FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Kellen Winslow Jr. has gone from facing life without football just a few months ago to being a key to the New York Jets' offense.

The former Pro Bowl tight end had a terrific debut with the Jets on Sunday, catching a team-leading seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in the 18-17 win over Tampa Bay while also serving as a dependable option for rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

Winslow played in just one game last year - one catch for New England - after being a late-summer cut by Seattle. The Jets gave him a tryout in May, signed him a few days later and he could end up being one of the smartest signings of the season - as long as he can stay healthy.
