Kellen Winslow II has been in the league for five years (well technically he’s only played in three of those), and they have certainly not been boring. Controversy seems to follow the tight end everywhere, and it’s made its way to Tampa. Winslow decided to skip his new team’s OTAs, and former Buc Warren Sapp is not happy with his work ethic. Via the St. Pete Times….
Tight end Kellen Winslow, the team’s biggest off-season acquisition, did not attend the Bucs’ first day or organized team activities.
Former Bucs defensive tackle Warren Sapp, who visited the club Tuesday, spared no criticism for Winslow.
“So when your team fires up OTA’s and you’re not here, I guess you’re being misunderstood again, right?” Sapp said. “Your past don’t equal your future, but it will damn sure give me some reflection of what you might do. I’ll leave it at that.”
No word yet as to why Winslow did not attend the voluntary workouts Tuesday, but team officials were aware that he had a conflict and would join them soon.
I’ve criticized Sapp in the past for being over-the-top with things, but I have to agree that he’s right on with this one. However, if Winslow told the team about a “conflict”, Sapp might just want to relax.
