Still No Known Market For Jameis Winston

March 18th, 2020

Former Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston seems unwanted in American football right now as a starting quarterback, more than 48 hours into his first foray into free agency.

And the Bears traded for Nick Foles.

Yes, NFL coaches loathe turnovers. It drives them nuts. Jameis is feeling that trepidation right now.

Owners, who also make quarterback decisions, usually care far more about public perception than coaches, and Jameis’ past legal and league issues might be making some owners shake their collective heads.

America’s leading touchdown thrower and passing yards leader is not in demand, it seems, though their certainly could be negotiations behind the scenes. As Joe has written, this is historic territory in professional sports. Young guys who lead their sport in a major offensive category always find work the following season.

Of course, Joe believes Jameis will get at least a backup job somewhere, and he might get to compete for a starting gig in New England. But these are tough times for the Jameis camp, and for Jameis lovers, as the collective assessment of Jameis by team officials plays out before us.

Good luck (only the AFC), Jameis.

  1. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    So teams have either signed/Resigned or traded for

    Chase Daniel
    Jeff Driskel

    Yet the former #1 overall pick who lead the league in turnovers since he was drafted, who is a member of the 5,000 yard club, Banned from Uber, 5th Pro Bowl Alternate and great divider of this fanbase with his dumb play can’t find a job…

    Guess we now know what the rest of the league thinks of Jameis.

  2. Mister Positive Pete Says:

    looks at least like the Bucs read the market correctly

  3. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    Woah woah woah… former Bucs Quarterback? I thought he was “America’s Quarterback”.

    He’ll be lucky if he’s America’s Journeyman at this point.

  4. El Buco Realisto Says:

    In other breaking news……. Summer in florida will be hot!!!!!!!!!! And the current coaches will keep turning over the roster because it was not talented enough to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. MidwestBucsFan Says:

    No market for a QB who served a suspension for sexual assault *and* turns the ball over at a record rate? It can’t be?!?

    Clearly all 31 other teams need to….(cough)….check their sheet.

  6. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Former Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston……….

    The sweetest words I’ve heard regarding my Bucs team in a long time!

    JayMiss, if you’re smart….. and that’s a stretch, you’ll sign as a backup for Pittsburgh. Big Ben’s time is limited and it’s your best chance.

    ……and it’s a long way from Tampa.

    Check ya sheet and your ego…..and don’t F this up too.

  7. JameisTheBackup1of1 Says:

    In the game of musical QB chairs, the seats are filling up quick. Down to two, maybe – Chargers and Jacksonville. Would either even bother to bring Mr. You Betta Check Yo Sheet in on a one year deal? Chargers probably pass, and Jax looks to be in rebuild mode. Unless the price tag is low, Winston could very well be in “oh, crap – our starting QB got injured in training camp – call Winston’s agent” territory….

  8. MTM Says:

    Where’s all the FSU jock sniffers at? The Bucs were going to be a complete disaster unless America’s turnover machine was not resigned.

  9. Dapostman Says:

    Somebody will sign Winston to a cheap deal. He will get his opportunity. Right now his stock is down much like Tannehill’s was. Doesn’t mean it will be down forever.

    Maybe he even signs on to backup Brady? Right now Brady’s backup is Ryan Griffin I believe. Do the Bucs want to go into the season with RG4 as Brady’s backup? I’m sure they don’t.

    So Winston will probably get a backup gig somewhere. Then it will be up to him to take advantage when the opportunity presents itself.

  10. The Man Says:

    I hope he lands on his feet.

  11. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Well Joe, you finally gave them a Winston post to pile on….here we go….

    I think Jameis will find his spot after the draft. He will want to at least compete for a job so he will wait for his opportunity to do that, but he wont really know until the rookies have their teams.

    I think teams are reluctant to sign JW because he is so divisive and if you have a young QB starting with as much talent as Jameis has sitting behind him, well what happens when that rookie starts struggling? That just puts that much more pressure on him and you could break him.

