Per ESPN for undisclosed draft picks

Wow.

Buccaneers acquired TE Kellen Winslow from the Browns in exchange for undisclosed draft picks.
We'll guess it's a second-round pick and a late-rounder. The Bucs will likely give Winslow a new contract too, so it's a costly move. They needed the pass-catching help badly, though, and Winslow is still only 25 even if he's had knee problems in the past. He's not a great bet to play deep into his 30s, but getting away from Cleveland's QB controversy can't hurt his outlook. Winslow has averaged over five catches a game the last three seasons and is one of the league's top five receiving tight ends.

Unexpected but not surprising, if that makes sense.

Schefter thinks it might be something along the lines of a 2/5 or a 3/6.

Who knows, maybe he can get his head on straight, learn to properly ride a motorcycle and avoid staph infections in Tampa.

You know, before the break on NFL Network, they were all chuckling at Haynesworth's huge contract, except for Schefter. I knew something big was up.

Very interesting if they were able to get a second and a fifth for him. They should have just given us a first and a second for Tony G if that is the going rate for a underachieving TE.

Makes me wonder about his knee, because he's a hell of a player.

Two things I would be concerned about:

1) Brady Quinn. The Fucking Soulja is a hell of a nice safety blanket for a QB to have
2) Is this Mangini pissing the hydrants again?

Hopefully, this gives Martin Rucker a chance to break out, so if I run into him at the bars again, I won't have to tell him to kill himself.

Guards are even more important than TE's, so we should be able to get multiple firsts in the coming weeks.

Winslow was part of the QB controversy. He dropped a ton of balls. DA always played better when Heiden was in there.

So does the Martin Rucker era start for the browns? He'd be a solid guy for the bucs if he can stay healthy

Winslow will probably be distracted by all of the Strip clubs in Tampa... and start making it rain.
