Eric Winston Still Waiting For A Contract

Eric Winston and the San Diego Chargers talked about possible contract, but Winston walked away looking for a better deal. He still is searching for that deal today. He was trying to work a deal with the Dallas Cowboys, but that didn’t pan out. He is wandering around that free agency market trying to find a good deal.

Winston is looking for $3 million to $4 million a year on a short deal, but he hasn’t found that contract yet.

The Chargers likely have a contract around the $2 million/year in mind. If the Chargers sign Eric Winston to be their right tackle, then it would probably be followed by a Jeromey Clary release. The Chargers would be able to save $2.3 million with that release and help pay for the Winston deal.

The longer Winston is waiting for a contract, the better the chances are for him to become a Charger. The interest is there on the Chargers part, they just are looking for the numbers to line up.
