Kellen Winslow Jr.'s bark has been more than his bite since he's came into the NFL. He's had some productive seasons but he's not the player he talks himself up to be. In fairness he's seen his share of injuries but if you're as good as you say you are, Winslow would overcome injury and wouldn't be playing on his fourth team in his career.
After last season's one game, one catch performance with the New England Patriots, Winslow signed with the New York Jets and has set some lofty goals for himself. Winslow told the Wall Street Journal that his goal is to have 100 catches. A very lofty goal indeed. Winslow's career high for catches was 89 with the Cleveland Browns in 2006.
"My goal is to have 100 catches," Winslow said. "Will I have 100? I don't know. I might have 20, you know? But that's my goal. You play this game for something, and I know at the end of the day that's going to help my team win because that's what I do best."
"There's always been questions, every season," Winslow, who signed a one-year contract with the Jets last month for a base salary of $840,000, said Thursday. "Every season, there's something said about somebody, that they can't do something. That's what motivates people."
No one is questioning Winslow's motivation, but it's been a question of his health. He can be a contributor to a Jets offense that needs all the contributions it can get, but 100 catches are out of the question in their offense.
With either Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith lobbing passes all season I highly doubt Winslow will reach his goal. Just concentrate on helping the team win.
