The Buccaneers pay tight end Kellen Winslow to play tight end. He’s taking on some extra duties.
Assistant to the General Manager.
“I do want to speak upon that it is important to bring back [guard] Davin [Joseph], and I don’t know what is going on with the [linebacker] Barrett Ruud situation, but it would be very disappointing to see him leave,” Winslow told reporters, via PewterReport.com. “He is one of the key leaders on this team and I know the guys in our locker room want him back.”
Winslow will get at least half of what he wants. Per PewterReport.com, the Bucs could be working out a deal with Joseph soon. Joseph reportedly had dinner with G.M. Mark Dominik, coach Raheem Morris, offensive coordinator Greg Olson, offensive line coach Pat Morris, quarterback Josh Freeman, and right tackle Jeremy Trueblood. Joseph did not receive an offer Wednesday night.
As to Ruud, it’s currently expected that he won’t be back.
