In a surprise move, the Seahawks released veteran TE Kellen Winslow on Saturday.
A news story on Seahawks.com reported "it is believed he declined a salary reduction."
Winslow was acquired from the Buccaneers in a May trade. Winslow apparently wasn't going to fit in Tampa after the Bucs hired no-nonsense head coach Greg Schiano, who is attempting to change the culture of that franchise.
Winslow had to be monitored in practice this summer, according the Seahawks.com report, because of a chronic knee problem. He caught only three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown in the preseason.
Last season with the Buccaneers, Winslow caught 75 passes for 763 and two touchdowns.
The release of Winslow leaves just two tight ends — Zach Miller and Anthon McCoy — on the Seahawks roster.
