Winslow signs six-year contract extension with Buccaneers

INJURY-PRONE tight end Kellen Winslow has signed a rich, six-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team announced yesterday.

The deal, worth US$36 million with US$20.1 million in guarantees, is the richest ever for an NFL tight end, according to the St. Petersburg Times website (

"Kellen does some things with matchups I think that ... are really going to benefit us this year," Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski told the team's website (

"We can put him in different spots and move him around to get the matchup that we want."

Acquired from the Cleveland Browns in February, Winslow has averaged five receptions and 55.9 yards per game during his five years in the NFL. He missed the entire 2005 season with a knee injury.
