Kellen Winslow Works Out With Patriots

The New England Patriots brought former Seattle Seahawks tight end Kellen Winslow in for a workout on Tuesday, according to NFL.com.

Winslow caught 75 passes for 763 yards with coach Pete Carroll's team in 2011, and the interest by the Patriots makes sense if they're looking to add depth to the formidable tight end duo of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Though Pro Football Talk said that there was no word if the Patriots had offered Winslow a contract, working him out gives them a good feel for a solid option should one of their star tight ends gets hurt.

The Patriots also have Visanthe Shiancoe on the roster, but his health has been an issue of late.

Cut on Sunday by Seattle, Winslow will likely not be offered a contract by New England right away, even if they want to bring him aboard. Signing him before Week 1 would make his contract guaranteed.
