TAMPA, Fla. – It turns out Tampa Bay's season opener against Cleveland was more than just another game for Kellen Winslow.
Facing his former team for the first time, the Buccaneers tight end came out of the tunnel during pregame introductions carrying a Bucs flag and ran over to the opposing sideline to wave it in front of the Browns.
Winslow spent five sometimes tumultuous seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Bucs in 2009. He said during the days leading up to Sunday's game that the Browns were just "another team" and that he's happy to be in Tampa Bay.
There was no visible reaction from the Browns, who were shielded from Winslow by a group of volunteers who were on the field to unfold a large American flag for the national anthem.
