The move comes in response to disciplinary reasons concerning DT Perrion Winfrey as it’s been recently confirmed by Browns coaching staff that the rookie DT will not be playing Sunday’s game.
Browns superstar Myles Garrett stated about Perrion Winfrey that ”At the end of the day he’s got to learn how to be a pro.”
