Tampa Bay confirmed today that they are trying to trade Kellen Winslow. The Mercurial TE is available for some unknown level of draft pick compensation. The Seahawks could use another TE, so should they begin talks with the Bucs?
The answer to that question is a resounding “no.”
Winslow is a remarkable athlete. He’s big, strong, fast; everything you’d want from a TE physically. He’s the type of unique athlete that Pete Carroll covets. Yet there’s a reason why he’s available. With his athletic skills he should be dominant. Yet both the Bucs and the Browns have managed to get rid of him as quickly as possible.
Winslow is the offensive version of Aaron Curry. He’s the ultimate underachiever; never able to get his head out of the way so his body can perform.
Lets face it, Winslow isn’t the answer. The Seahawks are better off keeping their draft picks.
