TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Monday began with Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Kellen Winslow dropping a bombshell, relaying a conversation in which Coach Greg Schiano told him his days in Tampa Bay were over.

Shortly before midnight, Winslow was sent packing, traded to the Seahawks for an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.

Meanwhile, the Bucs acquired his replacement, signing former Indianapolis Colts star TE Dallas Clark, who teamed with Peyton Manning to help annually make Indianapolis an offensive juggernaut, to a one-year deal.

Winslow, the team’s most consistent receiving threat during the past three seasons, said Monday on SiriusXM NFL Radio that Schiano told him the team planned to trade him.

Winslow, traded by the Cleveland Browns to the Bucs in 2009 for a second- and fifth-round pick, said he was told his Bucs days were ending in a phone call Saturday evening.
