Buccaneers Could consider releasing Kellen Winslow

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could consider releasing TE Kellen Winslow this offseason because they would save $5 million in salary cap space. Winslow has had knee problems in his career and only caught two touchdowns this season but did catch 75 passes for 763 yards. The Bucs would take a $0 cap hit if they released Winslow.

Winslow has already been paid the $20.1 million guaranteed in the six-year contract he signed in 2009, which did not include a signing bonus. Signing bonuses are typically prorated over the life of a contract. Coming off a 75/763/2 season, Winslow is set to make $3.3 million in 2012. It's quite possible that the Bucs will look into severing ties this offseason or next.
