In a move that comes as a bit of a surprise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shipped tight end Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks–which should provide them with an effective tight-end duo in the passing game with Winslow and Zach Miller.
Numerous teams around the NFL have focused on adapting to the two tight-end formation and acquiring Winslow was a great move for a team that should content in the NFC West in 2012. Winslow led the Buccaneers in receptions during each of his three seasons with the team and has come along way since the beginning of his career when he had to overcome numerous knee injuries.
One of the main reason why Winslow was shipped to the Seahawks was because new head coach Greg Schiano was upset with the fact that he skipped the first week of organized team activities. Clearly, Winslow wasn’t part of Schiano’s plans to get the Buccaneers back to an elite level–so this move seemed to work out best for both parties.
