[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs addressed their most glaring need on offense Saturday by signing veteran tackle Eric Winston, and then added depth at quarterback by agreeing to terms with Brady Quinn.
Winston was in the fourth year of a $30 million, five-year deal when he was cut by the Houston Texas to save salary cap space. He instantly became the most coveted right tackle on the market, and Kansas City quickly swooped in to line up a visit.
Winston will take over at right tackle for Barry Richardson, who struggled much of last season before becoming a free agent.
Quinn was targeted to backup quarterback Matt Cassel, who will be coming back from a season-ending injury to his throwing hand.
The former first-round pick of the Browns started 12 games over three seasons in Cleveland, completing 52 percent of his passes for 1,902 yards and 10 touchdowns with nine interceptions. He didn’t play as a backup last season in Denver.
