Here’s a look at some of the days NFL transactions.
Texans OT Eric Winston announced on Twitter that the team has decided to release him.
Winston was set to make $5.5 million for the 2012 season despite being ranked by Pro Football Focus as the #8 best offensive tackle last season. He could very well end up in our Top 50 Free Agents list that will be updated later tonight.
The 36-year-old fullback played with the Redskins for eleven of his twelve seasons in the NFL. It’s hard to assume that he’ll draw a ton of interest on the open market.
This move was reported to be coming weeks ago. Atogwe was set to make $3.4 million salary for 2012 season and releasing will not create any “dead money” for the team so it makes sense in that regard.
What’s interesting is that Atogwe signed with the team a little over a year ago but ultimately wasn’t able to be a difference maker for them.
FOXSports.com reports that a league source has informed them that the Vikings have signed QB Sage Rosenfels.
The report mentions that he’s expected to compete for the backup quarterback position with Joe Webb but it would defintaly be surprising to see him outplay Webb.
Michael Gehlken reports that the Chargers have tendered exclusive rights free agents WR Richard Goodman and LS Mike Windt.
Gordon did play in all 16 games for the Chiefs last season so he should provide some extra depth for their defensive line.
Brad Biggs reports that the Rams have released CB Ron Bartell.
This will pay him $1.93 million for the 2012 season.
