Kellen Winslow Jr. has agreed to a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, according to a report Tuesday morning on ESPN.com. Winslow is an eight-year veteran tight end who made the Pro Bowl with the Cleveland Browns in 2007, when he caught for a career-high 1,106 yards to go with 82 receptions and five touchdowns. He has hit the five-touchdown mark two other times, in 2009 and 2010 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After catching 75 passes for 763 yards and two touchdowns for the Bucs last season, Winslow was traded to Seattle during the off-season but was cut by the Seahawks earlier this month.

Monday was a busy day for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the tight end front. First they traded former all-pro Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks for an undisclosed conditional draft pick in 2013. Then they signed another ex-pro bowler in free agent Dallas Clark, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts. Last season Winslow led the Bucs in receptions (75) and was a very close second in receiving yards to Mike Williams (771 to 763). In his three years with Tampa Bay he had 218 receptions for 2,377 yards and 12 touchdowns.

CLEVELAND -- On a less-than-ideal night for football, Pittsburgh made it a perfect 10 over Cleveland. Ignoring his sore shoulder and wind gusts of 60 mph, Ben Roethlisberger threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Hines Ward as the Steelers made it 10 straight wins over their closest rival, beating the Browns, 10-6, to extend the NFL's longest current winning streak between two teams. As is their way, the Steelers wrecked Cleveland's return to prime time after a five-year hiatus.

'For you to play in seven straight games and decide you're the best tight end in the league, I don't think that's appropriate to say.' Antonio Gates, San Diego tight end, on Cleveland's often-injured Kellen Winslow

Kellen Winslow, activated again after spending most of his first two NFL seasons on the injured list, was so jacked up last Sunday that he all but hyperventilated before the Cleveland Browns' opener against the New Orleans Saints. Teammate Braylon Edwards said he was "gasping for air." Later, after scoring his first NFL touchdown on an 18-yard, third-quarter pass from quarterback Charlie Frye, Winslow nearly knocked the air out of trainer Marty Lauzon, so vehement was their celebratory bear hug.
