Linebacker Joey Porter apologized yesterday to anyone he might have offended over some crude remarks he made last Thursday, except for the target of his comments — Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow.
“I would just like to say it was a poor choice of words in the comment I made toward Winslow,” Porter said. “If I offended anybody, I apologize for that.”
Porter twice called Winslow a name considered derogatory when used to describe gay men.
“I guess how we used that word freely, me growing up using it, I didn’t think nothing of it like that,” Porter said. “Like I said, I apologize to anybody I offended on it.
“I didn’t mean to offend nobody but Kellen Winslow. Pretty much, that’s it about that.”
