Texans ask Eric Winston to buy a Reliant Stadium suite

The Texans might want to work on better communication between their front office and their ticket sales staff.

If they do, they’ll probably avoid sending recently cut players marketing come-ons to buy suites for the coming season at Reliant Stadium. That’s exactly what happened to Eric Winston, who got axed by the Texans earlier this month before landing in Kansas City as the Chiefs’ new right tackle. Winston shared a photo of the promotional materials on Twitter, quipping that “somebody didn’t get the memo.” It’s a safe bet that Winston’s going to pass on this offer.

As the Houston Chronicle points out, this was surely a marketing blitz targeting plenty of people in the Houston area as opposed to one with the very strange focus on players recently pink slipped by the team. That doesn’t make it any less humorous, however.

Winston agrees, although he says that his wife wasn’t quite so amused by the team’s inability to check their mailing list twice. Let’s hope they remembered to at least forward DeMeco Ryans‘ copy to Philadelphia.

    No clue why we let him go, KC is going tear it up on the ground

    He should probably get that suite anyways. He could make some money when the Texans have homefield throughout and he’s on the sidelines.

    Got 99 problems and Erick Winston aint one.

    Hopefully he helps in KC. If the chiefs stay healthy and Peyton plays back at a pre injury level maybe we will have some quality football to watch coming out of the AFC west.

    Texans letting go some of their stars, and their front office pulling stunts like this. No wonder Eric Winston left texans for BBQ w/ CHIEFS!

    GO CHIEFS!

    Meanwhile, the Vikings have asked Brad Childress to hand out Vikings t-shirts at a Minneapolis Walmart

    Houston let him go because he failed a physical… arthro on his ankle… supposedly its better now… guess we’ll see in the fall…

    If Ryans is successful here in Philly as the Mike LB, I’ll pay for his friggin’ suite at Reliant Stadium myself.

    LOL
    Gotta love when Twitter has its uses

    And ya KC did themselves a favor

    Winston was a sure top 5 pick in his draft year until he blew a ACL and he’s been a very good player since recovering.

    Shopping at Walmart is like shopping at Loro Piana on Rodeo Drive to the trailer trash vikequeef toads.

    He will watch us from a suite while we’re in the playoffs

    Chiefs O-line and RB crew is going to be physical as ever.

    Are they seriously asking players to buy suites? Seriously? Seriously?

    I can see a player wanting to get the suite for one game now and then when the folks and a sibling or two are in town, and I can see the team putting up notices in the meeting rooms about getting a suite for just such occasions if they want — but to actually solicit a player to buy suites is just wrong.

    Winston takes the most perverted photos on twitter , he looks like a real perv with his stache
