Buccaneers staff met with over 75 people regarding Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston is looking like he will become the first pick in the NFL Draft. We are just a few days away and there is a report that came out of Tampa Tribune that said GM Jason Licht interviewed over 75 people concerning Jameis.

He led FSU to a national championship and won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman, but Winston’s litany of off-field troubles includes a sexual assault accusation, a citation for shoplifting and a one-game suspension from the FSU football team for shouting obscenities in a public place on campus. Licht, concerned about those misdeeds, said team officials spoke to upwards of 75 people to determine whether Winston’s actions were the work of a bad person or simply an immature one.

It sure sounds like Licht and the Glazer family have found their man.

“We’ve talked to a lot of people. ‘A lot’ is probably not a big enough word,” Licht said. “We are not going to talk about the process. All I’ll tell you is that the Glazer family, the head coach, the general manager, our staffs, we all couldn’t feel more confident about the process we have gone through.”
