There’s no question that new coach Greg Schiano is changing the culture in Tampa Bay. ‘Out with the old, in with the new’ is his motto, and, in this instance, it certainly applies to the tight end position.
Per Sirius XM NFL Radio host Andrew Bogusch, Kellen Winslow was told Monday morning that he’s “not wanted” by the Buccaneers organization, and the team will help facilitate a trade.
The reason for Winslow’s departure reportedly has to do with his offseason habits; he worked out out alone, rather than with his team, obviously a no-no in Schiano’s eyes.
However, financial reasons likely play a bigger part. The 28-year-old looked to have lost some of his explosiveness last season and the club must feel he’s not worth the $3 million in base salary. If a trade partner cannot be found, expect Winslow to be given his outright release.
In either case, it appears the Buccaneers already have a replacement lined up.
