Bucs in tough spot with Winston
When quarterback Jameis Winston’s option year was picked up for this season. It was said that this season was to be a make or break year. Winston had to prove his worth under the guidance of new head coach and quarterback whisperer Bruce Arians.

So far this season Jameis has gotten a little better at not taking the avoidable sack, and getting rid of the ball instead of losing yards. Beyond that he has not been able to eliminate or even lessen his worst flaw of throwing multiple interceptions in the majority of games this season. I’ll admit that at times he can play like the very best in the game today.
It’s the other times that I’m covering.
He will finish this season having thrown more picks than in any of his previous four seasons here. In the London game, “the torture at Tottenham,” Winston reached a new low with five interceptions, and two fumbles. Let’s not forget that even in the big Rams win, one of his better games, Winston threw a pick-six. Thankfully it had no affect on the outcome.
I have heard it rumored that the Bucs are currently in discussion with Winston’s representation on a long-term contract. Let’s proceed as if this rumor is true (Until it is made official by the team, nothing is for sure.). Pure conjecture on my part from what I hear from those in the know.
