The Minutemen were Patriots. The Minutemen were soldiers. Kellen Winslow is a soldier. And so it makes sense for the Patriots to be interested in Kellen Winslow.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Patriots are bringing in Kellen Winslow for a visit.
If signed, Winslow would join a group of tight ends that includes Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Visanthe Shiancoe. Then there’s Jake Ballard, whom the Pats claimed on waivers and will carry on injured reserve.
There’s no indication Winslow, who was cut Saturday by the Seahawks, will be offered a contract. If he is, it’s more proof of the extent to which the Pats are transforming NFL offense with big guys who can run and catch.
That said, the Pats likely would wait until after Week One to make a move. If Winslow is signed now, his full base salary would be essentially guaranteed, via the termination pay provision of the CBA.
