Winslow experiment over
RENTON, Wash. — Kellen Winslow was released by Seattle on Saturday. Winslow was scheduled to make $3.3 million in base salary in 2012, following his trade from Tampa Bay to Seattle in May. Seattle moved quickly to fill Winslow’s spot by agreeing to terms with former Cleveland tight end Evan Moore, who was released by the Browns on Friday. Moore caught 34 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns a season ago for Cleveland.
