With Seattle snub behind him, Kellen Winslow looking for big rebound season with Jets
CORTLAND, N.Y. – Kellen Winslow Jr. is aiming for 100 catches with the New York Jets this season, setting his sights high after a difficult and disappointing 2012.
The former Pro Bowl tight end is still unhappy with how his short tenure ended last summer with the Seattle Seahawks, who cut him after training camp "over money," Winslow says. It put him in a tough spot that, and "you just don't do a vet like that."
Winslow hooked on with New England for one game before asking to be released, and then wondered what his football future held as he was unemployed the rest of the season.
The Jets brought him in for a tryout in June, and signed him a few days later, hoping Winslow can boost the team's tight end corps.
