    very puzzling move! are they trying to clear cap room to re-sign Williams?

    Texans informed RT Eric Winston of his release.

    The shocking move clears $5.5 million in base salary. Winston hasn't missed a start since his 2006 rookie season, and has been a key cog in the Texans' highly productive zone-blocking scheme. Despite the release, Winston won't have trouble exceeding what the Texans were going to pay him on an incredibly thin offensive tackle market. Only 28 years old, Winston should appeal to other zone-blocking clubs like the Redskins. Pro Football Focus graded Winston as a top-six right tackle last season. He was 11th overall in PFF's rankings.

    I read earlier today that the owner of the Texans wants to resign Mario Williams, and that was the reason Winston was let go. :frusty:

    Williams might sign with the Bills. Supposedly Buffalo has the most cap room for a signing. I know it's professional football but why would have a player want to leave a team that is on the cusp of being a potential league champion. Also the Bills are quite a few pieces away from being a league champion.
