The Seattle Seahawks cut ties with veteran tight end Kellen Winslow on Saturday, a day after making their initial roster cuts to the league mandated 53 players, reports NFL.com.
Winslow was traded to the Seahawks from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in May. Winslow set to earn $3.3 million in 2012. Had Winslow made the Week 1 roster that salary would have been fully guaranteed, a collective bargaining termination pay provision.
Winslow had 218 receptions for 2,377 yards and 12 touchdowns with the Buccaneers, whom he played for from 2009-2011. For his career, Winslow has caught 437 passes for 4,836 yards and 23 scores.
