RENTON, Wash. (AP) — When the Seattle Seahawks lost their starting right tackle in free agency during the offseason, the contingency plan seemed straightforward.

After seeing significant playing time as a rookie, Michael Bowie would get first crack at stepping in for Breno Giacomini, with rookie draft pick Justin Britt also competing for the job.

That still might be the final scenario. But the signing of veteran right tackle Eric Winston on Tuesday would indicate the situation is unsettled.

Bowie has been slowed by a shoulder injury suffered on the first day of camp, although he’s expected to practice later this week. Britt has looked like a rookie and struggled on Tuesday as he was matched up against starting defensive end Cliff Avril.

Winston, the NFLPA president, has started 119 consecutive games and has the experience advantage over Bowie and Britt.
