Free agent TE Kellen Winslow joined NFL AM on Monday and mentioned that the Browns, Panthers and Raiders have all shown interest in him.
“I’ve heard from the Raiders, the Panthers, the Browns — with coach [Rob] Chudzinski up there,” Winslow said, via Pro Football Talk. “I think I could fit in anywhere, though. I’m a mismatch. I’m basically a basketball player playing tight end.”
- Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns do not have interest in Winslow and haven’t reached out to him.
Winslow, 29, was brought in by the Patriots, but only managed to catch a single pass before asking to be released. The market for tight ends is very limited at this point in the offseason, but Winslow has said that he’s finally healthy and ready to contribute. It’s doubtful that Winslow would require any more than veteran’s minimum salary and a team like the Raiders could really some help at tight end.
