Arizona Cardinals reportedly close to signing tackle Eric Winston, have made offer to John Abraham

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

So the team is not confident in the tackle situation

Well, it apparently is true that the Arizona Cardinals are not completely confident with the situation with their tackles on the offensive line. After reports that the coaching staff was not pleased with Levi Brown in his offseason work and that they were having internal discussions about looking for more tackle help, now it is reportedly true.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Cardinals are close to signing veteran tackle Eric Winston, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason. The deal could be done in the next 24 hours and would reportedly be a one-year deal.

When Winston was released by Kansas City, he believed it was because of "philosophical reasons." He made some noise last season among fans and the media when he said it was "sickening" when Chiefs fans cheered when quarterback Matt Cassel was injured and had to leave a game.

Winston has played seven seasons in the league, last year with the Chiefs and the other seasons previous with the Houston Texans. He has started 103 of the 108 games he has played.

Similarly, Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Cards also have an offer on the table to John Abraham, who visited the team on Wednesday.

Abraham, who will be entering his 14th NFL season, has amassed 122 career sacks, including 10 last season.

The addition of both would create more competition on the offensive line and give the defense some more potential pass rushing punch.

We will keep you posted.
