AFC Notes: Perrion Winfrey, Browns, Ravens

Perrion Winfrey

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski alluded to disciplinary issues for fourth-round DT Perrion Winfrey earlier this week and that was confirmed when the Browns deactivated Winfrey for the Week 2 game against the Jets. Based on comments from Browns DE Myles Garrett, the locker room is behind Stefanski’s decision. 

“I think we all have to step up and say something, but sometimes silence speaks louder than words,” Garrett said Friday via’s Mary Kay Cabot. “We’ve used our voice a couple of times and at the end of the day, he’s got to learn how to be a pro. Kevin took it into his own hands and he felt like that was the right thing to do, and I’m behind my coach’s actions totally.”

Ravens DC Mike Macdonald praised DL Justin Madubuike for what he has been able to do since being drafted by the team back in 2020.

“Yes, just going off what I’ve seen from Justin [Madubuike] since the year we drafted him, 2020, and then the offseason that he put in, the work he’s done, and all the things he’s been doing on the field over there,” Macdonald said, via “It’s just more of the same, so it wasn’t much of a surprise to me, but obviously I’m happy for him, to see him go out there and be productive like he expects to be.”
