is looking to avoid regressing in his second season as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ signal caller. To help in that, he turned to taking care of his body in the off-season.

ESPN’s Britt McHenry had a very in-depth piece on the new diet and workout regiment of Bucs’ quarterback Jameis Winston. It maps out the road Winston took to securing personal trainer Tim Grover, who has trained guys like Michael Jordan for a living. McHenry talks about Winston’s diet, his relationship with Grover, and they’re striving for a goal weight of between 225-229 pounds.
Ultimately, the story boils down to one thing: Winston’s work ethic.
This guy wants to do any and everything he can to win in the NFL. He went to great lengths to ensure that he would have a proper off-season and not find himself wasting too much time, setting himself back come OTAs and training camp. The will, the fire, the passion that Winston has has boiled over into a full-fledged obsession.
As a two sport athlete at Florida State, Winston never had to worry about things like this. He went from throwing touchdowns to throwing fastballs. Baseball helped keep him conditioned and in shape come football season. He doesn’t have that luxury now, as much as the Rays could probably use him at the moment.
There is no denying that Jameis Winston continues to prove Jason Licht right in making him the first overall pick. The leadership and play on the field, the time in the film room, and now hiring the best personal trainer on the planet show exactly what so many of us already knew about Jameis; he doesn’t accept mediocrity. He is out to change the culture, change the perception of Tampa Bay Buccaneers football, and that means no down time. No breaks. No quit.
If seeing how hard Winston is working to stay at the top of his game doesn’t light a fire underneath some of his teammates’ rear-ends, I don’t know what will. Heck, I’d run through a wall for the guy and I’ve never met him. That’s the Jameis Winston Effect in full force. Is there anyone else you’d rather have lead this team? Quite simply: No.
