Kellen Winslow Will Sign 1-Year Deal With New England Patriots

TE Kellen Winslow – who worked out for the Patriots two weeks ago – is in town to sign a 1-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN.

Winslow was traded from the Buccaneers to the Seahawks, then cut by the Seahawks when he refused a pay cut.

Winslow will help replace Aaron Hernandez, who is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks with a high ankle sprain. No tight ends other than Gronkowski caught passes in Sunday’s shocking loss to the Cardinals, but Michael Hoomanawanui has experience in the offense. Visanthe Schiancoe is on short-term IR, and Jake Ballard is on the PUP list.

The Patriots gouged the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game with 12-153-0 TD (the Ravens allowed 9-176-1 TD, 1 leap over Ed Reed to the Eagles tight ends on Sunday). You can watch the rematch on NBC’s Sunday Night Football at 8:20 PM ET.
