08:08 AM ET 09.18 | With tight end Aaron Hernandez out for some time, the Patriots have their eyes open. Free-agent tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. is visiting the Patriots [Tuesday], according to ESPN. ... [ESPN.com] reports that a one-year contract agreement is in the cards (link here). The Patriots' interest in Winslow is tied to the health of tight end Aaron Hernandez, who injured his right ankle on the third play of Sunday's home opener, a 20-18 loss to the Cardinals. Winslow previously visited with the team on Sept. 5. ... The Patriots are committed to having their offense run through the tight end position, as they ran every snap in the season-opener at Tennessee with two or more tight ends on the field.

Released by the Bucs and cut by the Hawks. How much can he really have left in the tank?

It's hubris on the part of BB. He's gotten good years out of so many older vets before that he thinks he can do it every time. Some times it works and some some times it doesn't.

Hubris is the pride of the gods. When people have it, things usually do not turn out well.
