According to NFL.com, a source close to the Seattle Seahawks, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. will be used as a rotational player for the team. Translation: he’s no longer perceived as a full-time player the way he was in Tampa Bay.
The source told Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio that the Seahawks “just didn’t think he could be more than a rotational player at this point after examining his tape and performance.”
Kellen Winslow Jr. is the son of legendary Kellen Winslow Sr., who was also a tight end and who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. Having played for both the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in multi-year stints, Winslow Jr. has recorded 4,836 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns in his career.
