Winslow, the Buccaneers’ tight end for three seasons, said in a Sirius XM interview that the team has said it would either trade him or release him. The Bucs, according to Pro Football Talk, have told Winslow not to attend organized team activities as they try to trade him.

Winslow, who will turn 29 in July, has had a number of knee injuries and the Bucs, Winslow said, are not happy that he is not working out with them during the offseason. Although Winslow’s right knee is chronically bad, he still has led Tampa Bay in receptions the last three years.

The Bucs brought in free agent Dallas Clark last week for a workout, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Clark was released by the Indianapolis Colts and has drawn the attention of the Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, where his former quarterback, Peyton Manning, now toils.
