Kellen Winslow is now a free agent after requesting to be released

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. has been released by the New England Patriots after asking them to do so.

Schefter also said that word is that Aaron Hernandez is healing quicker than expected.

I would love to know why Winslow asked to be released, it seems like he was lucky to be playing for a team right now.  Maybe he plans on retiring with all of the knee problems  he’s had in his career.
