“Of Course I Want To Be In Tampa”

December 16th, 2019

Future with Bucs?

Yes, after an NFL record was set yesterday by Mr. Entertaiment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, becoming the first NFL quarterback to throw 450 or more yards in consecutive games — it’s stunning to think Jameis is the first — a lot of chatter has shifted to Jameis returning.

And it seems Jameis wants to.

We all know Jameis will be a free agent this offseason, unless the Bucs sign and/or franchise tag him before the free agency dinner bell rings in March.

And while hot dog eating contest-protestingmock draft-scowlingL.L.

And after talking to Jameis yesterday, King learned that the fifth-year quarterback doesn’t want to leave west-central Florida.

The Bucs are suddenly dangerous. They’ve won five of six, averaging 31 points per game in that impressive run, and no matter who they play at wide receiver, Jameis Winston finds a way to hit them. On Sunday in Detroit, he became the first quarterback ever to throw for more than 450 yards in back-to-back games. The only negative is that Winston leads the league in interceptions (24) as well as passing yards (4,573), and he just doesn’t seem to be able to make those stop.

“The one thing I have to work on is protecting the football,” Winston told me from Detroit after Tampa’s 38-17 rout of the Lions. He’s right. If I’m Bucs GM Jason Licht, I try to do a bridge deal with Winston—maybe two years near the top of the market—while seeing if coaches Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich can coach the giveaways out of him. But I don’t let him go. Would you have let a bombs-away Matthew Stafford or Philip Rivers get away after five seasons? “Of course I want to be in Tampa,” he said. “But we’ve got to finish the season first. Whoever makes that decision, I hope it ends up with me staying.”

The other issue: With the Bucs 7-7 now, they’re unlikely to have a top-10 draft choice, and unlikely to be in position to take a top-three QB in the 2020 draft. It’s all lining up for Winston to enter a sixth year as Tampa quarterback in 2020, and rightfully so.

Of course, it takes two to tango, but Joe’s ideal take on Jameis’ new contract would be a two-year deal with an option for a third, loaded with incentives (key among them, fewer turnovers = more cash). Would Jameis’ camp except this? It’s a helluva gamble.

The Joker here in the background that might drive the price up on Jameis is Chucky. The next home game for the Raiders will be in Las Vegas and with Mark Davis flush with cash moving into his new state-of-the-art crib and all sorts of new revenue streams, Davis very well could push the cost of keeping Jameis through the ceiling.

All it takes is one serious team (Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Miami?) and Team Glazer is in a pickle.

King also knighted Jameis with one of his “Offensive Players of the Week” honors and cited Jameis for leading the Bucs through a “competency streak .”

    Add Chicago and Charlotte to the list. Those believing Jameis is begging don’t know economics and they don’t realize how good he is

  2. View from 132 Says:

    If Jameis wants a cap friendly deal to continue building here, that might work, but if he wants to break the bank, good luck elsewhere. Every mega deal for a QB leads to lack of cap flexibility to build a long term contender. It’s not an accident that Brady’s cap friendly deal has kept the Patriots on top for years.

  3. Ndog Says:

    I said last year they should have signed him, now we have lost leverage and this could turn out bad either from losing a QB standpoint or a overpaying standpoint. The great organizations have foresight and the bad ones get themselves in situations just like this. Like him or not we should have signed him last year when we had all the leverage, now will shall see.

  4. ou812 Says:

    He is putting up Ryan Fitzpatrick numbers. LMAO!!!! With just 1 win against teams with a winning record (RAMS). The Bar is so low now it is sad.

    Saturday we play a winning team down three receivers and VHGIII is coming home . Impress me Winston PICK up your team and win or get out of here!!!!

  5. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    He’s not going anywhere Bucs have franchise tags for two years.