    Jameis best bet is to go to a team with an old starter and wait for either an injury or that player to finish their career.

    It was bittersweet to lose Jameis as our QB yesterday as I’ve always been a huge fan and supporter but there is no universe where Tom Brady isn’t an upgrade over just about anyone not named Rodgers, Wilson, or Mahomes.

  12. Rob F Says:

    The bucs should try to get him to stay for reasonable if not above average back up money. I know it might not happen, but he’d benefit greatly from sitting behind Tom Brady for a season or three.

  13. destinjohnny Says:

    if Jameis was smart he would call Tampa and say I am in for 8 million a year.
    Ill learn under Tom and on the backside ill be ready for a long career.

  14. D-Rome Says:

    Joe, just an FYI it was Lamar Jackson that lead the NFL in TD passes.

    It’s no surprise to me at all that there isn’t a market for Jameis as a starter. It’s already been confirmed that the Chargers don’t want him and Jacksonville would rather have Gardner Minshew starting. There’s no way he can go up to New England and win. It’s an impossible situation for any QB in New England.

    I’ve been saying it since 2018: He’s a backup and a BUST! He’s the next Ryan Fitzpatrick who is also a career backup and bridge-the-gap QB.

  15. allhailJPP Says:

    Shocking whole league knows what we didnt know till now. he sucks ass

  16. LaMarcus Says:

    Sad times for us JW fans. Sad time for me as I think highly of JW and know undoubtedly that he gave us his all and never had a excuse for his play

    Forever JW will have a place in my heart. Last 5 years was the most fun I had with this team very fun next to our SB year.

    JW will land on his feet

    catcard gets it….the only way Jameis is out is if he prices himself out.

    Gee, why would anyone want to pile on d!ckhead?

    You and the other 12 Nuthuggers deserve ALL the sh!t that’s coming your way.

  18. LazyMoak Says:

    The suspense is killing me waiting to find out which team he will win a SB ring for, ya’ll know that ex Buc QB thing ya’ll kept throwing in the real Buc fans faces 😀

  19. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    LOL @ Rhealist trying to cling that the roster doesn’t have enough talent as opposed to his sugar daddy not being able to coach.

    Where is Mike Smith coaching this year? He asked to coach my son’s little league team but I told him we like to keep other teams under 30. He tried to punch me but he was 10 yards off like his corners.

  20. allhailJPP Says:

    @destinjohnny…thats about the DUMBEST thing ive ever read. you win. holy hell man.

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    He signs as the backup for the Tampa Bay Bucs.


  22. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    I guess this means….the Jamyth glass was always half empty….tired to tell you !

  23. Kord Says:

    Don’t think his past troubles off the field are holding him back, nobody wants his on field troubles

  24. Pewter power Says:

    Finally you can stop talking about Winston like he was some all world quarterback!!!! 5,000 yards are irrelevant, it was ridiculous and shows a lack of knowledge about what matters to win games.

    This is the best thing to happen to Winston in my opinion, after throwing a pick 6 says something stupid like check ya sheet I’m ballin just meant he didn’t think interceptions wouldn’t prevent him from getting paid. He’s learning and I bet the next time he’s under center protection will be his biggest priority, it should have been after 4 years but losing money and being a backup is all he needs to get his head out of his butt

  25. Couch Fan Says:

    I feel bad for Winston but im not shocked. He is extremely talented and I never believed he did the things he was accused of. However, anyone who thinks his turnovers didnt matter and he would be in high demand were just fooling themselves. Turnovers matter. Throwing a lot of Ints that forced us to pass a lot more than we probably wanted to, also throwing to the best WR duo in the league, inflated his numbers. The rest of the league wasnt fooled, nor was some of us fans. Thank you for 5 exciting years and best of luck to you Winston.

  26. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Jameis’ main competition in FA is Cam Newton….

    The problem is that nobody wants to pay big money for a backup……

    He also has the draft coming up an many would prefer to draft a QB as a backup or starter than to bring in Jameis.

