Eric Winston visited Chargers over the weekend

While the gates don’t open for unrestricted free agents until 4 p.m., guys who have been cut are free to talk to other teams.

And former Chiefs tackle Eric Winston has taken advantage.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, Winston visited the Chargers this weekend.

The Chargers have needs across the offensive line, and Winston would be an upgrade over Jeromey Clary, the incumbent with a $5.7 million cap number.

There were reports of interest from the Eagles and Texans shortly after Winston’s release, though no other reported visits. And in a few hours, the market will be full of other starting tackle options, which might make this the time to strike.

    Winston left SD without a contract after the coaching staff watched his game film. They concluded that is was “100% sickening” the way that Winston cannot pass block.

    I’m imagining Winston lined up beside Gaithier, lol.

    Only the Chargers. SMH.

    May I suggest that signing former Chiefs O-linemen is no way to improve your team. If we let go of them, they pretty much completely suck.

    Winston would only be a marginal upgrade over Clary. Also, I’m not sure what the cap hit would still be if Clary was cut. Think it’s somewhat substantial. Pass.
