You have no idea how badly I want this update to be that Eric Winston has signed with KC. Unfortunately, we can’t say that YET. However, there is good news. After spending all day in KC (including a lunch at Jack Stack that caused him to say “Whoa. That was impressive”) Adam Teicher is reporting via twitter (@adamteicher):
Can update the Eric Winston situation. He’s still in KC. Looks like he will stay another nite. #Chiefs could still sign him tonite or Sat.
So hopefully we will get word any time that Winston has signed. I can’t imagine he’d stay in town a day and a half if they weren’t working something out. It’s like we’ve got our own little Mario Williams situation going on here.
The other interesting news to come out this evening comes from Fox’s Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez):
#Chiefs set to host Brady Quinn on a free agent visit, @FOXSports.com has learned. Story being posted asap.
So the Chiefs are finally bringing in a possible #2 QB. Not exactly the type of guy that will likely beat out Cassel like many were hoping for. What do you think Addicts?
UPDATE: Marvez is now reporting that Winston has cancelled his visit to St. Louis and doesn’t plan to reschedule. That sounds good right? The next part does not sound encouraging.
Winston met Thursday and Friday with the Kansas City Chiefs but a signing isn’t imminent. Winston began his tour Wednesday by meeting with the Miami Dolphins.
Winston is expected to resume taking free-agent visits again soon. The Baltimore Ravens are another strong bidder for his services, a source said.
