Kellen Winslow is the newest member of the Seattle Seahawks, and quite possibly could be the most excited to be here as well. Winslow recently spoke on ESPN's NFL 32, calling his pairing with his head coach Pete Carroll and his new team a "perfect fit" noting that he can't wait to be a "piece of the puzzle."
Even though Winslow may have been a round peg for a square hole in both Cleveland and Tampa Bay, he's not fretting on the past and is completely focused on the task at hand, his new team:
"I don't want to say anything bad about coach Schiano," Winslow said. "It just wasn't a good fit, I guess. When a new regime comes in sometimes that's what happens..."I can be myself out here - it's going to be fun. I'm totally excited. Everybody's real nice here and I'm excited to play for the 12th Man."
Winslow's father, NFL Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr., thought the move was a great thing for his son, noting that trades aren't necessarily a bad thing.
"So many people take a trade as something negative. And it's not," said the elder Winslow. "He may not fit in one team's plan, but you fit in another team's plan. So it is a good thing. In today's game, a player moving around is nothing new. It is rare to see a guy stay with one team, unless you're a quarterback or a left tackle."
Now we'll have to wait and see how this puzzle comes together with Winslow on the field.
