While it has been speculated the Buccaneers were in negotiations with Drew Rosenhaus the agent for tight end Kellen Winslow on a long term extension. Dan Parr, of Profootballweekly.com sighting an unnamed NFL source say’s those talks have come to a scretching halt. According to the source there are major concerns over Winslow’s long term health.
As we all know under the past two regimes the Bucs never signed players to extensions until they were in the final year of an existing contract.
But the bigger head scratcher is that if there are now concerns over the longevity of Winslow’s career due to multiple injuries that have limited Winslow to just 44 games out of a possible 74 since being drafted in the first round of the 2004 draft. Why did the team surrender a second round pick in 2009 & a fifth rounder in 2010 to acquire a player with injury concerns.
