Tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was acquired by the Seattle Seahawks from Tampa Bay for an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.

Winslow said earlier Monday that he had been told by the Bucs that he no longer fit into their plans and to not attending this week's offseason program. Tampa Bay then signed nine-year veteran Dallas Clark and moved quickly to deal Winslow.

Winslow led the Bucs in receptions each of the past three seasons, but angered rookie head coach Greg Schiano with his absence from the team's early OTA sessions. Acquired from Cleveland in a 2009 trade, Winslow averaged 72.6 catches in his three seasons with the Bucs.

In Seattle, he will team with 2011 free agent acquisition Zach Miller, who turned into a key blocker last season due to injuries along the offensive line. Seattle was in need of another tight end in offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's offense with John Carlson signing with Minnesota after missing last season due to injury.

Winslow, the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow, was a first-round pick by Cleveland out of the University of Miami in 2004, and has 437 career catches for 4,836 yards and 23 touchdowns.
