The New England Patriots have added yet another tight-end to their plethora of players already at the position after signing veteran Kellen Winslow Jr. to a one year contract.

The move makes a little more sense today than it would have last week as Rob Gronkowski’s running mate Aaron Hernandez is likely sidelined for the next few weeks after having his right ankle rolled up in the Patriots loss to the Cardinals.

The former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns played in Tampa Bay and most recently Seattle before the Seahawks released him a week before the start of the 2012 season.

In seven NFL seasons, Winslow has 437 receptions for 4,836 yards and 23 touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl in 2007 when he snagged 82 passes for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns.

I used to joke the Houston Texans would be the first team to field and all tight-end offense under Gary Kubiak, but it looks like that honor may fall to Tom Brady and the Pats.
