Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano is putting his stamp on his team in big way. If you can’t approach offseason workouts the way he wants, your service in a Bucs uniform will not be needed.
In an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday morning, tight end Kellen Winslow Jr stated that team told him his services are no longer needed. He said the Bucs let him know that they will attempt to trade him.
Winslow was shocked by the announcement and didn’t mince words when describing his feelings. “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 even with a sore knee and no real practice time appeared in all 16 regular season games and caught 75 passes for 763 yards and two touchdowns.
Schiano is a disciplinarian and a straight-laced coach and isn’t trying to hear anything about all his players not taking part in offseason team conditioning drills. Veteran strong safety Tanard Jackson was also released due to poor off-season work ethic.
Schiano isn’t wasting anytime replacing Winslow either. Former Colts tight end Dallas Clark was brought in for a workout and probably will come to terms with team sometime this week.
