Bucs give Kellen Winslow massive extension


Recommended Posts

Kellen Winslow has signed a six-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that could pay as much as $42.1 million, FOXSports.com has learned.

According to agent Drew Rosenhaus, Winslow's $36.1 million contract includes $20.1 million in guaranteed money — an NFL record for a tight end — as well as an additional $6 million that can be earned through incentives.

The Bucs acquired Winslow in February from Cleveland for a 2009 second-round pick and a 2010 fifth-rounder.

The No. 6 overall selection in the 2004 draft, Winslow emerged as one of the NFL's top all-around tight ends despite injuries that limited him to two games in his first two seasons. But the fiery Winslow had a tumultuous relationship with Browns management and was never given a chance to forge a relationship with new head coach Eric Mangini before being traded.

Winslow, 25, reached the Pro Bowl in 2007 after notching 82 receptions for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns
