The Seattle Seahawks traded a 2013 undisclosed conditional draft choice to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for tight end Kellen Winslow Jr., the team announced late Monday.
The Seahawks have been looking for a tight end to complement Zach Miller since John Carlson signed with the Vikings in free agency.
Winslow was originally a first-round draft choice -- the sixth-overall selection -- by the Cleveland Browns in the 2004 NFL Draft and played five seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, where he played three seasons.
He has played in 92 career games with 80 starts, collecting 437 receptions for 4,836 yards with a long of 49 and 23 touchdowns. Since 2008, Winslow ranks fifth in the NFL in receiving yards among tight ends with 2,805.
In his three seasons in Tampa Bay, Winslow played in all 48 games and averaged 73 receptions and 792 yards. He started 15 games last season and caught 75 passes for 763 yards and two touchdowns.
Winslow, who will turn 29 in July, is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
