Tampa Bay Buccaneers Acquire Kellen Winslow

Tyler FranzCorrespondent IFebruary 27, 2009

Only two days after releasing fan favorites Derrick Brooks and Warrick Dunn, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already begun their rebuilding process, trading undisclosed draft picks in exchange for Cleveland's Kellen Winslow.

Winslow's career with Cleveland was marred by injuries, but the University of Miami graduate showed immense talent and potential when healthy.  Winslow recorded career-highs of 1,106 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 2007, in which he played in all 16 games.

In 2008, however, Winslow was limited to only 10 games due to a combination of injuries and suspensions.  Winslow finished the year with only 428 yards and three TDs.

Tampa Bay looks to use Winslow to bolster their passing game as a complement to emerging wideout Antonio Bryant.
