    He has a roster bonus due at some point in 2013. I don't know when the deadline for those kick in(I'd assume sometime in September when the roster becomes final?), but he's due $1 million at some point this season.

    I've become a little concerned with our tackles in the last few days. Both have player options for 2014 and I don't think we extend both of them since they're both over 30 and their play has dipped.

    Draft Tiny Richardson next year to replace one of the tackles

    This is kinda interesting, considering that Bruce Matthews was Winston's OLine coach in Houston. We should have some pretty good insight as well as familiarity. Stewart could be on his way out

    This visit is not a good sign about Stewarts recovery. I don't think his play was that bad last year but compared to his usual play it did dip somewhat. They may see him as declining and look for a cheaper alternative. I hope Stew is back and returns to form cause him and Warmack would be fun to watch on the right side.

    Usually you don't bring in a player of Winston's caliber as due diligence unless you see yourself needing his services.

    Stewart right now is probably our weakest link on the OL, so bringing in Winston would make sense. Stewart has really slowed down, and if not for drafting Chance and signing Andy, I was all for moving Stewart to G (I personally thought he would be able to play the G position).

    Stew had some trouble last year.

    From everything I heard, Winston was effin' terrible with the Chiefs...

    Would rather get Idonije and keep Stewy.

    My parents are from Kansas City and I watch quite a few Chief games. There is a reason why the Chiefs cut him. He really isn't that great.

    I think it would mean the release of Stewart. Both of them are starting material, and Stewart is a worry coming off of the injury. Winston would be cheaper, too.
