The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are about to severe ties with tight end Kellen Winslow.
The 28-year-old Winslow made that claim on Siruis Radio Monday morning, saying he was informed of the Bucs' plans to either trade or release him.
He has one year remaining on his contract that is set to pay him $3.3 million.
Winslow routinely goes through his own workouts with a trainer near his home in California and believes not taking part of the voluntary workouts with the Bucs is one reason they don't want him back.
In his three years with the Bucs, Winlsow has been the top target despite struggling with multiple knee surgeries.
Under Raheem Morris, Winlsow was held out of weekly practices to ensure his health come gameday. He was also limited to one practice a day during training camp. That couldn't have set well with the Bucs' new coaching staff.
The Bucs brought in Peyton Manning's former favorite target for a workout last week. Dallas Clark could be signed as early as this week if the Bucs decide that's the direction they want to go.
Clark is 32 and has struggled with injures the last two seasons. After catching a 100 passes in 2009, he totaled just 71 in over the last two years.
