Winslow could turn into major steal Dan Leberfeld
The Jets signing of tight end Kellen Winslow II on Friday could turn out to be a great move.
Let’s look at the facts.
From 2009-2011, he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in receiving each of those seasons.
He wanted nothing to do with Greg Schiano and his college approach, so he ripped the coach in the press, and was traded to Seattle.
The only reason he wasn’t on the Seahawks last year is that he refused to take a pay-cut after training camp.
He had a brief stint with New England last year, but wanted out because he would be stuck behind Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
So he sat out most of last season.
The guy is a heck of a player, who has been healthy the last four years (he had knee issues earlier in his career).
And Rex Ryan is the perfect coach for him. Winslow is a free spirit who fits in better with Ryan, than Bill Belichick or Schiano.
This signing could turn into a major steal for the Jets.
