Winston was asked about Jarrett's quote on Wednesday.
"That was just me having fun with my baseball teammates," Winston said. "I actually was playing baseball at Clemson, so that was a joke inside us. The next day I went out to eat with Chad KellyChad Kelly

View Full Profile, the Clemson quarterback at the time. I have some friends on the Clemson football team. That was a joke in between us players, but some things get blown out of proportion and make it seem like a bigger deal than what it was. It's actually a competitive atmosphere. That's what you want, man. We need more football players that want to compete. If Clemson isn't going to come here and compete, we're not going to play them. If we don't go out and compete, there's no reason for Clemson to want to play us. It's all a competitive atmosphere. What I did yesterday, that was a selfish act. But that was about competitiveness, because I'm a football player and I compete."
