One thing that the lockout enables NFL players to do is to get a little healthier than they were in the past. An article on NFL.com talks about how former Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow is finally starting to feel better when it comes to the knee pain he has had. Winslow has gone through five surgeries. He played through the pain in Cleveland but was dealt to Tampa Bay not too long after Eric Mangini was named head coach.
The article then goes on to talk about how Buccaneer fans were upset when Winslow skipped voluntary OTA's in 2009 to rehab his knee in San Diego. But then, unless I'm misinterpreting it, Winslow makes a dig at the former city he played in:
"And when I was in Cleveland, well, it was just Cleveland. I would rather not be there and be at home training in the offseason." Winslow has gone on record about his ire toward the Browns' organization, but he calls Tampa "the perfect place."
Hmmm. Well, I'd take one Joe Haden or Joshua Cribbs over a thousand Kellen Winslow's any day of the week.
