Is the end in sight? Is Kellen Winslow II's career with the Browns ending already?
Some have suggested it. I can't say for certain that they are wrong. But I do believe everyone involved needs to take a deep breath.
Winslow is as talented as anyone in a Browns uniform. He's selfish, egotistical and brash. But players like him don't come around often. It wouldn't be wise to cut Winslow now -- which the Browns would have to do since the trade deadline passed -- and assure themselves nothing for such a talent.
Better to wait until the offseason. Hopefully by then, things will have cooled a bit. Maybe Winslow will see the error of talking first, then thinking. Or at least maybe he'll learn that a filter is good thing to have.
If things continue to deteriorate and he continues to be a problem, then yes, trade him. But not to Bill Belichick for a fourth round pick.
If I'm the Browns, I'm far more concerned about the 2-4 start than Winslow's comments. Most of the Browns' players have sided with the organization when asked.
Maybe they're covering themselves. I don't know. I do know few can cover Winslow, which is why cutting ties with him is so risky.
