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.

Mark Sanchez had the stage to himself for three quarters Saturday night in his bid to secure the starting job as the New York Jets quarterback, but the reviews are mixed following a 37-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at MetLife Stadium. The fifth-year quarterback, whose job looked in jeopardy after the Jets drafted Geno Smith of West Virginia and opened the competition to include former Alabama star Greg McElroy, started well but had an uneven effort after that as he played nine series.

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.

Remember when Kellen Winslow Jr. was going to be the next big thing at tight end in the NFL? Cleveland Browns fans and fantasy football players do, and the New York Jets think Winslow has something left to offer. The Jets signed Winslow, who was the sixth overall selection in the 2004 draft, to a one-year contract after he showed flashes of his potential during the team's minicamp this week. "I feel like it would be a great spot,” said Winslow, who turns 30 in July, of sticking with the Jets.

I remember the towel draped over his head. I remember his arms hanging limp on supporting shoulders. I remember the drained look on his face. I remember Jan. 2, 1982. I remember that Kellen Winslow would not quit. I remember that the Chargers were 41-38 winners over the Miami Dolphins on that long afternoon's journey into night. I remember that they were winners because Kellen Winslow would not quit.

Kellen Winslow is the model of the sensitive superstar, equal parts fragile and fierce. Give him a seam in the middle of a zone, he'll give you first and 10. Don't give him the ball six or seven times a game, he'll turn--as one club official put it--into a pouting "Sonja Henie, prima ballerina type." The way Winslow figures it, you reach the top of your profession and "you brace yourself for the blows."

Androg y nous is a word usually associated with rock stars like Prince and Michael Jackson, whose income is a lot higher than their masculinity index. Rarely is the term used to describe professional football players. Few could define it (having female and male characteristics in one). Fewer still would apply it to themselves. Kellen Winslow of the San Diego Chargers is different.

He was born with everything he'd need to become a great football player. The wriggling baby had genes that foretold size, speed and great hands. He even had the name. But Kellen Winslow Jr. wasn't allowed to play football until he was in high school. His Hall of Fame father said so. "Every time the season would come around, from 9 or 10 years old, I'd get real angry, cry all the time," said Kellen Jr.

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.

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.

DID KELLEN WINSLOW GO TOO FAR IN HIS TIRADE AFTER MIAMI LOST TO TENNESSEE? POINT: The 1st Amendment protects free speech, except when players start wailing about how the officials jobbed them out of a victory. Kellen Winslow is entitled to his opinion that Southeastern Conference officials had it in for him and the Hurricanes. Speaking his mind made for great copy Saturday, but he also stepped over the line with his complaints about the officiating.
