Kellen Winslow back in NFC South?

It appears as though there’s a chance tight end Kellen Winslow could end up back in the NFC South after a rocky ending to his time in Tampa Bay.

The Carolina Panthers reportedly have shown some interest in Winslow. The Panthers are in the market for a No. 2 tight end to play behind Greg Olsen. Winslow, 29, was bounced out of Tampa Bay last offseason after quickly clashing with coach Greg Schiano. He had a brief preseason stop with Seattle, but that didn’t last. He then appeared in one game with New England before asking for his release.

Winslow has a long history of knee problems. If the Panthers are going to sign Winslow, they’ll have to be convinced that he’s healthy and has his mind focused on football.
