While the Chiefs were busy wooing Winston over BBQ, Chiefs fans used Winston’s Twitter handle (@EricWinston) as a recruiting tool. "Oh man, I tell you what, that was something else," Winston said. "My Twitter blew up obviously when I was released and got a lot of messages from a lot of people. I feel like the fans from Kansas City probably blew it up five times more than anyone else’s fan base. "Every day, it was, ‘Come to Kansas City. Come to Kansas City,’ and then obviously when it was made known that I was in town, I had hundreds of mentions every day. To give you an idea of what that is, I usually have 50 or 75 mentions after a big game, and every day, just random mentions by all the fans, hundreds of them. I was really taken aback."

Eric Winston: Chiefs put on full-court press "And we helped!!!!!"
