Report: FAs Eric Winston & Drayton Florence To Meet With Prospective Teams Next Week


Alex Marvez of Fox Sports reports that free agent RT Eric Winston and CB Drayton Florence are both expected to make visits with interested NFL teams next week.

Marvez’s source wouldn’t offer any specifics in regards to which teams happen to be interested Winston and Florence.

This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given that NFL teams will wait until after June 1 to start meeting with free agents as they will no longer count against the formula used to determine compensatory picks.

Winston, 30, had a hard time generating interest last year before eventually signing on with the Cardinals and it appears as though things have only gotten worse for him. He did accept the position as the NFLPA president, but it’s hard to say if this is what has impacted his market.

Last year, Winston appeared in all 16 games for Arizona, but graded out as the No. 69 tackle in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

Florence, 33, has generated no buzz whatsoever since the offseason got underway, so it seems likely that he’ll have to accept a veteran’s minimum salary and compete for a roster spot in training camp.

In 2013, Florence appeared in 14 games and totaled 26 tackles, two interceptions, and nine passes defensed. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 22 cornerback in the league.
