Kellen Winslow, Tanard Jackson Moves Prove Beneficial For Bucs

The Bucs moved Kellen Winslow and Tanard Jackson in the offseason, and the decisions have proved to be correct.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded or cut a number of key players from 2011 over the offseason, and they have shown to be good decisions by the Bucs' front office and coaching staff.

Trading Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks and releasing Tanard Jackson were two of the Bucs major offseason moves. Bucs Nation says preseason events have proved those to be correct decisions:

As it turns out, these players had too many problems to be reliable members of the team going forward. Kellen Winslow Jr was released by the Seattle Seahawks yesterday, supposedly because he refused to take a pay cut. Winslow was too expensive and not good enough to make the Seahawks' roster. Tanard Jackson was caught doing drugs for a fourth time, earning him yet another indefinite suspension.

With Winslow and Jackson out of football for the moment, it appears that the Bucs are better off without the two embattled stars.
