After Jets tight end Kellen Winslow received a four-game suspension, he said he didn’t knowingly take a banned PED, but he accepted responsibility for the violation.

Now, Winslow has opted to rescind his acceptance of responsibility.

“I’ll be vindicated in the future and my name will be cleared,” Winslow tweeted during the first of four games he’ll miss.  “Be back with my team soon.”

He’ll be back with his team after four games.  The appeal has been resolved, and Winslow’s only option for blocking the balance of it would be to go to court and obtain an injunction.

Winslow more likely is referring to the possibility that he took a supplement that had been spiked with a banned substance.  Vindication would come from suing the manufacturer — and from winning.