    Love winning but he’s gotta protect the ball better or this teams ceiling is 8-8 or 9-7

  6. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Rex Ryan on Get Up said he wouldn’t be surprised to see the Raiders and Bucs swap QBs and draft picks this off season

  7. Defense Rules Says:

    For the right price, no player is indispensable in the NFL, because in the final analysis, IT’S A BUSINESS. For instance, if we franchise tag Jameis and then Chucky offers us Derek Carr PLUS their 2020 AND 2021 first round draft picks, I bet Bucs’ management would think long & hard about that one.

    (Hint: Carr’s under contract through 2022 for an average salary of around $21 mil per year … he’s currently completing 70.0% of his passes, has 19 TDs against 8 INTs). And just think what we could do with TWO EXTRA 1st Round picks, in addition to our own.

  8. Patrickbucs Says:

    Bucs have plenty of leverage with the multiple franchise tags they can use on him. Miami didn’t clean house to mega pay a QB imo.


    Take a look around the league and you’ll see a lot of very so-so starting QBs out there…..good ones in short supply…..keep Jameis but keep in mind the payroll will explode to keep Shaq Barrett, extend Chris Godwin and find some offensive linemen…..

  10. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    Jameis has so much potential. I’m just happy our team seems to have turned the corner. This offseason will be critical. I’m sure everyone returning for year 2 is only going to get better. I believe it was said by Godwin in the offseason that BA makes his WRs run a lot and he needed more train his running more.

  11. John Sinclear Says:

    Four years at $30 mil a year, no guaranteed cash up front, and a $500,000 reduction for each interception that is his fault alone?

  12. 813bucboi Says:

    i think he gets a 3year deal at 25mil a year…..

    seems fair imo….

    never won 10games….never been to the playoffs…..leads the league in INTs….

    we can talk all day about what he doesnt/didnt have but his TOs and decision making have been apart of the problem as well….

    he’s getting better and thats what we want to see…..him and the team improving as the season progresses……

    we’ll see what happens…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

  13. Dreghost Says:

    I agree with OU812, I’m definitely impressed with what Winston has done after turning the ball over but i won’t believe the hype until we actually WIN a meaningful game! This upcoming week will show you just how the Bucs stack up against a playoff team

  14. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    I love the fact that Buc “fans,” are going out of their way to crap on our QB while practically everyone else in football is recognizing him for his brilliant play as of late. Yards, Touchdowns, Third down conversion percentages and breaking the franchise scoring record with two games to play, doesn’t mean anything to these fools. Interceptions is the only stat that matters is a stupid talking point repeated constantly by the same four idiots that comment on this site. GO BUCS!!

  15. Defense Rules Says:

    Ndog … I agree with you in principle, BUT … Bucs had a whole new coaching regime coming in and needed a MAJOR rebuild. What we’ve mostly got are players on the FIRST contract and FAs on 1-year contracts. There are several 2nd contract guys here now on multi-year contracts (like Donovan Smith, Marpet, Dotson, Brate, ME13, LVD), but relatively few when looked at from the 53-man team perspective.

    Yes we probably could’ve gotten Jameis ‘cheaper’, but how many REALLY knew how Jameis would perform in BA’s Bombs Away system? Jameis is just ONE of several contract ‘challenges’ BA & Licht will face this off-season. If the Bucs don’t improve the quality of the TEAM surrounding Jameis, we’d probably get the same results next year that we’ve seen this year (outside looking in at the playoffs). We’ve got a LOT of players who we need to get under contract.

  16. Cgmaster27 Says:

    @ou hes not going anywhere you dolt, get used to it. I love how you trolls move the goal post every week. If we beat the Texans, youll just say they have a bad pass defense. I love that the thought of jameis being here for the future upsets you. I makes me so happy that you trolls are miserable.

  17. 813bucboi Says:


    who’s better right now?….JW or CARR?

    is CARR an upgrade over JW?….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  18. Runnerdoc Says:

    Carr isn’t close to JW. That’s the point. Jameis isn’t in a week negotiating position. He holds a strong hand.

  19. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    But you just KNOW that another off-the-field incident will happen. It is inevitable.

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    Go Bucs 72…I love it.

    You just put four idiots in a box and took a pee on them.

