Kellen Winslow's physical with the Patriots a couple of weeks ago appears to be much more than a formality. New England could be on the verge of adding the free-agent tight end now that Aaron Hernandez is sidelined.
ESPN.com reports that Winslow has inked a one-year deal with the Patriots. Other reports have surfaced stating that a deal is not done yet, but that the Patriots are expected to sign the veteran.
Winslow worked out with the Patriots a couple of weeks ago, and there were conflicting reports about whether or not he passed his physical due to knee issues. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Winslow did pass his physical, though, which could ultimately pave the way for him to join Bill Belichick's bunch now that Hernandez is expected to be out for at least a few weeks.
Winslow was cut by the Seahawks earlier this offseason after being traded to Seattle by Tampa Bay. The 29-year-old had 75 catches for 763 yards and two touchdowns with the Buccaneers last season.
