Eric Winston rumors: Offensive tackle visits Tennessee

The Tennessee Titans are the latest team to show interest in Eric Winston, will they be willing to meet his reported contract demands?


The Titans have made significant upgrades to their offensive line this offseason, but Tennessee may not be done yet, as they hosted free agent Eric Winston for a visit on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Winston has drawn considerable interest since being released by Kansas City, but has yet to find a team willing to pay him the $3-4 million per season he's reportedly seeking. Winston is reportedly also seeking a multi-year deal and a contract with guaranteed money, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

Tennessee has already made considerable additions to its offensive line. The Titans signed guard Andy Levitre to open free agency, then drafted guard Chance Warmack with the No. 10 pick. Its unknown where Winston would fit along the line in Tennessee as the Titans have Michael Roos and David Stewart returning as starting tackles. Stewart started 12 games at right tackle last season, before missing the end of the season due to a broken leg. He's scheduled to earn $6 million next season according to Spotrac, so he could be a candidate for release if the Titans sign Winston.

In addition to his visit with Tennessee, Winston has also drawn interest from the Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns and others. He was considered to be one of the top right tackles in the NFL as recently as two seasons ago and should be a solid starter wherever he lands in 2013.