    He will get a job… a backup…..for low money….I would say if he’s offered $10 mil from anyone….he should jump on it.

    We don’t know what the Mariota contract is….but that will be a good benchmark.

    Do tell why we “deserve” anything?

    Did we draft Jameis? Did we keep him on his 5th year option? Did we hire Dirk Koetter?

    No, what WE did is support our young QB. We supported a young man and brought him into our football family.

    I already posted I was wrong about Brady and guess what, I was happy to do it! A man can admit when he’s wrong but you don’t know bout that do you?

  28. chris L Says:

    i wish him the best but excited to move on with brady. turns out even i overestimated his market? looks like the bucs management knew what they were doing all along playing this game of chicken?

    this is unprecedented time in tampa and i truly believe brady will elevate the play of this team and demand more. suddenly the bucs are vogue and increasing their social media followers by the minute which is wild to me.

  29. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Yes….Cam Newton is not a FA…..but he is up for trade and the price would be cheap…..I don’t believe any of his contract is guaranteed and he only has a $2mil dead cap hit.

  30. thisisouryear!! Says:

    I’m convinced he’d have a place to compete for a starting spot if it weren’t for his off the field issues and the I’m ballin comment. Owners don’t want that stigma from their QB. You might get away with it with a less prominent position, but not QB.

  31. Adrnagy Says:

    Now , Bruce will collaborate with his offense to adjust to Brady ? What about adjusting last year with jameis ?

    Brady is coming down to Tampa to use jameis built weapon arsenal !

    Why hasn’t Evans. Godwin. David. Brate etc come out and supported Brady ?
    Bcuz Bucs did jameis wrong. !
    Only the two face one year wonder has said something. I hope we trade him.

  32. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    Saw this coming a mile away!

  37. Zwak Says:

    If there’s not place for Jameis hell yes we should try to keep him as a backup
    Don’t see this happening but that would be perfect!

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    The fact the Winston threads get way more traffic than the Brady threads just shows what a bunch of triggered dopes we have here. They can’t see they got a brand new supermodel GF, nope, they’re obsessed with their ex and gossiping about her (or him, who am I to say with the anti-Winston crowd).

  39. JimmyJack Says:

    No Morgus…….All of the NFL is deranged.

    I feel sorry for Winston. Really liked him. You can never question how much heart the guy had on the football field. Can’t say that about too many players.

    But facts are facts. And you gotta perform when the lights come on. For a brief second Winston had the whole City buying in. And then the mistakes that have plagued him continued. You gotta perform when the big lights come on and Winston couldn’t.

    He’ll get another shot. Hope for him it works but I wouldn’t bet on it.

  40. PhillyBuc Says:

    Heard a stat last night, of the Bucs 7 losses by single digits LY, Jaymiss threw 18 interceptions. Nuff said, that’s why he’s still unemployed

  41. Petty Officer Buc Says:

    This is like a bad breakup with a crazy girl, and JW supporters are the friends talking crap about you saying how you didn’t deserve her and she will be so much better than you ect.

    Meanwhile you are the one who upgraded instantly and she can’t even get a guy at closing time at the bar when its 2 in the morning. It’s clear who was holding back who. That’s what friends/supporters do. They comfort. Don’t fall for their propaganda. NOBODY will put up with the crap that Tampa Bay put up for 5 years.

  42. Sarasota Garey Says:

    If Winston came back as a backup, he could learn alot from Brady.

  43. JimmyJack Says:

    But Rod you are posting here too. And you villify others for it. You are a very very special type of stupid.

  44. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Winston is so great we could only replace him with the GOAT.

  45. miken Says:

    Never got why anyone thought he’d be a hot commodity. His market was Tampa or back up… I’m not sure the people close to him knew that. Anyways, I’m glad the roller coaster is over and Jameis needs to just find a roster with a good coach. Playing good qb is pretty damn hard and one day down the road, he will get another shot like Foles and tannyhill and will get paid… he just needs to keep the long view.

