It looks like Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll felt like Winslow wasn’t a good fit in the end.

TRIM THE ROSTER
There weren't too many surprising moves during the roster cut-downs, but the Seahawks did surprise people with a release.
Kellen Winslow Jr thought his trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past off-season to the Seattle Seahawks would be a chance to restart his career in an offense more suited for his skills.
Well that plan was derailed before it even got started, as the Seahawks released the 8-year veteran tight end in a cost cutting move. The release saved the team $3.3 million, which would...
This year’s cut-down period for NFL teams featured very few surprises. Until now. The Seahawks released tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. on Saturday, as first reported by Adam Schefter.
Winslow clashed with new Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano and was traded to the Seahawks after not showing up to OTAs. Seattle offered a 7th-round pick for Winslow when most other teams wouldn’t...

In May, Kellen Winslow called the trade that sent him from Tampa Bay to Seattle the “perfect fit“. The Seahawks apparently did not agree as ProFootballTalk has confirmed that the Seahawks will be releasing the veteran tight end.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been going through a young movement for a few seasons now. In addition to that, if new head coach Greg Schiano doesn't think any of his players are buying into the "Buccaneer way" then they are quickly shown the door.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL and NFLRA will be meeting today.
“For the first time in a month, the NFL and the locked-out officials are meeting today, trying to see if they can resolve their differences as the league gets ready to kickoff its 2012 season, according to sources. The NFL refused to confirm the meeting and declined any comment,” wrote Schefter.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who held out of training camp and missed all of preseason in hopes for a new contract, will report to the team on Sunday, according to Adam Schefter.
Jones-Drew did not receive a new contract from the Jaguars. He has accrued $1.2 million in fines for the holdout, but the team may waive the fines.
Jones-Drew wanted a new deal...
The Cowboys are reportedly leaning toward playing it safe with their workhorse tight end who suffered a lacerated spleen in preseason. Adam Schefter is reporting that the chances of Witten playing on Wednesday against the Giants are slim. It makes sense. Sitting Witten in week one would provide 10 days of extra rest since they play on Wednesday to open the season.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles have released quarterback Mike Kafka.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten still hasn’t been cleared to get back on the field.
“After meeting with several medical specialists this week, doctors still have not cleared Dallas TE Jason Witten to play in Wednesday’s regular-season opener vs. Giants, according to league source. Witten is not expected to be re-evaluated until...
