Today in NFC South history
By Pat Yasinskas
On this date one year ago we first pondered the possibility of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers parting ways with tight end Kellen Winslow.
A couple of months later, the Bucs said goodbye to Winslow after he missed the start of team workouts. It was also part of Greg Schiano’s message to his team that things were going to be a lot different than they were under predecessor Raheem Morris.
Winslow later surfaced in Seattle, where he made fun of Schiano’s “toes on the line’’ slogan. But Winslow wasn’t laughing for long. The Seahawks released him before the season started.
Winslow then landed in New England, but that didn’t work out well either. He appeared in one game and had one catch before the Patriots released him and no other team picked him up. As of this moment, Winslow is a man without a team.
The Bucs didn’t seem to miss him much. The signed veteran Dallas Clark, who turned in a decent 2012 season.
