Bucs head coach Raheem Morris has been pleased with what he's seen from new tight end Kellen Winslow, but both the head coach and player agree that he still has work to do as far as getting used to the hot and humid conditions in Tampa.
"He's getting used to running around in the pads," said Morris. "He's a phenomenal athlete. He's shown some toughness in the run game. I saw him try to get at [linebacker] Quincy Black last night. That was a nice little battle going there. He's getting used to this weather. I see his mouth open a little bit. I see an athlete that was running around in shorts and now is getting tired in the pads. That's good. We have to embrace that. He has to get back to his [Miami Hurricane] playing form when he was playing in the [heat] all the time. He went up there to Cleveland and got fat. Not literally, but he got fat."
PewterReport.com will have a full story on Winslow later today.