  21. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    We had a QB last year throw for over 400 yards three games in a row. And it wasn’t Winston.

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Morgus…nothing’s happened in 4 years now.

    Btw…not too many people care about the off the field crap as much as you do.

    Nobody ever posts about it anymore…..

    Nobody cares.

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Most QBs have the benefit of huge endorsement deals that bring in millions….Unfortunately, Jameis must rely almost entirely on his salary so I suspect he will try to hammer out the best deal possible.

    Really ? No Godwin. No Evans. No whitehead etc. and we are supposed to stack up against the best ??

  25. TheRamdog Says:

    Derek Carr – LOL behind our line he would turn into David Carr.

    We need a better O-Line this game showed what Jameis can do with good blocking. Look at the great QBs now and what is the commonality? Good line and good running game. Jameis has an average line at best and no-running game. I think opposing coaches look at it like let’s stop the run and make Jameis beat us and guess what he is.

    Also Leftwich is starting to see our limitations running the ball and he is like ok you want to put 8 men in the box and single cover all my receivers good luck with that. The most important signings are going to be Shaq “sack” Barrett, and Jameis after that Godwin should be extended and JPP. Also if we need the money Brate is always an option to release/restructure.

    I think in the Draft Priorities should be O-line, Safety, D-Line, RB. Would love if we could bring the entire line back and sign another edge rusher and another big man in the middle. We are going to get a low first rounder most likely so either trade back or draft the best of the 4 listed above.

    GO BUCS !!!!

  26. View from 132 Says:

    Carr with more cap room to spend > Jameis
    Jameis with more cap room to spend > Carr

    He’s a good QB. A top 15 guy. But there are others that could succeed here, so spend accordingly.

  27. Adrnagy Says:

    I know thru a close resource down in one bucs place …. shaq, jpp, nassib, jameis will be back next year. All of them ink 2-4 yrs deals.

  28. 813bucboi Says:

    im not talking about stats….

    im talking about decision making and accuracy…..

    when the game is on the line who do you trust more?…..who’s less prone to make a mistake…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  29. TexBuc Says:

    Redskins tried franchise tag twice and refused to commit Cousins. You think the skins are going thru some remorse for running him out of town? Every year the price goes up and once you tag the QB he will not accept less money than he just made.

  30. Kansas95Buc Says:

    Hey Joe,
    Tell me how you feel about Peter King lmao

  31. Allbuccedup Says:

    4 year 92 mil with 60 guaranteed. Each year he throws less than 20 ints 5 mil bonus.

  32. Defense Rules Says:

    813bucboi … Don’t miss the point. It’s NOT about Carr being better than Jameis. An offer like that would be more about is Derek Carr PLUS TWO EXTRA FIRST ROUND PICKS worth more than Jameis.

    RamDog … With TWO EXTRA FIRST ROUND PICKS you’d have some decent draft capital to improve our OLine considerably AND still improve our DLine with our own first round picks.

    I’m NOT saying take it, but offers like that would get serious consideration by the Bucs’ hierarchy.

  33. Adrnagy Says:

    You right. If they keep cousins. They could have draft to better team. But franchise tags are no good. Clowney, Earl Thomas , leveon bell etc. never workout and some players go elsewhere are make impact. I do believe licht will get multi year contract to shaq, jameis, nassib and even JPP and suh.

    Jpp and suh May look for a home and decent money to call it a career. Shaq doesn’t seem base on what he’s said is after big moneys. He’s happy he got the opportunity —— and he likes Bowles defense.

    Important note – the dline has built chemistry and they like to play with each other. Specially knowing Vita vea is here will make the decision easy for them.

  34. Buc1987 Says:

    Allbuccedup…so because he has contract incentives to not throw int’s that means he won’t throw an abundance of int’s?

    Bucs fans….sigh. lol 🙂

  35. Craig Says:

    We will be back here next year with the same arguments. Jameis will get a two year guarantee in a four year possible contract. It will probably be for somewhere around 55 million in guaranteed cash.

