KELLEN WINSLOW AVAILABLE AFTER BEING CUT

NOLA.com

Saints should definitely bring the guy in for a workout and a chat. Graham and a healthy Winslow would give the Saints that New England double TE package. Winslow also brings alot of veteran leadership and fierce attitude to the game.

Only downside so far is the word on his release is due to a refusal to take a paycut after being outshined by 2 other TE's so he was cut.

The Seattle Seahawks have released veteran tight end Kellen Winslow, the team announced Saturday.
NFL Network and NFL.com's Albert Breer first reported the transaction, citing a source with knowledge of the situation.
Danny O'Neil of The Seattle Times reported Winslow might have refused a paycut, but the Seahawks couldn't have been thrilled with his limited production. Winslow's three catches for 34 yards in the preseason were a far cry from the player of years past. Winslow was part of a wave of veteran pass catchers brought in during the offseason by coach Pete Carroll. The seven-year veteran was listed along with Zach Miller and Anthony McCoy on the team's 53-man roster, but Winslow failed to outshine those two. McCoy, especially, showed chemistry with rookie starting quarterback Russell Wilson late in the preseason.
Seattle shipped a conditional 2013 seventh-round draft pick in May to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the rights to Winslow, who failed to win over new Bucs coach Greg Schiano this offseason after three productive years with the team. Winslow's time with the Buccaneers included 218 receptions for 2,377 yards and 12 touchdowns. Those numbers are close to what Winslow did in four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, where he hauled in 219 passes for 2,459 yards and 11 scores.
There were moments in Cleveland when Winslow's fierce athleticism alone helped the Browns create matchup problems for defenses, but he's not that player today. Multiple operations to Winslow's battle-worn knees raise questions about his future in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised to see another club -- thin at tight end -- take a chance on Winslow, but Seattle has seen enough.

Jimmy Grahm IS what Winslow was "supposed" to be. I'd prefer Shockey over Winslow.

I'd rather bring Higgins (minus the porn stache) or that other dude back.

Likewise. Very much liked what I saw of him this preseason.

Man, I looked at Winslow's player card and I can still remember him in college making that stupid comment on TV. Time certainly flies.

NOOOOOOO!!! We couldn't afford the tissue for him! We need linebackers not crybabies. He belongs with the forty-whiners.

One thing I'm pretty sure winslow has never been accused of is being a leader. Everything I've ever heard about him suggests to me he's closer to a locker room cancer. I would say pass

Re: KELLEN WINSLOW AVAILABLE AFTER BEING CUT

Winslow's rookie season we had this real quiet guy (looks like the Comic Books Guy from BB Theory), his first season in a big money league and he was drafting and was getting hazed pretty good...

... everytime he went up to pull the sticker off the CBS Sportsline page and put it on the Draft Board, he's literally shaking every pick...

Round Six he picks Winslow, CLE and some of the louder guys really started in, catcalling, rookie chants, asking him why he's drafting a second TE so early and the guy just screams back the Quote - 'cause he's a F**king Soldier - That's Why!

You coulda heard a pin dropped for about ten seconds, seemed forever...

I busted into an uncontrollable laugh my best friend, the commish, swears sounds like Burt Reynolds laugh - the draft stopped twenty minutes just for us to recoup...

That's my best memory of Winslow and I don't think he's got any knees left to make a better one in a Saints uniform...

Re: KELLEN WINSLOW AVAILABLE AFTER BEING CUT

Nope, dude is an underachiever and gives up on plays. I would rather bring back Higgins or get someone who is a pure blocker. We have the other Graham for that but another wouldn't hurt.
