Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. will certainly no longer be remembered by football fans for what he did on the football field during his nine year professional career.

Instead the former member of the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (who also had brief stops with the Jets, Seahawks and Patriots) is more likely to be remembered as a “compulsive masturbator and pornography enthusiast.”

After all, this is how he’s been described by former teammates and team officials. Winslow is the kind of guy who enjoys things like MrPornGeek’s porn sites and fap/jerk-off challenges on YouTube. Sure, he made the Pro Bowl in 2007, won the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end in college at the University of Miami, and left the game of professional football with 469 receptions, 5,236 yards and 25 touchdowns to his credit.

However that will all be overshadowed by 1.) his deplorable criminal acts and 2.) his penchant for watching porn on his phone during team meetings and also on his portable DVD player during team flights, according to Sports Illustrated. SI reports that he also: “watched pornography and masturbated openly with no regard for who was in the room,” while on road trips. As you might expect, his teammates didn’t want to room for him.

While this might seem funny to some, at least a little bit at first, the 35-year-old San Diego native’s inability to repress his sexual urges while in public has a much darker side. His sexuality has led to lots of anti-social, and even seriously criminal behavior. And now it’s taken an even more serious and severely violent turn, utterly destroying his life, as well as the lives of the women he hurt.

Winslow Jr. was arrested for possession of synthetic marijuana outside a Target store in East Hanover, New Jersey back in November of 2014, and he was reportedly masturbating in his car at the time that he was caught. His legal issues have persisted, and sadly, they degenerated into serious violent acts.

On June 10, Winslow was convicted of raping a 58-year-old woman, exposing himself to a 59-year-old woman and making lewd gestures toward a 77-year-old woman.

On six other felony charges, the jury returned deadlocked. The No. 6 pick in the 2004 draft and son of NFL Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow faces up to 3-8 years in prison for the rape conviction. He entered court that day facing 12 felony and misdemeanor charges.

  1. Kellen Winslow Jr is a very disturbed ad very sick man who needed help years and years ago. He knows full well what he is doing. He has been raping woman back when he was 19 and probably more than but nobody had the guts to stand up. People saw his very mentally disturbed acts and finally some woman came forward. He does not exhibit the signs of CTE and I pray that the next trial gets a smarter group of jurors who see the “real” Kellen. He should not see the light of day due to what he did to these woman, many of whom were in the lower echelon of society. He chose them cause he thought nobody would believe them if they did try to report him. Sorry Kellen they are by no means dumb. I applaud them and hope he gets life in prison. He is one sick man.

  2. Throw away the key. He is denying he has a problem. Where was his family? They had had had to know.
