    Kellen Winslow says Buccaneers don't want him, will try to find trade


    When we talk about the top tight ends in the game today, the names of Antonio Gates!, Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez are usually the first to surface. As outspoken as he's been in his career, Kellen Winslow usually isn't mentioned in the same breath, but he's put together a solid-enough career, averaging 72.7 catches and four touchdowns during his past three years with the Buccaneers.

    Apparently, though, he doesn't fit into new Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano's long-term plans.

    On Monday morning, Winslow told Sirius XM NFL Radio that he won't play for the Buccaneers this season, saying the team doesn't want him any longer and desires to trade him. He said he believes that the Buccaneers are willing to part ways because he hasn't been participating in the team's voluntary workouts this offseason.

    The trade market, though, might be tough for Winslow. He's been injured throughout much of his career, and he's coming off a 2011 season in which he scored only two touchdowns. If Winslow and the Buccaneers can't find a team to take him, it's probable the team will release him.

    According to Rotoworld, the team would save $4.8 million in the salary cap if it gets rid of him. Winslow signed a six-year, $36.1 million contract in 2009 that paid him a guaranteed $20.1 million. He was due a $3.3 million base salary this year.

    So, where will the Buccaneers turn next for solid tight end play? This might be a clue from ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.
    Bucs worked out former Colts TE Dallas Clark last week, are expected to try to make a move on him this week.

    I'd chip in to keep him off the roster........ a nickel should be plenty of compensation.

    Agree. I would be OK if the Chargers implemented a "No The U" policy

    the only school i refuse to accept any Chargers from is Stephen F. Austin University - and that's for obvious reason. LSU could soon join that list but it'll depend on Brandon Taylor

    I'm sorry - I'm missing the obvious reason. Do they not have a football program?

    I do believe Stephen Alexander harked from that school, I could be wrong though.

    It was Ant's comment, I'll wait for his answer rather than project. :)
