Brian Winters had a quiet training camp. He came in every day with his hard hat, punched the time card, put in his work and left with little fanfare. But that all changed this week in Florham Park when OL coach Steve Marshall addressed the media Wednesday.
"I'm a Brian Winters fan," Marshall said. "In the 18 months I've been here, Brian has gotten better and better and has had an outstanding training camp. Hopefully he'll continue to do so."
Then hours later, head coach Todd Bowles said Winters was one of the most improved players of training camp.
"It's obviously a good feeling. It shows that my hard work is paying off," Winters said. "But it's not something I can sit around and brag about. I need to go continue to perform."
The 6'4", 320-pound Kent State product, who started 10 games last season, feels like he is in a good place to the right of C Nick Mangold. And Winters has a lot of respect for Marshall, a person he credits for helping him take a step forward this summer.
"Coach Marshall is a really good coach and believes in each and every one of us," Winters said. "He helped me a lot along the way and gave me confidence and obviously that's carried over."
