They took a little time to make a decision, and now they’ve made up their mind.
Tight end Kellen Winslow is a Jet.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s a one-year deal.
The Jets took a little time to make a decision because of Winslow’s chronic knee problems. After the debacle resulting from the decision to sign quarterback David Garrard (who retired due to a knee problem), the Jets wanted to be careful.
Winslow returns to the NFL for the first time since September 2012, when he had a cup of coffee with the Patriots. The fact that no other team was clamoring for Winslow’s services likely means it’s a deal for the veteran minimum salary.
