After being surprisingly cut after the 2011 season by the Texans and then after the 2012 season by the Chiefs, Eric Winston won’t be cut after the 2013 season by the Cardinals. That’s because Winston will sign only a one-year deal with the Cardinals.
PFT has confirmed that Winston will travel to Arizona today, sign the deal, and join the team.
Winston instantly improves an offensive line that is not good. He’ll help block for veteran newcomers Rashard Mendenhall and Carson Palmer as a team that went to the Super Bowl only five years ago tries desperately to remain within shouting distance of the 49ers, Seahawks, and Rams in the NFC West.
First-round pick Jonathan Cooper also will improve the offensive line, if/when he signs his rookie deal.
Winston made several visits after being cut earlier in the offseason, and the Cardinals were a late arrival on the scene.
