NFL Rumor: Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Replace Kellen Winslow with Dallas Clark?
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to move on from the Kellen Winslow Era, as first reported by Pat Yasinskas of ESPN. Rumor has it that the Bucs may look to add Dallas Clark to replace him.
"They're not looking for my services this year. (Coach Greg Schiano) said he'd help me out with a trade. It's kind of shocking, but that's what it is," Winslow said on Sirius XM Radio.
Clark worked out with the Bucs and they are expected to give him a contract sometime soon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Clark has received interest from several teams, including the New England Patriots.
"(Schiano was) kind of upset that I wasn't there with the team working out in the offseason and then the first week of OTAs. You know, look, I've been there the last three years and I've had a successful career so far. You just don't get rid of one of your best players because of that," Winslow said.
The 28-year-old Winslow had a solid season last year, putting up 75 catches for 763 yards and two touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Clark has been coming off two straight injury-filled seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. The 33-year-old's last good season was in 2009 when he had 100 catches for over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