  46. Pick6King Says:

    At least we never have to read Joe’s idiotic ramblings about Jamoist being a Pro Bowl QB, America’s QB, Mr Excitement anymore. He must be in a deep depression. I’m loving every minute of it.


  47. ItzOK Says:

    Itz interesting because Teddy Bridgewater was the leagues highest paid backup at 7.5MM last season. The Bucs need a backup. Tom Brady is the oldest QB in the league and father time is coming sooner than later. Why waste a draft pick on a QB if Brady and the Bucs window is really only two years. We need OL, RB, Safeties more than a guy who wont play. Signing Jameis as a backup would be perfect fit for all. Unless Jameis gets the starting gig in LAC or NE then the best option for Jameis is to resign as Brady’s backup. He has the shortest shelf life of any other starting QB. Jameis admires Brady, he knows the Bucs offense and I still believe that the Bucs like Jameis. They just couldn’t pass up on Brady.

  48. killfish86 Says:

    Any other FA news? Melvin Gordon, O-line, Suh?

  49. Ocala Says:

    I think the Bucs should have signed Winston to a team friendly 2 year deal, unless they were able to get Brady.
    Well, they were able to get Brady so they did the right thing.

  50. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Is there a reason Winston can’t be the backup in Tampa?

  51. D-Rome Says:

    Is there a reason Winston can’t be the backup in Tampa?

    That’s like divorcing your wife because you found someone better in every single way and then making an offer to your ex-wife that she can still live in the basement.

    Let him go. Jameis is a bust.

  52. adam Says:

    first off, of course…he’s not that great and not worth the money he wants.

    Secondly, and i’m not advocating or hoping this happens in any way – i think he could be a back-up in Tampa Bay. Remember when he went all fanboy when TB12 came to RayJay?

    I hope that’s not what happens, but i’m not writing it off completely!

  53. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Top 3 places Winston might land: 1) Pitt 2) NO ( hoping for a Teddy like career resurrection 3) NE

    Been thinking about his time in Tampa all night. It simply was time…and I was a proponent. Brady is a fantastic deodorant for a stinky franchise.

  54. Lamarcus Says:

    Learned alot about our fanbase when JW was here that I didn’t even know exist.

    That this fanbase has some really shi**y ppl rooting for the Bucs and looks like losing is all they really deserve.

  55. 813bucboi Says:

    i dont feel sorry for JW but something smell fishy….

    joe might be on to something….the entire league wont touch JW with a 10ft pole right now…why?…

    teams including the bucs must know something we dont….

    GO BUCS!!!!

  56. 541BucsFan Says:

    ISSUE #1
    Winston’s baggage makes him IMPOSSIBLE to market: Theft, rape, assault, losing record, and historical turnover numbers. No fan base wants that.

    ISSUE #2
    He’s gotten two head coaches fired. No coach wants to take that risk.

    He’ll be a backup for a few years. Watch the faces of the players, coaches, and fans the second he throws his first pick.

    They have had scouts reading JBF “comments” for years

  58. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Winston returning to Tampa is the equivalent of a fired head coach taking a “demotion” to coordinator. Not happening…and it shouldn’t. The Pirate Ship has sailed…

  59. Pewter power Says:

    Winston would be smart to sign on as a backup, I know he won’t but wherever he signs make sure it’s with a team secure enough to trade him to some team that loses a quarterback to injury. There are no starting spots at this point

  60. JimmyJack Says:

    813 a day or two ago Joe put out a podcast you might wanna listen to.

    Very real chance realtionships inside the lockerroom we’re not all we were thought to believe.

    I could question About instons leadership all day with plenty of on and off field issues to point to. Like it or not leadership is a big deal for an NFL QB.

    With Brady we no longer have to worry about that.

  61. BrianBucs Says:

    When no other team wants your former starter to be their starter, what’s that tell you?

