Former Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow is running his mouth as his current Jets squad prepares for the Cleveland Browns this weekend. He has a lot of time to talk, probably because he doesn’t really practice anymore given the state of his knees.
“Who’s going to guard me over there? Nobody,” Winslow said. “That’s how I feel, and that’s how I play the game. That’s how you gotta play the game. You’ve just got to play the game, and that’s all.”
The 6-8 Jets are talking trash, and why shouldn’t they as they look down at the 4-10 Browns coming into their stadium this weekend? Sure, the Jets have lost four of five games coming into this weekend, but the Browns have lost their last five and eight out of their last nine.
Winslow has served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s rules on PEDs this season, but he’s played pretty well. In ten games so far this season he has 27 receptions for 319 yards. Not at all bad production for a 30-year-old tight end who has had numerous knee surgeries over the years.
We’ll see if the Browns can cover him this weekend, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he didn’t make some catches against a Browns linebacking corps that has struggled in coverage at times.
