Whatever we would sign him for. He is a free agent so we don't have to pick up any of his old contact.

I don't think Strief would be interested on going back to the bench, he is good enough to start in this leauge.

Big man telling it how it is, and I honestly could not fault any word that he said during that video

He is correct in every aspect that people should be ashamed if they cheer when someone gets hurt, especially an injury that causes hardship for the rest of the athletes life such as brain injuries

Get that guy brought in, I like his fire and attitude

Let's see Mr. Magic figure that out - but not everyone can "get paid" when you've got so much money tied up in so few players...

Appreciated him tough'n it out through the groin injury, but get in better shape and play better if you don't want to get planted on the bench!

I don't know about that... it's hard to give him an honest evaluation since he's had injuries that've hampered his ability to perform on the field, but even still I think he has benefited from the strong interior of that O-line just like Bushrod.

Re: Want a rt, this guy just got released!!!! Get him now

Winston signed a four-year, $22 million deal last offseason, but he struggled early in the year and then ran afoul of some fans after he criticized a small percentage for cheering when embattled quarterback Matt Cassel sustained a head injury during a game.

Winston would have made $4.9 million in base salary this season. The move saves the Chiefs $6.5 million against the salary cap

Y! SPORTS

well we would need to get everyone and i mean everyone on board with reconstruction contracts, except Drew makes no sense to through him in there cap wise as we discussed.

Then we are done adding any more FA for the most part maybe a few million left over to play with but thats it

He would effect the draft big time as would the the esigning of bushrod. Which as most people know i am not crazy about but right now till numbers come out i really do not see an option out there that would not be a risk to Drew.

There is a "Report Post" button underneath everyone's avatar.
