Jameis Says He “Absolutely” Wants To Play With Adrian PetersonApril 17th, 2017
America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, waved quite a flag for one of the greatest running backs of all time today at One Buc Palace.
Yes, Joe asked Jameis about what he learned from training this winter with Adrian Peterson.
Jameis said Peterson’s work ethic was “eye-opening” and a real learning experience for him as he trained with Peterson at what Jameis said was Peterson’s facility in Houston.
Jameis wasn’t the only one there from Tampa. Most of the Bucs receiving corps was there, too.
“Getting [our receivers] around greatness, A. P. was able to work with us some,” Jameis said. “And just for them to be able to see what greatness is. It helps us. It helps build us. It helps motivate us to see a man so, a man that’s Adrian Peterson and let our players get around him and just kind of feel his presence and grow.
“Would you like to play with Adrian Peterson?” Joe asked Jameis.
“Absolutely,” Jameis replied. “I don’t know no one that wouldn’t. Again, it’s out of my league. I can only talk about how much I learned from him and how he helped me this offseason.”
So there you have it. Jameis wants Peterson and thinks he will make the entire team better, just by his presence alone.
Interesting times for Jason Licht, who likely has heard his franchise quarterback lobby for A.P — for weeks.
