Not really, he played hard whilst he was on the Seahawks

Yeah. I disagree with that too. He was very animated last year, even though he was on a losing team. I think he wants to play. It all depends on if his body will hold up. He can get any team 700 yards and 5 touchdowns.

I agree. He loved being here, and he got into a lot of trash talk with our defense.

He got cut because he wouldn't take a pay cut. I wish him well.

Apparently Anthony McCoy is going to be the #2 TE. In fairness, he has had a nice off-season. He is very similar to Zach Miller in playing style.

Hopefully that allows us to use Miller down the field some more.

This is exactly what happens when you take someone that has the talent and attitude of TO but doesn't have the work ethic.

I loved the thought of K2 in the NFL because of what his dad did for my team but K2 never had the work ethic to rehab the injuries and strengthen them for a full NFL season.

He never developed as a proper red zone target either due to his crappy route running. The dude always got by on pure athletic talent and didn't prep for an NFL season. All that said, he's still a baller on game day from time to time and if there wasn't such a logjam at TE in San Diego right now I'd want to bring him in as our #2 but McMichael just offers more durability and on a team that lacks that I wouldn't give up a player I know will be available on Sunday for the fragile K2.

His only major issue with injury which is a big one is his knee's they prevent him from practicing and eventually they will prevent him from being any good in games.

There should be plenty of teams that want this guy, he's a soldier. Also for people who say TE's shouldn't go top 10 I'd easily spend that pick on a TE like Gronkowski or Graham.

Bucs will not receive a draft pick from the Seahawks for Winslow, unless he rejoins the team. Bucs will get a seventh for Brian Price

I feel like Kellen Winslow was drafted so high at #6 in 2004 was because he was supposed to turn into the player/TE that Rob Gronkowski is currently. And by that, I mean a TE who is dominant because of his size/athleticism to go along with great hands. I feel like Rob is what Kellen was supposed to be.


You are exactly right. He could of become that player had he never gotten on the motorbike. Not saying it was a lock but there was a chance he could of been that good. He wrecked his knees bigtime. I'm impressed he has been able to be as good as he has been.


Yeah I thought that with his knee trouble he would have been out of the league by now..

He was recently quoted as saying that 99% of the players in the league would have already retired under his same circumstances.
