Inspired by yet another famous flick, Winslow tricked out the Denali. "I hooked that up, with everything you could imagine done to it," he says. "I was doing 'Fast and the Furious' type stuff to it. I'm glad I kind of did it though, just to get it out of my system. I messed the Denali up. The guy who was working on it was an amateur and I just got references. But he basically destroyed the car, man, because of what I was getting done to it."
Winslow learned his lesson and says it's something he probably won't do again. "He put in Lamborghini doors, but they were bolted to the hinges so it wasn't working right," he says. "I pushed the seats back, so it could be like limo seating, the back seat I pushed all the way back to get a lot of leg room."
He rented an Expedition when the Denali was getting customized. He kept the Denali for his first three years in the NFL, while he was playing for the Cleveland Browns. After the Denali though, Winslow graduated to his current set of wheels, the Hummer.
Favorite road trip
When he was with the Browns, Winslow enjoyed driving with his wife from their Cleveland home back to San Diego to visit family. "Just so we could bring the car with us and the whole bit," he says. "It takes about four to five days."
These days Winslow likes cruising around Tampa in his H2 and is dedicated to the Buccaneers. As of week 13 of the NFL season, Winslow has 58 receptions for 633 yards and five touchdowns. The remaining home games for the season are December 13 against the Jets and January 3 against the Falcons. Fans who would like to vote Winslow into the Pro Bowl can visit: www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot
