The Arizona Cardinals were expected to get it done, and it has happened. The team and veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract and he will sign that deal today, which is the first day of training camp for veterans.
As tweeted by Kent Somers, the deal is much like the other veteran free agents the team signed -- a one-year deal worth somewhere around the league veteran minimum, with additional incentives is he becomes a starter.
He was reportedly seeking as much as $3-4 million a season in free agency. He called the free agent experience "frustrating" like many other veterans who were not offered the money they might have gotten in other offseasons.
Where he fits in with the current offensive line lineup is yet to be determined. He will battle for a starting position, and if he wins, it will cause some shuffling on the line.
The competition will now begin, giving fans something else to watch during practices and the preseason.
