Clark going to Tampa. They cut ties with Winslow.

If Winslow's knees were in a better shape - now I don't know if they are or aren't because he didn't partake in the Bucks' OTAs - he might be an intriguing guy to target.

If he'd be willing to sign for less than what he would've made with the Bucs - $3.3M/2012 & $4.5M/2013 - he might be a really nice target to add to the Saints' offense.

Winslow's traded in the division? i think not. in the conference? no way.

i would give him a look at.

has played in all 16 games since 2009. 70 catches a year and 700 yards on average.

The question now is whether Clark, who will turn 33 next month, has anything left on the field: He has struggled through injuries the last two seasons and is coming off a year in which he caught just 34 passes for 352 yards.

Of course, Manning wasn't the QB.......

now for the funny part of this

on April 6, 2009 he became at the time the richest TE in the NFL.
six-year, $36.1 million
includes $20.1 million in guarantees.
With incentives, the deal could grow to $42.1 million

BUT.........

Winslow is due $3.3 million, $4.5 million, and $5.5 million, with no guarantees,

i would probably wait to see if they cut him first.

I would like to have signed Clark to keep him away from TB. I think he'll really help them. I'd definitely like to add Winslow if the price is right. I'm always for adding big, physical targets for the soon to be signed (fingers crossed) Drew Brees.

I doubt that the Bucs will be able to make a trade for him since teams are not going to want to take on the existing contract Winslow has and they also know that the Bucs are most likely going to cut him if they can't find a trading partner.

Winslow has had a consistent history of knee surgeries, so teams are not looking at him as a high offseason target due to the uncertainty of whether he'll be able to produce at a high level and if he has many years left in his career.


This is the basis on which I was making the comment that Winslow might be an interesting target for the Saints, because if he is cut, he might just want to sign with the Saints to get back at his former team. Furthermore, he might be willing to sign for an affordable price if he sees that the benefit of playing with someone like Brees will ultimately be the best opportunity for him to have as much success as possible during the rest of his career, which some speculate might be entering its final years even though he's only 28.

He is no doubt a warrior, because he has been able to play even with all the complications he has had with his knees, but the injuries/surgeries have taken their toll and he has lost some speed and mobility, which I guess is why the Bucs ultimately decided that he would be expendable. But still, he could make a hell of a TE pair with Graham being 6-4 and 240 lbs.

How can we even talk about signing anyone else, when we are in such a salary cap bind with Drew at the moment?
