The Patriots continue to weed through tight ends, and thus the upcoming visit of Kellen Winslow isn’t surprising. Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Visanthe Shiancoe are currently gainfully employed as the Patriots tight ends, however, we all know Shiancoe could be gone in a heartbeat. Winslow, released last week by the Seattle Seahawks will be passing through Gillette, but it’s unlikely the Patriots would sign him, most like they are gathering information for their taxi squad. Another reason for not signing Winslow is contracts are guaranteed if a free agent is signed before the first game of the season.
Winslow was waived by the Seahawks on September 1st, 2012. He declined to reduce his salary so the Seahawks released him
