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.
