Anyway, the Browns have begun training camp, Winslow's in attendance, but just like OTAs, he won't make waves, even though he thinks he's in line for a raise.
''I'm sure you guys probably thought I wasn't coming, but I'm not that type of guy,'' Winslow said. ''I don't want to be a distraction. My job is to help this team win and come out here and play to the best of my ability.''Well, he's certainly saying all the right things. Winslow's scheduled to make $13.25 million over the next three years of his rookie deal (or $1.25 million more than what Anquan Boldin will get over that same span). Is he due more dough? Eh, I'm not averse to it, but I'm generally pro-player in contract disputes, and more importantly, it ain't my money.
''You can't focus on the contract,'' Winslow said. ''I'm under contract. I just want to be a Cleveland Brown for a longer period of time, so my agent and the organization are in talks. My job is to play football.''
Interestingly, Pro Football Weekly speculated earlier this month that if the Browns start handing out raises, Braylon Edwards could be the first in line. He's definitely earned it.
In a perfect world, Winslow would keep his word, the team would extend Edwards, and then get to work on keeping Winslow in Cleveland for the foreseeable future. Not sure it'll play out that way, but general manager Phil Savage wouldn't complain if it did.
