FOXBORO -- Tight end Kellen Winslow will not be joining the Patriots anytime soon after failing his physical, according to a report by CSN New England.
Winslow, 29, has chronic problems with his knees and was released last week by the Seahawks after reportedly refusing to take a pay cut. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound tight end caught 75 passes last season but only two for touchdowns for the Buccaneers. Winslow - the sixth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Browns - seriously injured his right knee in a motorcycle accident in 2005. He has had several surgeries on the knee since, including microfracture surgery in 2007.
Another tight end, Visanthe Shiancoe was also reportedly placed on injured reserve on Wednesday, and designated as the Patriots player eligible to return this season from IR as part of the new rule in the NFL this season.
