Texans Give RT Eric Winston a Five-Year Extension

The Texans on the eve of their opener in Pittsburgh, have extended the contract of right tackle Eric Winston.  ESPN is reporting the deal is for five years at $30 mil, with $10 mil in guarantees.  “We are pleased that we were able to agree to terms and sign Eric to this extension,” Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “This is consistent with our philosophy of building our football team through the draft and rewarding and retaining our good, young players.”  He was a third round pick back in 2006 out of Miami.  He played in seven games his rookie season in 2006, and played all last season.

    Why did they do that!!! He should have protected Schaub on the second possesion of the ball last play. He tried a block, it didn’t work so then he took a stroll.. Pickup your feet and try again.
