Discharged soldier: Tampa Bay getting rid of Kellen Winslow


Here’s some NFL news that came out of nowhere. One of the league’s most dominant tight ends, Kellen Winslow, was on SiriusXM radio early Monday morning and said he will NOT be back with the Bucs for the upcoming season.

Evidently Schiano told Winslow Saturday night that they are going in a different direction, trying to trade him.

Winslow said Bucs were upset he wasn't working out with them this offseason. Thinks he has a lot left. Caught 75 for 763 last year.

As soon as the news broke, NFL fans across the world tweeted mixed feelings. Some hope their team tries to acquire his services, while other fans wonder how much Winslow has left in the tank.

Kellen Winslow wants out of Tampa. Guess he feels he can be even less productive somewhere else.

Send Kellen Winslow to the West Coast! He would shine in a west coast offense.

Wouldn't be that surprising if Seahawks took a look at Kellen Winslow after having Shiancoe, Tamme in for visits earlier.

Kellen Winslow Jr. Just now realized today he has wasted his career on the Browns and Bucs.

Bears should want Kellen Winslow because he could be a productive weapon for Cutty. But he's not a blocker and Bears need that at TE.

Is Kellen Winslow still any good? Naw he was just a college player

It would make sense for the New York Giants to try to acquire Kellen Winslow. They can't go into 2012 with just Martellus Bennett.

In case you’re not familiar with the 28-year-old, he’s most famous for this “I’m a SOLDIER!” rant.
