The New England Patriots love looking for bargain bin tight ends.
Apparently it is not enough that the Patriots have two of the best in the business at the position in Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, but New England officials have sifted through their share of potential backups in recent months. Visanthe Shiancoe is the third tight end. The Pats employed former Titan Bo Scaife for about 10 days in the off-season, and they visited with Dallas Clark in the off-season as well.
But the latest tight end to get a look from the Pats, according to ESPN.com, is Kellen Winslow, Jr., who was released on Saturday by the Seattle Seahawks.
Winslow has been very well traveled in his NFL career since being a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2004. He also spent time with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
