Buccaneers Sign TE Winslow to Record Contract

By  | 

Former Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow has agreed to a six-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs acquired Winslow from the Cleveland Browns on Feb. 27 in exchange for a second-round pick in this year's draft and a fifth-rounder in 2010.

The 25-year-old Winslow was sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft. He had 219 receptions for 2,459 yards and 11 touchdowns in five seasons with Cleveland, and the Bucs are counting on him to have a major impact in their offense.

Winslow had 89 catches for 875 yards and three touchdowns in 2006 and followed with 82 receptions for 1,106 yards in 2007. He survived a serious motorcycle accident and battled injuries throughout his stay in Cleveland, and last season squabbled with the Browns' front office.
