Kellen Winslow is a soldier, traded to Seahawks

Kellen Winslow's trade to the Seahawks and an excuse to watch him be 'a ______ soldier'

Dec 4, 2011; Tampa FL, USA; Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow (82) before their game against the Carolina Panthers at Raymond James Stadium. The Panthers won 38-19. Mandatory Credit: Phil Sears-US PRESSWIREThis is not breaking news anymore, but in case you haven't heard, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shipped tight end Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks yesterday. The Seahawks then signed free agent tight end Dallas Clark. 

Winslow is one of the league's top tight ends and joins Zach Miller and Cameron Morrah in Seattle, giving new quarterback Matt Flynn a nice trio of big targets in the middle of the field. Winslow hadn't made a good first impression with new Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano by skipping the Bucs' offseason workouts. 

The Buccaneers will receive a conditional 2013 draft pick in the deal.

Clark is also one of the league's top tight ends, and this will be his first season playing somewhere other than Indianapolis. Last season was his least productive as a pro. With Peyton Manning hurt and Clark himself limited to 11 games, he managed just 352 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the lowly Colts. 

Frankly, it is probably a wash for Tampa Bay and an upgrade for Seattle. However, that is not what prompted me to write this post. Anytime Winslow is in the news provides an excuse to post this video. I'm sure you've all seen it already, but it really never gets old.

Now we all said and did stupid things when we were college-aged. Luckily for most of us, those idiotic behaviors are sequestered on our social networks, which the average person is indifferent towards. But for an athlete like Winslow, his "Soldier" speech will forever be glued to YouTube and embedded across the web. Lucky us.

But he'll mostly be remembered for his work on "Family Matters." Wait... wrong Winslow.
