More Evidence Winslow Might Be No. 3 Receiver

July 19th, 2009

Joe has written before that he gets the impression the Bucs may just use tight end Kellen Winslow as a No. 3 receiver with the King of Turds playing tight end.

(Joe is clocking how long it will take loyal commenter Dave to respond, and how Dave will never return after reading Joe’s latest reference to the King of Turds.)

After all, Winslow is a gifted receiver and has the tools of a No. 2 receiver he is so talented.

Doing some research late Saturday after consuming a couple of Caybrews (Joe is so dedicated to his readers, he does research on a Saturday night after daily requisite NFL Network viewing and watching the Rays in another thrilling come-from-behind win), Joe came across an article, on a popular Browns Web site, detailing Winslow’s disinterest in blocking.

Biggest Loss and Impact: S Sean Jones and TE Kellen Winslow.  Winslow was a perfect example of the old adage “addition by subtraction.” Although Winslow will be missed in the passing game, his attitude and lack of desire to run block will not be. This was the biggest indicator of where Mangini wants to take this team. Run the ball and control the clock. You can’t do either effectively with a tight end that doesn’t block anyone.

The Bucs are clearly going to be a smashmouth running team on offense this year. If what writes is accurate, that leads Joe to believe Winslow might be a slot receiver if not a No. 3 receiver, as his father, Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, Sr., often was used.
