Kellen Winslow’s Lawyer: Football To Blame For Rape, Sexual Assault

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II was sentenced to 14 years in prison last week for multiple rape and assault charges against five California women, and his attorney Marc Carlos now says football is mostly to blame.

It was the multiple shots to the head Winslow suffered during his playing days that caused him to go “off the rails” and commit these horrific acts, according to Carlos.

“Winslow’s victims include a homeless woman, a 54-year-old hitchhiker, a 77-year-old, a 57-year-old neighbor, and a then-17-year-old high school senior who went to a party and passed out with him when he was 19 in 2003,” relayed Insider.com.

Winslow said he will now seek help while behind bars, and that’s a good idea. What’s not maybe such a good idea is him telling The Associated Press that he has a “plan to tell my story” sometime in the near future.

Winslow’s 10-year NFL career included stops with Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

For the record, he never missed a game because of a concussion.
