Well that’s if you can catch a football. Luckily for him, Kellen Winslow Jr can do just that. For his unique mix of football catching and soldiering, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have rewarded junior with the largest tight end deal in history.
Winslow, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, agreed to a six-year, $36.1 million deal that includes $20.1 million in guarantees. With incentives, the deal could grow to $42.1 million.
So is this why the Bucs cleaned house? So they can overpay their resident soldier? If new head coach, Raheem Morris was trying to put his stamp on the new look Bucs, he has definitely succeeded. Let’s just hope, for his sake, that he stashed away some cash to bring in someone who can actually throw the ball to his soldier.
