Despite what former Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. said today on NFL Network, the Browns are not interested in signing him and haven't contacted anyone about doing so.
Winslow said today he's heard from the Browns and Panthers, but if he did hear from anyone within the Browns organization, it wasn't about them bringing him back for a second stint with the club.
Winslow, 29, is close to coach Rob Chudzinski, who coached him at the University of Miami and with the Browns. But the Browns signed former Bears tight end Kellen Davis last week, and are planning to start Jordan Cameron this season.
Winslow is looking to get back into football this season after sitting out most of last year with a knee injury. A former first-round pick of the Browns in 2004, Winslow enjoyed the best season of his career under Chudzinski in 2007, when he caught 82 passes for 1,106 yards and five TDs.
