Chiefs Sign Free Agent OT Eric Winston


March 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to contracts with veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston and quarterback Brady Quinn on Saturday. Winston was released by the Houston Texas on Monday in a surprising move that saved the team about $4.5 million against the salary cap. He had started every game he played in over the past five seasons at right tackle.  Winston will also play on the right side for the Chiefs. He takes over for Barry Richardson, who became a free agent after struggling much of last season.  Quinn hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game since 2009 with Cleveland. He was a backup with Denver last season. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli called upgrading the offensive line a priority this offseason.

Adrian Ritchie added 15 for the Phoenix (31-1), who’ll take on second-seeded Kentucky in the second round Monday night. Green Bay blitzed through the Cyclones in their own gym, running out to a 42-23 halftime lead and barely looking back. Iowa State got within 10 with 3:01 left, but the Phoenix held on to reach the round of 32 for the third year in a row.  Hallie Christofferson led five in double figures with 12 points for Iowa State (18-13), which committed 30 turnovers and lost its NCAA tournament opener for the second straight year.

The Wildcats (34-2) move on to South Regional semifinals in Atlanta and will face fourth-seeded Indiana on Friday.
