Myles Garrett: Perrion Winfrey needs to learn how to be a pro

It’s unclear whether the Browns will let rookie defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey play on Saturday. It is clear that he has done something to get himself in trouble with the coaching staff.

The players seem to realize there’s an issue, too.

“I think we all have to step up and say something, but sometimes silence speaks louder than words,” Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said Friday regarding Winfrey, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “We’ve used our voice a couple of times and at the end of the day, he’s got to learn how to be a pro. [Coach] Kevin [Stefanski] took it into his own hands and he felt like that was the right thing to do, and I’m behind my coach’s actions totally.”

The Browns have been tight lipped as to the specifics of whatever caused Winfrey to be held out of practice on Friday for disciplinary reasons, and to have his status for Sunday in question.

“It was pretty common knowledge,” Garrett said. “And it was easy to see. It wasn’t like we had to bring it to his attention. It was just, his actions were very apparent.”

Unless a report emerges tonight or tomorrow morning as to Winfrey’s status, we’ll find out whether he is or isn’t active for the home opener against the Jets.

Last week, Winfrey participated in only five defensive snaps during a win over the Panthers.

    Well, if he’s playing on a Saturday, he’s obviously playing college ball — not the NFL.

    Be a pro man! Gotta take those helmets and swing it at the opposing QB!
    Didn’t you hear that it’s ok now…..I guess you just have to swing one with each hand and it’s ok and ESPN does not call for your arrest.

  3. “Learn how to be a pro” coming from the guy who used a helmet as a weapon and lied about being called a racial slur…

  4. College party boy got paid and wants to pro party.

    Out of the league soon.

    Make it rain.. while you can

  5. Garrett is in my opinion the very worst man in the NFL. What he did goes way beyond sports. What he said, the next day of course, to justify is physical actions of extreme violence, is just horrible. Horrible. The league suspended him for his violent behavior, but nothing for his much bigger crime. What did the Cleveland Browns do? Gave him s raise. Yep, those same Cleveland Browns.

  6. Whatever he did it’s because he’s seen other “pros” do outlandish and over the top BS and for the most part no consequences for their actions. So he probably figures “that’s what the pros do so that’s how I gotta do things”.

  7. Winfrey was a 4th round pick. He will swim or he will take the relatively small $$ he has earned, piss it away in short order and sink to the bottom, never to be heard from again.

    It is one thing try your best and come up short and an entirely different thing altogether to piss away your single best chance in life based on laziness and a bad attitude.
