It's a safe bet that Cleveland Browns fans would like to forget Kellen Winslow Jr ever played for the team. While he was quite talented during his playing days, he seemed to have some real baggage. Now that he's been convicted of raping one woman and exposing himself to another, it's clear it was more than baggage.

The former tight end appears to have some serious mental issues. Now that we know that he had more than just a few personality flaws, stories about just how odd his behavior was with the Browns are starting to come out.

Team meetings had to be uncomfortable

While this year's version of the franchise is having some problems with soap operas, it sounds like it was nothing compared to what was going on when Kellen Winslow Jr was around. When he was one of the best players on the team, he was also one of the oddest.

According to a new report by Sports Illustrated, teammates have told the publication that Winslow Jr used to spend his time in team meetings watching pornography.

There were also times when he would sneak into team facilities in order to...pleasure himself.

It appears that the former Browns' tight end had an issue with boundaries, or a lack thereof. Some of his former teammates say that he had no problem going at himself in front of anyone. This led to players requesting that they not room with him during camp and road trips.

The same report says that the Cleveland Browns' coaches knew it was an issue and, to their credit didn't look the other way.

Both head coach Romeo Crennel and former assistant Terry Robiskie are reported to have "made efforts" to take Winslow Jr under their wings and attempt to get him to behave better. It's clear that those efforts were all for naught.

From potential Cleveland Browns great, to washout

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Kellen Winslow Jr saga is that while most people think of him as a member of the Cleveland Browns, he actually spent most of his career elsewhere.

After a rookie season where he had very little impact and then having to sit out his second year with an ACL injury, he burst onto the scene in 2006.

Back-to-back seasons with more than 80 catches allowed Winslow to look as though he was about to become one of the best tight ends to play the game. It was during this stretch where he also started to show some cracks. This is when he gave his infamous "I'm a soldier" speech.

After a 43 catch season in 2008, he moved onto the Tampa Bay Bucs. He continued to play very well there, catching at least 60 passes a season. The former Cleveland Browns player then fell off a cliff. In 2012, he spent one season with New England, playing in one game and catching one pass. His final NFL season was 2013, where he played in New York. He played in 12 games for the Jets, catching 31 passes.
