Kellen Boswell Winslow (born November 5, 1957) is a former professional American football tight end with the Missouri Tigers and the San Diego Chargers. He is widely recognized as one of the greatest tight ends in the history of the game. He is currently the athletic director at Central State University.

He was drafted in the first round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the Chargers and played for them until 1987, when he retired from football due to injury. Winslow is frequently credited, along with Mike Ditka, John Mackey and Dave Casper, with redefining the position of tight end. Historically, tight ends were primarily blockers who also ran short pass routes. Winslow had the size to block and the speed to get downfield quickly along with great athletic ability to both make difficult catches and run well with the ball after the catch. Charger's head coach Don Coryell said, "If we're asking Kellen to block a defensive end and not catch passes, I'm not a very good coach ."

Winslow as part of Air Coryell led the NFL in receptions in 1980 and 1981, becoming the first tight end ever to lead the league in receptions in back to back seasons. He also exceeded the 1,000 yards receiving milestone in 3 different seasons, including setting a single season record for receiving yards (a record that still stands) by a tight end with a whopping 1,290 yards in the 1980 season. In a 1981 regular season game, Winslow tied an NFL record by catching five touchdown passes.
