  Every NFL team's most likely future Hall of Famer: Tom Brady, Aaron Donald among 17 'locks' Several prominent players made the cut, but a notable former league MVP did notUsing my interpretation of some of the unspoken criteria used when determining who gets into the Hall of Fame, I came up with a list of each NFL team's current player who has the best shot at being enshrined in Canton once their career is over. Here is the criteria I used when selecting the most likely players on each NFL team that could be considered a "lock" if their careers ended today.

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II has agreed to accept a 14-year prison sentence for raping a homeless woman and assaulting two other women. His sentencing had been scheduled for last year. But it was postponed because of court closures caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Winslow was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and spent four seasons with the team, being named to the Pro Bowl in 2007. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II agreed to a new plea deal calling for him to spend 14 years in prison for raping two women and committing other sexual crimes, according to multiple reports on Friday afternoon. Winslow , 37, is guilty in the rapes of a 58-year-old homeless woman in 2018 and of an unconscious 17-year-old, when Winslow was 19, at a party in 2003. Overall, he committed sex crimes against five women, including an assault of a hitchhiker in a parking lot behind a shopping center.

The 37-year-old son of San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame receiver Kellen Winslow could face up to 14 years in prison under his latest plea deal.

One of his accusers is expected to appear remotely and read a statement. The prosecutor is expected to also read a statement from other victims on their behalf.

Winslow in June of 2019 was convicted of raping a 58-year-old woman who was homeless in his home town of Encinitas, a beach community north of San Diego.

Jurors also convicted him of two misdemeanors — indecent exposure and a lewd act in public — involving two other women.

But that jury failed to agree on other charges, including the alleged 2018 rape of a 54-year-old hitchhiker, and the 2003 rape of an unconscious 17-year-old high school senior who went to a party with him when he was 19.

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II reached a plea deal Monday with San Diego prosecutors, avoiding a rape retrial that had him facing the potential of life in prison. Winslow pleaded guilty to raping an unconscious 17-year-old woman in 2003 and to sexual battery of a a 54-year-old The prospect of facing life in prison prompted Winslow to reach Monday’s plea deal before the retrial commenced. Prosecutors dropped the remaining charges that could have resulted in a longer sentence as part of the plea agreement. The deal came at the last minute as jurors had already been seated to

Kellen Winslow II pleaded guilty in a plea agreement to raping an unconscious woman and sexual battery against a hitchhiker. Sentencing is in 2020. Overall, Winslow was found guilty, or pleaded guilty to, sex crimes involving five different women since 2003, including rape , sexual battery and indecent exposure. In court, Winslow still struggled with his decision to plead guilty. He told Judge Blaine Bowman that “I pray to God” that Bowman would sentence him to 12 years instead of more so that he could “go home” to his family.

Winslow was going to be retried on six felonies including kidnapping, sodomy, forced oral copulation and two charges of rape in San Diego County Superior Court in November of 2019.

But he pleaded guilty moments before that trial was set to begin to raping the teen.

Under the same plea deal, the attack on the hitchhiker was reduced to sexual battery.

In exchange for his pleas, the court agreed to sentence him to between 12 and 18 years in prison for the rape and sexual battery charges and dismiss the others, sparing him the possibility of life in prison.

But his attorneys disputed whether the sentences for the crimes added up to 18 years. To avoid going back to court over the disagreement, both sides agreed last month to change the sexual battery plea to a plea of assaulting the hitchhiker with the intent to commit rape. That dropped the potential maximum sentence to 14 years.

Defense attorneys had said the sex was consensual and attacked the credibility of the five women who took the stand at the June 2019 trial, saying there were inconsistencies in their stories.

They also said he suffers from traumatic brain injury from playing football and a motorcycle accident that ended his career.

Once a first-round NFL draft pick, Winslow played for the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and the New York Jets. He earned more than $40 million over 10 seasons in the NFL.

His father, a local legend, was in the courtroom throughout the trial.

After Winslow entered his guilty pleas in November of 2019, he reached an arm out to his father, who responded by touching his fist to his heart before his son left the courtroom.
