Former NFL TE Kellen Winslow was convicted of felony rape in California on Monday and faces life in prison.

Winslow was convicted of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman, which happened last year north of San Diego. The potential convictions don't stop there for the No. 6 overall pick of the 2004 draft. Winslow, 36 next month, also faces two more counts of rape involving a hitchhiker and unconscious teenage girl. He was also found guilty of indecent exposure and lewd conduct. Winslow has been in all sorts of trouble since falling out of the league. He's a sick individual.

This has to be related to CTE right? No other way to explain why a guy from a prestigious family would turn out this way.

KW jr. has always been a major douche.

Is it CTE related? Possibly. But, this guy has displayed odd behavior since day one.

That is a reckless assumption. Are you saying that no one from a prestigious family has ever committed an egregious crime?

I'd say it's pretty abnormal from someone with a normal childhood to go rape a 58 year old homeless woman. Only a guy with mental issues would go around committing such a heinous crime.

It's abnormal for anyone to do that regardless of their background.

I'm not justifying the action, just saying that's it even more sick that he did it on an old homeless lady given his status and upbringing which seems normal by all accounts. If he had those urges wouldn't someone in his position choose a more 'normal' (for the lack of a better word) target?

Again what he did was incredibly sick, but I just find it bizarre that he decided to take this particular route. I think this would suggest that he's got deeper mental issues than your standard rapist.

Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dalhmer didn’t have CTE.

I don't think it's unjustified to think CTE. He's sort of gone beyond normal deviant behavior.

"Beyond" stretches to his playing days.
Kellen Winslow Sr. was in town. The Cleveland Browns were planning on filming a video spot, at the team facility in Berea, starring father—the Hall of Famer—and son—the first-round pick and future star.

Dad was ready to go, but son was nowhere to be found. A team official noticed his Hummer parked across the street, in a guest parking lot. An equipment manager was sent to check the vehicle on the off chance Winslow Jr. was in it. The staffer found him there, in the back seat, masturbating.

From his early years in Cleveland (2004-08), to his final NFL season in 2013 with the Jets, Winslow became known to co-workers as a compulsive masturbater and pornography enthusiast, according to two teammates and three former team officials. He could count on having an empty seat next to him on any team flight, due to his ritual of watching hardcore pornography on his portable DVD player, according to those sources. On one occasion, an equipment manager tasked with delivering gear to lockers after hours walked in on Winslow masturbating at his locker, two seats away from the entrance, according to two team officials familiar with the incident.

During road games when the team stayed at a hotel and had a curfew, assistant coaches who performed bed checks reported on multiple occasions finding Winslow watching pornography. When pornography became widely available on mobile phones, he often watched it on his smartphone during meetings, the two former teammates said (nowadays, such sites would typically be blocked by the building WiFi). Teammates begged out of shared hotel room assignments with Winslow because he watched pornography and masturbated openly, with no regard for who was in the room, a teammate and an official said. Romeo Crennel, former Browns head coach, and former Browns assistant Terry Robiskie made efforts to mentor Winslow and impress upon him expectations of appropriate behavior, according to the officials, especially once Crennel became aware of a road-trip roommate’s pleas for a new assignment. The advice, apparently, didn’t get through. Later on in his career, after being sent to Tampa Bay via trade, Winslow acquired a life-sized silicone mold of a woman’s torso—complete with vagina and anus—to bring with him on road trips, according to one former assistant coach.
