I just came across this Tweet. Could Kellen Winslow Jr. be headed to the Jets?

EDIT: Adam Schefter confirms the Jets interest in the 29-year old.

Winslow, the 6th overall pick in the 2004 draft, has always been regarded as more of a pass catcher than a blocker. He played just four snaps with the Patriots last year, catching one pass, but averaged over 70 catches per season with the Bucs in the three years prior to that, including 75 in 2011.
John Idzik’s Seahawks traded for Winslow last May, but he was a camp cutdown when he refused to take a pay cut. Other than his brief appearance in New England, he was out of the league last year
