Jameis is strictly an NFL quarterback….At least for NOW

Jameis Winston was once a two sport athlete, but it will not happen anymore.  According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers put a no MLB clause in his rookie contract. 

Winston, who had played two seasons of baseball at Florida State, was selected in the 15th round of the 2012 MLB draft by the Texas Rangers and is eligible again to be drafted this year. The 2015 MLB draft will be held June 8-10.

The Bucs signed the quarterback to a four-year deal worth $24.35 million — including a $16.69 million signing bonus — on Friday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deal is guaranteed and includes a fifth-year option.
