Waiting For Next Year:
Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk found this interesting nugget on former Brown Kellen Winslow II-
“Free agent tight end Kellen Winslow says his career is definitely not over, and he already knows there are teams interested in him for the 2013 season.
Winslow said on NFL AM that Browns coach Rob Chudzinski, who coached him at the University of Miami, is interested in bringing him back to Cleveland. He also said the Raiders are still interested, and the Panthers have reached out as well.”
Winslow was selected by the Browns in 2004 (sixth pick overall). A motorcycle accident and an injury on special teams cost him 30 games of his first two seasons. Winslow caught 219 passes for 2459 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Browns.
The Browns have signed a pair of free agent tight ends already, though none have had the career that Winslow has had. Of course, if the Browns were interested in having a veteran TE on the roster who isn’t as fast as he used to be, they could have had Ben Watson who wanted to stay.
This would be a surprising move to say the least.

I thought Desmond Bryant was an underrated free agent going into the off-season. Bryant played well for the Raiders on 645 snaps last year, taking over as a starter week 10 after Richard Seymour got hurt and grading out as ProFootballFocus’ #7 defensive tackle, excelling as a pass rusher and holding his own against the run. In 2011, he graded out slightly above average on 596 snaps...
