The Browns' interest is no surprise. New coach Rob Chudzinski is tight with Winslow after coaching him at the University of Miami and in Cleveland. It remains to be seen if Winslow still is on the Browns' radar following their Kellen Davis signing.
Winslow "definitely" plans on playing in 2013, attributing his 2012 disappearing act to other priorities involving family matters. The key will be convincing the Raiders, Browns or Panthers that he's healthy and fully committed to football.
UPDATE: The Plain Dealer reports the Browns are not interested in signing Winslow and have not reached out to the tight end about a potential reunion. According to The Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns plan to go with Jordan Cameron as their starter, with Davis as the No. 2 tight end.
