The Seattle Seahawks released veteran offensive lineman Eric Winston during Saturday's final cut-down day, according to a report. 

 

 

Winston, 30, was drafted 66th overall by the Houston Texans in 2006. 

After five seasons with the Texans, he had one-year stints with the Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals. 

He's started 112 consecutive games since 2007. 

Winston was competing to start at right tackle, but lost to rookie Justin Britt, a second-round pick out of Missouri. 

Winston is also the president of the NFL Players Association.
