The New York Jets have signed free-agent tight end Kellen Winslow to a one-year deal, according to a NBC Sports report. Winslow, who will turn 30 in July, was brought in by the Jets last week for a tryout during mini-camp to help the Jets improve their tight end position on the roster.

Winslow will compete with current starting tight end Jeff Cumberland and converted rugby player Hayden Smith for repetitions.

The former first-round selection by the Cleveland Browns in 2004 last played with the Patriots in 2012 where he appeared in just one game and caught one pass for 12 yards.  Winslow has played for the Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Patriots over 10 seasons in the NFL and has 4,848 receiving yards with 23 touchdown receptions in his career.

The Jets finished 6-10 in 2012.

for those well informed readers  the Seahawks signed him last year and cut him right away.  seems his knee is bone to bone and repetitions wont be a problem as the guy never practices, and for that matter, never plays.  so the pats are last on the list.  teabox to kellan for minus 3 yards.  fourth down.

will the knees hold up? both the pats (who love TE's) and the seahawks (who could use some more skill at the postion) kicked  the tires on him. not a good sign.
