Never one to shy away from adding new talent, especially if it costs him little to do so, Pete Carroll made another roster splash by basically stealing former Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. away from the Buccaneers for a measly 7th round draft pick.
Considering that Winslow has averaged 73 receptions a year the last three seasons for the Buccaneers, this looks on paper like grand larceny. So why did the Buccaneers let this valuable commodity go so cheaply?
Well, it appears that not only was Winslow probably not in the long term plans for the new regime led by head coach Greg Schiano, but when Winslow didn’t show up for OTAs, that seems to have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Winslow himself said in an interview with SiriusXM that his not being present at the start of OTAs was a misunderstanding and nothing more. Either way, the Seahawks made out very well with a minimal investment in the deal.
So of course the big question is, how will Winslow fit in wi...

With all the controversy, self-centeredness, INJURIES, and all the baggage that comes with Kellen Winslow, the Seattle Seahawks have decided to take a chance on Winslow. Was Seattle forced into this trade or do they like settling for average players with the “I” mentality. Winslow is a former Cleveland Brown and now a former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, now nine seasons...

Seattle Seahawks newly acquired tight end, Kellen Winslow, made headlines this week after being traded from Tampa Bay. He's back again, after allegedly trashing a$9,000 a month, San Diego rental home, this, according to the San Diego Tribune. Winslow and his wife only rented the home for six months, but to the owners maintain that was enough to wreck the place and the furnishings.
While Kellen Winslow is a good player, since joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Josh Freeman, Winslow has failed to match the production he achieved in his two best seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
In 2006 and 2007, Winslow recorded 171 receptions, 1,981 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns.
However, in 2009 and 2011 with Tampa Bay, Winslow recorded 152 receptions, 1,647...

Welcome to Seattle K2

After trading Kellen Winslow for a 7th round pick to the Seahawks, the Buccaneers signed Dallas Clark to play the role they thought Kellen Winslow was too expensive to play. They will be using Clark as solely a pass catcher behind new starter Luke Stocker, a 2011 4th round pick. However, they will be paying Clark 2.7 million this season. Winslow would have only made 3.3 million....

A couple of months ago when Pete Carroll and John Schneider brought in free agent tight end Visanthe Shiancoe for a visit, I was all but convinced the Seahawks would be signing him to a deal soon after.
Everything about Shiancoe, the former Viking, seemed like a logical fit into Seattle's offense --
