2015 Cleveland Browns roster analysis: The running backs
Experience: 2 years
Contract status: Free agent 2017
Winston was claimed off waivers prior to the 2014 season after being released by the San Francisco 49ers. Winston has battled injuries since joining the Browns, resulting in him only being active for a total of eight games in two years. Winston finally received his first career start as a Brown in December against the 49ers, where he fumbled and sustained a concussion. This has been Winston’s only carry as a member of the team.
Winston rushed the ball one time for minus-eight yards and appeared in three games.
Winston was acquired by former general manager Ray Farmer, who highly praised him at the time. However, Winston hasn’t been able to be healthy enough to contribute on the field, and the new Browns regime will most likely look in different areas to improve the running back position.
