Seahawks add veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston

The Seahawks have made another move this morning, adding veteran right tackle Eric Winston to the roster.

Winston Tweeted the news himself:

Winston played in 2007-11 with Houston, spent 2012 with the Chiefs and last year with the Cardinals, where he started all 16 games.

But Winston became a free agent in March and had yet to sign, telling ESPN last Friday that there simply had yet to be an attractive enough situation.

“It’s more of the right situation not presenting itself,” Winston said in the above linked story. “Last year, I thought Arizona was a good spot for me and I think going forward I’m looking for that same kind of opportunity.”

Winston’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, also confirmed the deal:

One of Seattle’s biggest question marks is at right tackle, where second-year player Michael Bowie and rookie Justin Britt have been battling to replace Breno Giacomini, who signed in the off-season with the Jets. Bowie, however, is a nursing a shoulder injury suffered on the first day of training camp and also coming off of a spring in which coaches said he was not in optimum shape.

ProFootballFocus Tweeted this this morning about Winston’s 2013 season:

Those two games mentioned at the end came against the Seahawks, a 17-10 Arizona win at the CLink, and the 49ers, a game San Francisco won 23-20.

Winston will be one of two new faces on the Seattle roster today with the team also signing cornerback Terrell Thomas yesterday.

That means Seattle will  have to release two players prior to practice today.
