SEAHAWKS RELEASE KELLEN WINSLOW AND HIRE EVAN MOORE
Tue, 04 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Kellen Winslow caught more passes over the prior 5 seasons than all but 2 tight ends in the NFL.

Winslow was acquired by the Seahawks in the hopes that along with Zach Miller the duo could become a formidable set of tight ends who could add another part to the Seattle Seahawks offense.

Those plans drastically changed when Winslow was released by the team, keeping true to the Seahawks’ past form of fooling with their roster even after all training camp cuts are made.

A team spokesperson confirmed Winslow’s release shortly after it was reported. Winslow was booked to make $3.3 million in base income in 2012, following his trade from Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Seattle Seahawks in May.

Seattle moved speedily to fill Winslow’s spot by agreeing to terms with former Cleveland tight end Evan Moore, who was released by the Browns on Friday. Moore caught 34 passes for 324 yards and 4 touchdowns a season gone for Cleveland.

Cutting Winslow temporarily left Seattle with just Miller and Anthony McCoy on the active register, but there’s likely to be more shuffling before the Seahawks start preparations for the regular season opener at Arizona on Sept. 9.

The Seahawks gave up a conditional draft pick to the Buccaneers to get Winslow, who declared it became clearer he did not fit into the plans of new Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano. Even with knee problems in the past, he was anticipated to be a significant contributor to the Seahawks offense. Basketball scores

”I knew when Raheem (Morris) left and Coach Schiano came in I was kind of doubtful the way the fit was going to be, how the team was intended to be run,” Winslow related during training camp. ”So it does inspire me. But I just wish to be a top-flight tight end. My thing is catching the ball. I want to be the top guy at that.”

Winslow did not have much impact during preseason games, finishing with just 3 catches for 34 yards and a touchdown. His practice time was also closely monitored as Seattle tried to get Winslow to the regular season without putting extra stress on his knee.

The Seahawks thought that schematically they could create mismatches using Winslow and Miller lined up against slower linebackers or smaller safeties. Miller signed with the Seattle Seahawks before the 2011 season, but was stuck in mostly a blocking situation during his first season and never was much of a receiving threat.

”I’ve always had a blocking tight end and Zach is both,” Winslow said during camp. ”We’ll be far more dangerous.”

QB Josh Portis and linebacker Korey Toomer are among the 8 players Seattle is anticipated to sign to its practice squad after the pair cleared waivers.

Portis made Seattle’s Seahawks team last year as an undrafted rookie, spending the year as the No. 3 QB.

Toomer was the only one of Seattle’s 10 draft picks not to make the team. A linebacker from Idaho, he is a great fusion of size and speed, and he is going to have an opportunity to develop.