    Then we’ll start another year and Jameis will blow the first two games and give away a couple more before he remembers how to play football.

    It will happen because the last two games of this season are going to make him second guess himself and it will fester until next season.

    He really does need a QB whisperer to straight him out.

  36. Adrnagy Says:

    Question …
    if your licht , what’s your priority going into offseason sign the dline or QB ?

  37. 813bucboi Says:

    with a good o-line, defense and run game, any and every QB in the NFL would be successful…..lol…jimmy g perfect example….ryan tannehile….

    great QBs elevate everyone around him…..

    how do you think brad johnson and trent dilfer got a SB?…lol…they didnt elevate anyone around them when they won….they simply made less mistakes than the previous QB before them…..

    on the flip side, russell wilson has the seahawks at what?…10-2?….his defense is solid, but not what it use to be….he doesnt have 2 1k WRs…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  38. mark2001 Says:

    Sorry Joe..the team isn’t “in a pickle”. If Jameis plays hardball, they can franchise him, and have a year to come to terms or find his replacement. If he and the team come to a contract beneficial to both and Jameis can outgrow the interceptions, that works fine, too.

  39. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Barrett before Winston…

  40. Ineffable Dullard Repairman Says:


    I fail to understand your rationale behind a Bucs-Raiders trade. From the Raiders perspective, why give up two #1’s and your QB for a free agent? I’m unsure if a team can franchise tag a player and trade him. Perhaps you could enlighten me on that possibility as that is the only circumstance that would make your scenario viable …
    If the franchise tag and trade is possible, the NFLPA needs new leadership or a collegiate lecture from Collective Bargaining 101.

  41. stpetebucsfan Says:

    How is this for a “cap friendly” deal.

    JW takes one for the team in order to build an SB roster, much has Brady has done for the Pats all these years.

    But it shouldn’t be just JW gambling. His deal should have a bonus clause that pays him a % of any cap money NOT spent on the roster. IE The Bucs wouldn’t make money off JW’s cheap contract…but they could use it to increase cap space.

  42. Sleepy903 Says:

    Stop saying we are only winning against teams with losing records. They get payed to show up on Sunday like teams with winning records. San Fran just lost to the Falcons.

    If you beat the teams you’re supposed to beat you go to the playoffs ever 9/10 times. Look at the Bills. Look at Minnesota. If we beat all the teams with losing records we would have won 10 games this year.

  43. Huh Says:

    All the haters are like. “But he’s a [word redacted by Joe], and crap legs, and uber, and interceptions, and the only reason he’s good is because he’s throwing to Godwin and Evan’s, and oh its just a matter of time until he does something bad off the field again.”

  44. mark2001 Says:

    Bruce..you bring up an important point. It is important we save the franchise for Winston, in case we need it. That is the only playing card you have to make sure, as Joe said, we don’t end up in a pickle.

  45. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Buc1987, apparently you care enough to comment on it. And yes, don’t fool yourself. His off the field crapp is forever an issue with many many fans (and ex fans, because of him).

  46. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Hey Joe…now comments that call Winston the R-word get published with the R-word redacted? Hmmmm….

  47. buc15 Says:

    6 year – 146 mil – 73 mil guaranteed
    maybe throw in a 1 mil bonus for making the playoffs

  48. buc15 Says:

    6 year – 144 mil – 72 mil guaranteed
    maybe throw in a 1 mil bonus for making the playoffs

  49. Rashad Says:

    Chris Simms said this morning there is no way chuckie would trust Winston. Too many turnovers for chuckie liking.

  50. BucHead588 Says:

    Man Bucs Fans well Not all of them But ALOT of them are Jokes SUPPORT OUR QB#3JW We finally have a coaching staff a lot of y’all gave up on in the 1st half of the Season ya BA an Lefty look at this Offense Perriman had over 100 yards ReC an 3TDs an Jameis has this team 2nd in PPG an 1 in YPG BA said last week JW is the best deep ball passer in the League he is easily Top 10 QB with potential to be easily be top 5 next year when he Cuts down his INTs he’s a Slinger y’all it what they do his 1st 5 year stats are almost identical to Peyton he will be here a long time get use to it LOL look at Chargers who gave up on Brees you don’t give up on QBs who are doing what Jameis is because you can coach Ints out of him you can’t coach his Talent an Skills into Him

    I remember you saying that Ndog and I completely agreed with you.

