Winslow has been released by the Seattle Seahawks. He was traded by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the Seahawks in May.
He was expected to make $3.3 million this season. But it is not likely that he will see that money now, as the 29 year old is looking for a job.
He has been hampered by a injury-prone legs, which has slowly diminished his career. Last month, he said 99% of NFL players would retire with his issues with his legs.
He was not impressive this pre-season, as he only has three receptions for 34 yards.
