Kellen Winslow was introduced to the Tampa media at One Buc Place shortly after 1pm eastern time. While there are still various rumors speculating the actual compensation package the Browns will receive for dealing Winslow to the Bucs, NFL Networks Adam Sheffer, is reporting that the Bucs will send a 2009 second round pick, plus a 2010 5th round pick to the Browns, also that the Bucs and Winslows agent are in negotiations on a long term extension.
But there are other reports stating it will be a 2009 3rd round pick and a conditional 2010 draft pick.
During Winslow introduction he touched on several different topics.
“I’m coming here as a leader and I’m coming here to win,” Winslow. “Plain and simple. We’re going to have a lot of wins in that stadium.”
“I think everybody makes mistakes,” Winslow said. “The mistake I made when I was I was 19-years-old — I’m 25 now – was on national television. Everybody got to see it. I stand here before you now, I think I’m a changed man.”
“I would say misunderstood would be a better word to use,” Winslow said. “People don’t really know me yet.”
Winslow said he was ‘blessed,’ to return to the state of Florida, where he played collegiately.
“Cleveland treated me right,” Winslow said. “Everything didn’t go as planned there, but I had a good time playing there.”