    The media(including Joe) thinks its the Bucs decision on franchising Jamies or giving him a new multi year contract. Joe and the rest of the media are wrong…it is Jamies that will either decide on agreeing to a new deal with the Bucs or he will make the Bucs use the franchise tag on him.

    Jamies has the leverage not the Bucs.

  53. Adam Lakers Carolla Says:

    love the GLOVE…Jaboo doesn’t have the biggest hands (seems to affect him in cold games) and he was really spinning the ball yesterday with the GLOVE. That fracture may lead to him wearing the GLOVE permanently.

    and as always…Go Bucs!

  54. ocala Says:

    Jamies has the leverage not the Bucs.

    The Bucs should aggressively offer Jamies a multi year contract. Otherwise the Bucs will be in the same position the Redskins were in with their QB four years ago.

    The Redskins franchised Kirk Cousins in 2016 and again in 2017(which put them in Cap Hell). The Redskins ended up with a terrible roster while Cousins moved on to have great success with a Vikings team that has a great defense and great running game.

  55. Jim Says:

    It’s going to be an interesting off-season and for that I am grateful.

  56. July Joe Says:

    So, yeah, like every single thing the author of the Jameis book said, has been spot on the money.

    Who would’ve thought?


  57. Defense Rules Says:

    Ineffable Dullard … It was an EXAMPLE; a hypothetical situation created to make a point.

    “For instance, if we franchise tag Jameis and then Chucky offers us Derek Carr PLUS their 2020 AND 2021 first round draft picks, I bet Bucs’ management would think long & hard about that one.”

    The words FOR INSTANCE should’ve given it away. The point was … NFL football is a BUSINESS, and successful businessmen consider all potential options.

  58. Rod Munch Says:

    My ideal deal is a 5-year deal, with the first 2 fully guaranteed. So basically it’s a bridge deal, but gives the Bucs their starting QB if Winston continues to improve as I’d expect him to.

  59. Jeff Says:

    5 Years $135M $75M guaranteed. Meaty morals clause on top of it.

  60. Defense Rules Says:

    @Buc15 … “6 year – 146 mil – 73 mil guaranteed”. Interesting offer … averages $24.3 mil per year (although I doubt Jameis’ agent would ‘let’ him sign any long-term contract at those prices). But let me ask you … “What’s the impact of an offer like that on what the Bucs NEED to do in 2020 in terms of ‘filling holes’ to be a playoff contender? (IOW, which starters & key rotational players COULDN’T we sign IF we paid Jameis that much?). And how do you propose filling the holes that’d be left if we don’t re-sign our current starting FAs? (for instance, would it require that you replace Suh … a #2 pick in the 2010 draft … with a 4th or 5th round draft pick & expect the same performance?)

  61. Defense Rules Says:

    @Jeff … “5 Years $135M $75M guaranteed”. Another interesting offer. Same questions Jeff.

  62. Dapostman Says:

    So let it be written so let it be done.

  63. 813bucboi Says:


    seems you’re against JW signing a long term deal…..

    seems you’re more worried about the roster vs JWs ability…..i understand it….

    would hate to take 1 step forward, then 2 steps back…..

    but what move would you do first?….
    and what would you offer JW?

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!

  64. runnerdoc Says:

    I wouldn’t say Jameis has THE leverage, but he has plenty of leverage.

    The Bucs won’t offer him unless they believe he’s their guy. Arians really isn’t keeping a big secret regarding his belief in Jameis. Given that, it’s going to be a heck of a lot cheaper to pay the man now than pay him later.

