KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs made another move in their roster overhaul under new leadership Wednesday night, releasing right tackle Eric Winston after only one season.
The team had not announced the move, but Winston said on Twitter: ``Just wanted to confirm that I have been released.'' Winston went on to say that although he had a difficult season, ``I wouldn't trade the relationships I made in KC and the overall experience I had for anything.''
Winston signed a four-year, $22 million deal last offseason, but he struggled early in the year and then ran afoul of some fans after he criticized a small percentage for cheering when embattled quarterback Matt Cassel sustained a head injury during a game.
Winston would have made $4.9 million in base salary this season. The move saves the Chiefs $6.5 million against the salary cap.
