The only pro bowl he ever made was as an alternate when Gates declined to attend.
Not saying Winslow was elite. But the pro bowl has never and never will be an accurate assessment of the best NFL players.
I think even in 2009 it's fair to say he was a top 5 te. Especially considering freeman was forced to throw the ball to a hobbled antoniO Bryant and mike Clayton. Winslow was one of maybe 3 or 4 guys that had a decent season.
Good riddance but it's delusional to not admit that Winslow was good.
