Kellen Winslow Jr.: 'I would take a bullet for' Raheem Morris
Kellen Winslow Jr. has had plenty of time to settle in with his new team in Seattle but he’s still talking about his exit from Tampa Bay.
Winslow, appearing in a YouTube video posted by new Seahawks teammate Michael Robinson on his Web site realrobreport.com says that he had to depart when new coach Greg Schiano took over the Buccaneers, according to Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times.
“Schiano came over there and he (yelled), ‘Toes on the line! Toes on the line!’ Blowing the whistle. You can’t laugh. You can’t joke around,” Winslow said. “So, I decided not to go to OTAs. They got my man Rah (ex-coach Raheem Morris) up out of there, and I was loyal to him. I would take a bullet for that dude. So, I had to roll.”
You can check out Winslow’s rant on the video if you would like. He also suggested that the Buccaneers “fired the wrong guy.” It doesn’t take too many guesses to likely figure who he meant. The guess here is general manager Mark Dominick. But Morris was the one sent packing and now Winslow is in a new place too. Perhaps soon he’ll stop talking about the former place.
