Free-agent tight end Kellen Winslow did not fail his physical with the New England Patriots, as has been reported, according to two league sources. The Patriots were aware of the questions about his knees, but they did not fail him on his physical.
Winslow was released by the Seahawks last Saturday. The team originally acquired him in a trade with Tampa Bay in May.
Winslow has a base salary of $3.3 million for the 2012 season, which would have been guaranteed if he was on the roster for the season opener.
Winslow, 29, has caught 437 passes for 4,836 yards and 23 touchdowns in seven seasons and made the Pro Bowl while with the Browns in 2007. He caught 75 passes for 763 yards and two scores last season.
Hoomanawanui, who was released by the Rams on Sunday, had 20 catches in two seasons with the St. Louis.
