Kellen Winslow to Seattle

The Seahawks announced Monday night they've acquired tight end Kellen Winslow from Tampa Bay, giving up an undisclosed conditional pick in the 2013 draft.

Wow. That's not a whole heck of a lot for a player who was once the No. 6 overall pick in the draft and who caught 75 passes for 763 yards last season.

Winslow has led the Bucs in receptions in three successive seasons in fact.

His role in Seattle will likely be the one John Carlson filled last year. Or at least the one he was going to fill until he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in training camp.

Zach Miller still figures to be the starter, but Seattle will go with the heavy-diet of two tight-end sets it envisioned a year ago before Carlson's injury.

Programming note: Danny O'Neil is on vacation this week, and will be returning to the blog on May 29.
