Private Lessons From Jameis Winston

June 10th, 2017

Extra attention flowing to undrafted rookie receiver Bobo Wilson

Jesus “Bobo” Wilson isn’t the typical undrafted rookie receiver in Buccaneers camp.

Young Bobo has a friend with serious pull and a desire to help him somehow land a job as the Bucs’ No. 5 or No. 6 receiver. The friend is America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston.

College teammates at Florida State University, Bobo and Jameis had a bond there and it’s continued in Tampa.

Joe talked to Wilson about this on Thursday.

“Yes. Jameis has been helping me on my little details, the linemen assignments, techniques, little things like that, that’s going to help me with my game,” Wilson said. “It’s a private thing, like around the facility, like we might eat, sit down and talk, that kind of thing.”

Wilson says Jameis is still the same great guy he was in college, just more mature and more professional.

It’s playbook, playbook, playbook for Wilson when he leaves One Buc Palace daily, he said. “We got a new install every day. So you always want to know what you got coming into the next practice.”

Wilson was a four-year player at FSU, hauling in 133 catches. During Jameis’ final season there (2014), Wilson squeezed 42 balls for 527 yards and four touchdowns. Last year, a foot injury ended Wilson’s senior season with five games remaining.

He also can return kicks and punts. In 2016, his nine punt returns netted a whopping 155 yards and a touchdown, which you can see here via

Joe’s not betting a nickel on Wilson making the roster, but the young man is salivating at the chance to return kicks and punts in preseason games. If he can shine there, then he sure could be collecting a Week 1 paycheck.

    Jesus Saves!

    But if Bobo wants to “save” his spot in the NFL (on this team at least) – he will have to win the returner job AND look great at receiver. That’s a tall order for a UDFA. Hump did it so it is possible – just not easy or likely. Especially with Hump entrenched on the team and all the talent at WR now fighting for a 5th and possibly 6th spot.

  2. Pickgrin Says:

    Practice squad is much more likely for Bobo than making the final 53.

  3. Kalind Says:

    It’s between him, Walker and Dye, for the 5th and 6th spots. At least he’s a lock for the Practice Squad

    People keep sleeping on Freddie Martino.

  5. Joe Says:

    People keep sleeping on Freddie Martino.

    That’s because the Vero Beach Ramada Inn has wonderful beds.

  6. Gilhealy Says:

    Martino can play. Dude catches everything thrown his way. I think he makes it.

  7. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Martino can play ..not sure why all the Ramada Inn jokes..oh wait I do know’s Joe’s playground..I respect that..

    Just hope he has a chance to prove the doubters wrong..

  8. White Tiger Says:

    I’m thinking this is Jameis doing this young man a solid. It would be highly unlikely that this kid could unseat Humpheries on the depth chart…more than likely, Bobo will be given some great tape for an opportunity with a team in more desperate shape.

    Heck…if he’d come out last year, Bobo would have likely made the Buccaneer roster with this level of performance.

    Just demonstrates (for me) that this offense has already moved to the next level. We’re just waiting to see it on the field.

    Can’t wait!

  9. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    I hope my eyes never have to bear the site of Freddie Martino gracing our huddle

  10. Waterboy Says:


    Funny response Joe 🙂 But I agree Freddie Martino looks like a solid #5/6 WR to me. I thought he did a fairly decent job stepping in and performing as a #3 WR last year due to injuries. Now if you’re expecting him to be the #2 or #3 guy you’re in trouble but as a #5/6 WR I think he’s s solid guy to have on the roster.

  11. Waterboy Says:

    I obviously see Evans as the unquestionable #1 next season with DJax as #2 and Humphries/ Godwin as 3/4 and 5 and 6 is wide open for Martino, Huff, Wilson and several others.

  12. Fred E. Bucs Says:

    I like the idea of a guy who can return both kicks and punts. If we can keep the #3/#4 WR (Hump) that’s a good thing for WR depth.

  13. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    How’s that Canadian player doing?

  14. Mike30#1bucfan Says:

    Josh Huff anyone………..

  15. Bucsfan4life Says:

    I’ve watched martino play and I’m not sure why joe is so down on him either. I’ve seen him eat all of our corners up at practice and training camp. I’d like to see bobo make the roster. He looks like he would be the best return man we have

  16. Buc15 Says:

    @joe – hahaha I was thinking the same thing

  17. Bill Says:

    As a Seminole fan, I’m not excited about Bobo. Undersized, and his speed rarely showed on the field. Frankly, the FSU passing attack improved after he got hurt. I’m not a Bobo fan.
