It looks like Kellen Winslow won't be a member of the Buccaneers for much longer.
The tight end told Sirius XM NFL Radio on Monday that the team is looking to trade him. Tampa Bay told Winslow not to attend team OTAs.
Winslow has been a consistent performer for the Bucs, receiving at least 730 yards in three seasons for Tampa. He has three years left on his contract, and will be sought after by multiple teams.
Here are three teams that are likely to trade for Kellen Winslow.
If any team could use Winslow, it's the Bears. Chicago is very weak at the tight end position. Kellen Davis started at tight end for the Bears a year ago, and caught just 18 passes for 206 yards.
The Bears have yet to address the issue in the offseason. They don't have a tight end on the roster that has more than 325 career receiving yards, and don't have a strong supporting cast of wide receivers.
Chicago didn't select a tight end or wide receiver in the draft. They traded for Brandon Marshall from the Dolphins a few months ago, but it will be hard for the Bears to rely on him. He's caught for over 1,000 yards every season since 2007, but has trouble getting into the end zone, and has had his share of off the field issues.
Winslow would immediately become one of the best weapons on the team if the Bears could snag him.
The team that sent Brandon Marshall to the Bears could also use Kellen Winslow.
Marshall was Miami's only legitimate option at wide receiver, and they did not get much for him in return. Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill will need all the help he can get. The Dolphins selected Missouri tight end Michael Egnew in the third round, but they can't rely on a rookie to have a major impact next season.
Winslow went to college in Miami, and would fit in nicely with the Dolphins. He would immediately become the best pass catcher on the team if the Dolphins were to acquire him.
St. Louis Rams
The Rams have one of the youngest offenses in the league, and could use a proven veteran like Kellen Winslow.
St. Louis drafted tight end Lance Kendricks in the second round a year ago, but he only caught 28 passes for 352 yards and failed to score a single touchdown. The Rams drafted a few wide outs in this year's draft, but they will be severely disappointed if they are counting on them to make a big impact.
Quarterback Sam Bradford showed in 2010 that he can be successful in the NFL. He just needs the right pieces around him. Winslow could be one of those pieces that help them get back on track.
