Dominik Reached On Sgt. Winslow

The PESSIMIST made no secret of his loathing of the deal that brought Sgt. Winslow to the Bucs. Well, it seems THE PESSIMIST has some company.

Peter King, in his column “Monday Morning Quarterback” today also raised an eyebrow upon learning of the trade.

I think I respect the new Bucs’ management team, but I wonder if GM Mark Dominik has bitten off more than he can chew with the acquisition of (and overpayment of) tight end Kellen Winslow. The Bucs paid a second-round pick in 2009 and a conditional 2010 pick for Winslow, who butted heads with the coaches and management consistently in Cleveland. The Bucs brought him in after being assured by new tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts (formerly of Cleveland) that Winslow is OK, and after doing an MRI on the knee that has troubled him extensively since his motorcycle accident.

Of course Joe hopes this deal works out. Currently, Joe sides with THE PESSIMIST. Call Joe “The Skeptic” if you will.

    I am surprised Peter King had time to comment on this topic. I thought he only covered the major franchises. NYG, NYJ and of course his buddies team the Pack. What Pete? No Favre news keeping busy. It must be tuff finding stories with Brett the Jet retiring. Maybe.
