One of the NFL's hottest offensive line commodities is set to make his second stop on a free-agency tour.
After meeting with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday, a source told FOXSports.com that Eric Winston is heading to Kansas City for a Thursday meeting with the Chiefs.
St. Louis and Baltimore also have shown strong interest, the source said.
Winston is the most attractive right tackle on the free-agent market after his surprising release Monday by Houston. Winston, 28, started every game the past five seasons for one of the NFL's most prolific offenses.
The Dolphins are seeking to bolster the right side of their offensive line with both 2011 starters (guard Vernon Carey and tackle Mark Colombo) now free agents. As first reported by FOXSports.com, Cleveland guard/tackle Artis Hicks is meeting Wednesday night with the Dolphins.
