Winslow to Pats as West tight ends score
By Mike Sando
News that Kellen Winslow has a deal with New England means the veteran tight end could visit Seattle, the team that released him last month, for a Week 6 game.
The Seahawks arguably missed Winslow in their opening-week defeat at Arizona. The decision to release him was more of a longer-term move. But with tight end Anthony McCoy catching a 22-yard touchdown pass for the Seahawks against Dallas in Week 2, perhaps Seattle is coming out OK.
The Seahawks and St. Louis Rams were the only NFL teams to finish the 2011 regular season without a touchdown reception from a tight end. Both had tight ends score touchdowns in Week 2.
Matthew Mulligan caught the go-ahead touchdown pass from Sam Bradford during the fourth quarter of the Rams' 31-28 victory over Washington. McCoy's scoring catch from Russell Wilson gave Seattle a 20-7 lead in the third quarter.
San Francisco's Vernon Davis has three touchdown receptions thus far, giving NFC West tight ends five scoring receptions through two weeks.
