The Arizona Cardinals and free agent offensive tackle Eric Winston are closing in on a contract that will keep Winston in the desert for the 2013 NFL Season.

Winston, who this past free agent signing period was a heavy favorite to sign first at the free agent tackle market. Winston was linked with the San Diego Chargers, Tennessee Titans and the Arizona Cardinals quietly came in and quietly got a deal done with Winston.

Eric Winston came into the league in 2006 after spending his College career at The University of Miami. Winston was drafted by the Houston Texans in the 2006 NFL Draft in the 3rd Round 66th overall.

Winston had a great showing throughout his time with the Texans until 2012 where the team released him. Winston started 103 of 108 games for the Texans.

In 2012 Eric Winston was given another shot but this time it was with the Kansas City Chiefs. Winston came into the Chiefs spotlight after displaying harsh words to the Kansas City fans after then Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel became injured and the Chiefs fans cheered. Winston went on to say that it was "100% sickening". Winston would later be released from the Chiefs on March 6th, 2013.

Winston will now be with his 3rd team in his NFL career. Upon joining the Arizona Cardinals it seems likely that Winston will be named the Arizona Cardinals starting right tackle to start the 2013 NFL Season against the St. Louis Rams.
