Chargers interested in Eric Winston
By Bill Williamson
When the Kansas City Chiefs cut right tackle Eric Winston last week, the San Diego Chargers seemed like a natural fit for him.
The Chargers apparently agree. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Winston visited San Diego over the weekend. If signed, he would replace Jeromey Clary.
Winston would certainly be an upgrade over Clary. The Chargers are making major changes on the offensive line and have more pressing needs at left tackle and at guard.
But adding Winston would help. The Chargers are interested in adding some zone-blocking schemes and Winston is adept in the scheme.
He is also a popular player in the locker room and he’d be a strong positive influence on San Diego. It will be interesting to see if this visit leads to anything.
Meanwhile, U-T San Diego reports the Chargers are also interested in Jacksonville cornerback Derrick Cox. The Chargers are expected to be players for cornerbacks in free agency.
