Ain’t nobody trading for Kellen Winslow, Jr.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been pretty clear that they don’t have TE Kellen Winslow, Jr. in their plans. It’s already been reported that they were trying to trade him to the Chicago Bears this past offseason, but the Bears were more interested in getting Brandon Marshall
So now, the Bucs will probably take anything that anyone will give up for him. And if that doesn’t happen, he’ll likely be released outright.
Look for the second thing to happen. Even though the majority of his guaranteed payouts have been payed by the Bucs, he is still due salaries of $3.3 million, $4.5 million and $5.5 million over the next three years.
Ain’t nobody paying that.
And not only that, any team interested in Winslow’s services knows that too. Why would they give something up for him when they know that no one else would either? And they know the Bucs will eventually cut him, so they can go after him then.
With teams emulating the New England Patriots’ two-tight end system, Winslow won’t be on the market for long. There are plenty of teams that could use him.
