In May, Kellen Winslow called the trade that sent him from Tampa Bay to Seattle the “perfect fit“. The Seahawks apparently did not agree as ProFootballTalk has confirmed that the Seahawks will be releasing the veteran tight end.

For the first time in his career, Kellen Winslow will become a free agent.

Drafted by the Browns, Winslow was traded to Tampa in 2009.  The Bucs sent him to Seattle for a seventh-round pick in 2013.

The sixth overall pick in 2004, Winslow wrecked his knee while performing stunts on a motorcycle in May 2005.  Despite appearing in only two combined games over the first two years of his career, Winslow went on to have a solid career.

Whether that career will continue now depends on whether another team wants to bring him in.

In the end, the Seahawks may have had the same concerns that the Buccaneers reportedly had.  A tight end who has a history of demanding the ball may not be the ideal target for a rookie quarterback.
