    Twitter Winston to Miami or Chiefs

    #Chiefs and #Dolphins are still in the mix but no signing is imminent with either team. Story coming asap at @FOXSports.com

    I would not be surprised to see another team (i.e. Ravens) jump in the mix if he lowers his asking price a bit.

    - Hall of Fame Safety Rod Woodson on Dan Marino playing in today's NFL:
    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."
    "If he played with these rules, he'd throw for 100,000 yards."

    There would need to be some salary dumping or restructuring to add both Winston and Flynn.

    I think he will land with the chiefs, they have $40 million in cap space and Winston is looking to become the highest paid RT in football, IDK how were gonna pull that off with only $5 million left in cap space and we still have to potentially sign flynn.

    I read the chiefs were bringing in marcus mcneil so if its really only between us and them it would look like they are exploring other options at RT. However, i dont know with what money we are going to sign winston with.

    1) Ryan Shazier LB
    2) Tre Mason RB
    3) Joe Bitonio OT/OG
    4) Billy Turner OT
    5) Trai Turner OG
    6) Gabe Ikard OC/OG

    Would be nice: hopefully he'll give our low-balling brainiacs the hometown (UofM) discount if KC offered more.

    he reportedly wants 10 million a year. For reference. Jake who when healthy is a top 3 OT, is getting just over 11 million. Joe Thomas only gets 10.5 million. Now that's just base salary)

    He wants to be the highest paid OT in the league. David Stewart (one of the top RTs in the league) Has a base salary of 5 million and with all incentives and bonuses makes over 6 million.

    In short, Winston wants to be paid like an elite LT. And he's not getting that type of money. Rumors are KC was willing to make him the highest paid RT, but not at 10 mill a year.
