Winslow joined the New York Jets as a free agent in June and immediately made a positive impact on the team. In October he was suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. It is unclear what effect this will have on his status as an NFL player going forward. Winslow ended the 2013 season with 31 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns.
