Bucs TE Kellen Winslow, 25, will be used extensively. OC Jeff Jagodzinski said he believes in widespread use of his tight ends, and, being a former tight ends coach with the Packers and Falcons, he is intimately familiar with the position.
"I've been very, very fortunate with the guys that I've had," Jagodzinski said. "I had Bubba Franks as a rookie (in Green Bay). I had Alge Crumpler (in Atlanta), who was as good a tight end as I've been around. Now Jerramy (Stevens) and Kellen.
"I use those guys a lot. Quite a bit."
For his part, Winslow isn't ready to make proclamations. Ask him about his potential to loom large in the offense and you'll likely get vanilla answers.
"We (tight ends) just have to make plays," he said. "We're just a piece to the puzzle."
Albeit a big piece.
