The Seahawks.com website is reporting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded Kellen Winslow for an undisclosed 2013 pick to the Seattle Seahawks.

Per ProFootballTalk.com

Winslow, the sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft, becomes the seventh tight end on the team’s roster. With the departure of John Carlson via free agency, Winslow could end up being the starter.

Per a league source, the Seahawks made the deal without Winslow renegotiating a contract that pays him a base salary of $3.3 million in 2012.

Per Seahawks.com

The Seahawks scratched their itch for another tight end today when they traded for Kellen Winslow, who averaged 73 receptions the past three seasons for the Buccaneers.

In exchange for Winslow, the Seahawks traded an undisclosed conditional pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The Seahawks have been looking for a tight end to complement Zach Miller since John Carlson signed with the Vikings in free agency. Miller was signed in free agency last summer.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Winslow was a first-round draft by Cleveland in 2004 and caught 219 passes in four seasons with the Browns, including a career-high 89 in 2006. He also had his career-best in receiving yards (1,106) with the Browns in 2007, when he was voted to the Pro Bowl.

For his career, he has 437 receptions for 4,836 yards and 23 touchdowns. Winslow caught 75 passes last season.

Winslow, who will turn 29 in July, is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow.
