Jameis Winston will enter the NFL with one strike against him based on policy

jameisJameis Winston has red flags, and with his past problems at Florida State, Winston will enter the league with one strike already against him.  At Florida State he had an alleged sexual assault that was virtually ignored for a year, but it will collide head-on with the NFL’s tough new personal conduct policy.

Based on that policy, which takes a serious look at behavior outside of the league, Winston already qualifies as a violator, so he arrives at the league’s doorstep with one strike against him. That means any misstep he makes as an NFL player could be seen by the league as a second offense, potentially drawing a punishment more severe than an initial six-game suspension, according to USA Today.

That is a huge thing to look at if you are a team in desperate need of a quarterback.  That strike against him could be nothing and turn out to be nothing. Maybe Jameis matured, but it also could come back to bite the team in the butt.

With that being said, what would your rather have? A quarterback who can get the job done and have off the field, or a question mark quarterback with no issues?  You be the GM!!!
