Veteran RT Eric Winston recently mentioned that he is hoping to sign with a new team before the NFL Draft after finding very little interest in the first three weeks of free agency.
“I can’t say there have been super-positive talks or anything like that,” said Winston, via the Arizona Republic. “It doesn’t seem like anything is being done. I’d still love to come back to Arizona. I love the guys in the locker room, love the city, and I think the team will be really good with or without me. They’re ready to have a special run out there.
“At the same time, it is what it is. I’m looking to get on a team as soon as possible, hopefully before the draft. I know I still have some miles left on the tires, and I’m looking to burn them off.”
Winston, 30, was recently elected president of the NFL Players Association, which has some wondering if his new title could be preventing him from signing on with a new team.
Last year, Winston agreed to terms with the Cardinals on a one-year contract after being released by the Chiefs. He appeared in all 16 games for Arizona, but graded out as the No. 69 tackle in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.
