Gauging Browns' interest in Winslow
By Jamison Hensley
Tight end Kellen Winslow plans to play in 2013 and told the NFL Network that the Browns are one of three teams who have expressed interest in him. But The Plain Dealer refuted Winslow's claim, reporting (without citing a source) that no one in the organization has contacted him about re-signing with the team.
Who do you believe? Winslow has ties with Browns coach Rob Chudzinski, who coached Winslow both at the University of Miami and with Cleveland. But there's really no reason for the Browns to bring back Winslow, who has been more of a headache than a help. Winslow mentioned the Panthers and Raiders as the other interested teams.
The Browns aren't desperate for a tight end after signing Kellen Davis to go along with Jordan Cameron. There's a better chance of the Browns adding a tight end through the draft than free agency now.
According to The Plain Dealer, the Browns are planning to start Cameron, even though he has yet to prove he can handle that role. In two seasons, Cameron has amassed over 40 yards receiving in a game just one time. Cameron, 24, was a fourth-round pick by the Browns in 2011.
