​How far has this former NFL Pro Bowler fallen?


​Last Friday we reported that Kellen Winslow Jr. was arrested on burglary charges. Then just two days ago ​it was revealed that Winslow's charges were far more serious than anybody could have imagined. He faces accusations of kidnapping and rape which could put him away for life without parole.


Winslow has now reportedly hired top lawyer Harvey Steinberg to defend him. Steinberg has a long history of successfully defending NFL players.

Some think his case is hopeless.

And many in the court of public opinion have already judged him to be guilty.

The 34-year-old former tight end was drafted by​ the Browns with the sixth overall pick out of Miami in 2004 and made the Pro Bowl in 2007. He was never nearly as good on the field as his father, Chargers legend Kellen Winslow Sr., but he recorded a solid career with the Browns, Bucs, Patriots, and Jets before retiring in 2013.


These criminal charges have further illustrated a man losing his grip on reality.
