On Saturday, it was announced that tight end Kellen Winslow would be invited to the New York Jets minicamp this week. There were no promises – no handshakes. It was play your way into a contract.
Apparently, Winslow has done that as Manish Mehta is reporting the Jets will attempt to sign the seven year veteran.
Worst kept secret at Jets minicamp:
#NYJ will try to sign Kellen Winslow, who’s here on a tryout basis, if he suffers no setbacks with knees
That whole “knee” thing could be a problem for both parties given the “setbacks” are all but inevitable considering the state of his knees, or what’s left of them.
There was no suggestion on what type of contract Winslow would be offered nor was there any talk of dollars, though clearly the Jets wouldn’t be offering much given Winslow’s lack of production and his injury history.
The 2007 Pro Bowl tight end played in one game for the New England Patriots last season, spending the prior three seasons as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