  65. Defense Rules Says:

    813bucboi … Not against signing Jameis to a ‘long-term deal’ at all. But to me a long-term deal is 2-3 years, maybe 4. Have seen too many teams who sign a ‘franchise QB’ to a huge deal, then can’t surround him with the necessary talent & the team sucks.

    The beauty of the NFL Salary Cap system is that it functions as the Great Equalizer, just like it was intended to be. Overpay for one, two, three or more players and something else gets short-changed … resulting in a weakness that other teams exploit. Very few QBs can be surrounded by mediocre talent & still win. That’s what impresses me so much about Brady & Brees ‘team-friendly contracts’. They understand full well what it takes to be consistent winners in the NFL.

  66. stpetebucsfan Says:

    @Adam Lakers

    Interesting point about that glove. It was the best JW has spun the ball this year and his touch on the deep balls was excellent.

    The glove may stay even when the bone is healed!

  67. Defense Rules Says:

    813bucboi … Apologize for not answering your question about who I’d sign first. My personal preference would be to FIRST resign the defensive starters who we need to succeed next year … JPP, Suh, Barrett, Nassib … THEN make an offer to Jameis. Make sure though that we STILL have enough salary Cap remaining to sign our DEPTH FAs (Mincey, Adams, Nunez-Roches, Ryan Smith, Perriman, Barber, Watford, Wells, Auclair) PLUS sign our rookie class AND a quality veteran Safety & OLineman. We can always franchise Jameis if we need to, although I’d personally rather not.

    We’ve presently got 35 under contract for 2020, but I expect that’ll really be closer to 30-32 in terms of ‘keepers’. Add to that the 13 mentioned above, PLUS Jameis, PLUS our rookie class and we’d be about where we should be in terms of the 53-man TEAM to start the season next year. It’s all doable if guys don’t get selfish and try to break the bank. If they try to, find someone else.

  68. Bucsfanman Says:

    “Bridge deal”, that’s the way to go. If it’s me, no way do I sign him for a long-term deal. Catch your breath for a moment fellas.
    We are riding a high-high! We’ve reeled off 4 straight and we can attribute it to good complementary football: Offense, defense, special teams, and coaching.
    As excited as I am about our offense, it is our defense that has been the most improved.I think most people would have expected our offense to be this good, considering the last two seasons prior.
    We fell into this trap when our defense was so good back in ’16 when they played lights-out for 6 games.
    Call it “cautious optimism”!

  69. T REX Says:

    1 win against winning teams. One.

    It’s a mirage folks. It’s not real.

    Winston folds like a cheap suit when the chips are down.

    Just say NO!

  70. Ineffable Dullard Repairman Says:


    No need to get “defensive.” I was asking a question about the legitimacy of trading a player that had been tagged. Truly, I did not know and have yet to put forth the effort to find out. I was counting on your tireless research to have the answer on the tip of your tongue.

  71. Defense Rules Says:

    Ineffable … Didn’t mean to be ‘defensive’; I apologize. I was really responding to your first statement … “I fail to understand your rationale behind a Bucs-Raiders trade. … when I said that it was an example. There really was no ‘rationale’ per se; it was just a hypothetical situation to make a point.

    You did get me laughing though with the ‘answer on the tip of your tongue’ comment. That boat sailed a LOOONG time ago.

  72. MadMax Says:

    @Dapostman….nice! (Metallica)

    3 years, 20 mill per and if he shows hes matured enough to cut the dumb decisions, he gets extended after 2 yrs to the big one!

  73. Bucsace Says:

    Jameis definitely has got some re-up momentum going right now, but remember guys, we’re talking about the Bucs here. And if we’ve learned one thing about big decisions here, they almost always turn out badly. Therefore, let him walk

  74. MadMax Says:

    ^ na man, no way he walks…..he knows this is his place and WE know he’s our QB going forward….its just a matter of friendly number working….he knows he’ll get the best deal here but knows we need to retain that D thats gonna cost us….how friendly will he be?

  75. ocala Says:

    A lot of Bucs fans that post on here deserve to see what happens if they get their wish and Jamies goes to a team like the Bears or Panthers.
