Now that Kellen Winslow II has been convicted on several charges, we are finding more information about him and how he acted during his time in the NFL.
The former NFL tight end seemed to have a terrible addiction to porn and made just about every teammate on the squad uncomfortable to the point that they avoiding him at all costs.
Teammates begged out of shared hotel room assignments with Winslow because he watched pornography and masturbated openly. “He showed the signs of being a perv, but clearly it has escalated,” says a former coach. “This is another level.”
Winslow became known to co-workers as a compulsive masturbater and pornography enthusiast, according to two teammates and three former team officials. He could count on having an empty seat next to him on any team flight, due to his ritual of watching hardcore pornography on his portable DVD player, according to those sources.
On one occasion, an equipment manager tasked with delivering gear to lockers after hours walked in on Winslow masturbating at his locker, two seats away from the entrance, according to two team officials familiar with the incident.
When pornography became widely available on mobile phones, he often watched it on his smartphone during meetings, the two former teammates said.
Cleveland Browns coaches Romeo Crennel and Terry Robiskie tried their best to mentor Winslow to change his habits, but he only got worse:
Later on in his career, after being sent to Tampa Bay via trade, Winslow acquired a life-sized silicone mold of a woman’s torso—complete with vagina and anus—to bring with him on road trips, according to one former assistant coach.
“He was infantile, just very transparent,” one unnamed team official said in the article. “With Kellen, everybody knew what he was about: video games and fucking.”
That is some type of porn addiction. That explains so much of what happened to him after his career and why he will be spending years in prison as a result of his rape case.
The 6th overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft was famously caught masturbating in the parking lot of a Target back in 2014 where officers stated he had “two open containers of Vaseline on his center console.”
Winslow claimed at the time he was simply looking for a Boston Market.
