dion Jordan or Dee Milner at the 4th pick. Or better yet trade down and get an additional late 1st, early 2nd if they can find a trading partner. So many holes to fill, you have to at least address some positions in FA. Lower price positions like S and TE make sense here.

Sign Winston, Quin, Cox, Jean-Francois, trade down to get Buffalos #8 & #41. Trade Maclin to Jets for #39. Trade Cole to Ten for #104.
Draft-
#8- LT Lane Johnson
#35- CB Xavier Rhodes/ Jonathan Banks
#39- OG Larry Warford
#41- ROLB Alex Okafor
#67- SS Jonathan Cyprian
#98- WR Justin Hunter/ Robert Woods
#104- NT Brandon Williams
5-7 line & secondary depth. Bing-Bang-Boom! Good off season

DCar, what players are you assuming are off the board at 8? Lane Johnson at 8 seems like a reach when we have so many holes on defense. I’d like Jordan, Ansah, Milliner, etc if they are there at 8 but perhaps you’re assuming they are already off the board?

Johnson is a top 10 pick, how is it a reach? If you read my post, I filled the defensive holes, with FA signings & the rest of the drart, I forgot to include my boy, NT Terrance Knighton, too.

Like it DCAr
OT lane Johnson is probably the best fit at OT for Kelly’s fast paces offense as he is the most “athletic OT” in this Draft per most Observors
I do believe that Rhodes & Crypien go sooner than u have listed but like all these players but am not that high on LB Alex Okafor, though he has big time talent but his motor and strength are ??
Good Job

Dcar — you have to figure out how to get a Center in your off-season moves too. Dallas Reynolds was top 3 reasons the Eagles only had 4 wins.

e0, Kelce hopefully heals, & draft Schwenke/Frederick/Quessenberry/Cave/Freeman/Holmes, in rounds 5-7. Interior O-line, is deep this year, & Centers aren’t expected to go high.

Reynolds, will be a BU. Don’t worry. What you should be worrying about, is Stoudland thinking he can save Watkins, & bringing him back!

dman He is legit! That would be a great signing if they can get him.

Give me Winston, Goldson, a young corner now that there are a ton to choose from and go steal Danario Alexander from the Chargers (RFA but Would not lose a draft pick if they signed him) some much needed size at receiver. Throw in an upgrade at tight end (Bennett ) but that is probably asking for more than they will actually do in free agency.

I believe they are doing much of this. Goldson, winston, young corner and and perhaps even an older pass rusher. Lots of those lying around too.

The Philadelphia Inquirer passes along a rumor that Eagles GM Howie Roseman is “crunching numbers” and “putting together an offer” to acquire Darrelle Revis.
It would make plenty of sense. The Eagles are sickly thin at the cornerback position with the impending and inevitable departures of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and they have a boat load of cap space in order to meet Revis’ salary demands. Beat writer Jeff McLane speculates Philly could package the No. 35 overall pick with a future pick to entice the Jets. New York is reportedly “determined” to trade Revis prior the the draft.

IMO I love revis talent but his injury history especially the hammy makes me nervous as does his annual crying about his contract. If he could stay healthy this would be a great fit. Revis if he plays would take away Pierre garçon, Dez Bryant, Cruz… If eagles got him and goldston they would be pretty damn good.

No Revis, coming off major Injury, best years are behind him and will be
Awful expensive at 29 Years old.. Makes no sense in throwing in a ton of $$$ for 1 Player who has ? About his Health
GM Roseman sounds like he’s following the 76ers Plan of putting most of your eggs in 1 Basket and we all know how that has played out
Stay away from Revis, Welker, James Harrison, Ed Reed, Charles Woodson
Jake Long, John Abraham, Chris Gamble and Free-Agents who are close or over 30 and history of Injuries ..
Build the zfranchise the right way and for the long-Term
Get younger Players with the opportunity to Start who are hungry, healthy
And have upside, not Re-tread Overpriced Pkayers for they have done this the last couple of off-seasons with Terrible Results and a lack of energy and passion..

Revis is 27 dude and when healthy has a proven track record of eliminating teams #1 wr. Depending on the price he could be a great addition the best cb in the nfl in his prime years.

Over used phrase of 2012-“moving parts”.

Hes a baller and we need a few of those.