  62. Youngbucs Says:

    All I wanna say if jameis1of1 needs to give it a rest and leave or team and media alone the dude is reaching for anything he’s so irrelevant right now it’s not even funny he’s attacking the glazers now it’s everybody’s fault except winstons still Jamies was a free agent and can’t find a job that speaks for it self

  63. Waterboy Says:

    I thought 2 teams were waiting to give him 30 mil if he was released? Where are they now? Are they waiting to make the big announcement once the dust settles? Lol

  64. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Not sure I would want to be his agent right now. The agent’s game of chicken with the Bucs AND the rest of the NFL FAILED miserably.

  65. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    There’s a market for Jameis, but he ain’t going to get the same money as Brady. I bet Jameis turned down a one year prove it again contract from Licht and BA but turned it down, hoping to cash in.

  66. Totally Exonerated Again Says:

    I’m starting to feel bad for him. It was funny yesterday but dang he’s such a great dude that works his tail off. And I’m one of the no votes in every Jameis poll

  67. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:

    Jameis has made 45 million in 5 years

    Don’t feel too bad for him

  68. I’m a Tandyman Bucs Fan Again Says:

    We can’t take a chance on Jaymiss being a Backup!! God forbid TB getting hurt but guess who would run back on the field!! Yep the same guy that threw 30 and 30!! He’s had 5 years let him go back some other Team if anyone will have him!!! XFL may be #3’s Future!!!

  69. Snook Says:

    This pretty much answers the debate that has raged on there for quite some time.

    Winston is garbage and the other 31 teams seem to agree.


  70. bucsfaninoregon Says:

    Ding- Dong the witch is dead! Not quite most appropriate response, but I’m so glad this divisive issue is over. After watching every game possible of the Bucs since 1978, last year I found myself rooting for the next INT. Horrible way for a fan to follow his team. I was considering bailing out completely on them. Jameis has no one but himself for ALL this junk. Now let him find another team to eat “Ws” with. And, no, NDog and other FSU fans, he will NOT be the back up

    I would be ecstatic today if it weren’t for the fact that I don’t think we will see him until 2021. Please tell me that everybody is going to fill up Ray-Jay even if the virus starts to taper off. This after thousands of people in the big cities are affected.
    Now sign a RB, sign a backup (Gabbert?) and draft OL, DL, OL, DL, etc.
    Be careful Buc fans ( Ndog and the missing NOSBOS too).

  71. 813bucboi Says:



    i could see that….

    kinda like cutler….

    cutler had the talent but was a piss poor team mate and had 0 type of leadership qualities…..

    so many times this year, i saw bad body language from ME13, dotson, d.smith…but the biggest surprise to me was when i saw CG12 display bad body language after JW missed him on a 3rd down….

    forgot what game it was(i think titans) but after the play, CG12 didnt even look at JW and walked towards the sideline like,”im done”…..ME13 & CG12 walked over and started talking to BL while JW went to tom moore and CC…..

    seems like everyone started looking at him sideways once the UBER situation took place…

    oh well…good riddance…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  72. Clean House Says:

    I’m happy to stand up for JW.

    Fact- He led the NFL in Passing and had 33 TDS
    If that’s not talent, I don’t know what is

    The NFL is a big group think mob- reporters are fickle, phony and uninformed.
    The way this franchise treated him this past offseason is a disgrace.

    For this country and league, he fits an unwanted profile with his Alabama roots
    much the same way as the talented Kaepernick does with his unwanted hairstyle and political takes. People mocked him for eating W’s- they stole his childlike excitement for the game. I believe he has what it takes to win.

    Jameis is being blackballed by the mob pack mentality.

    All the beta males out there in the world need a punchline and a punching bag.
    Upside of his stats don’t lie. Dude played hurt for that scumbag Arians- and got treated like trash-

    Check your sheet is right


  73. THETRUTH Says:

    What but he threw for 5000 yards make him elite. He should be first choice on league cause he threw for 5000. Real people know he is average at best from America QB to America second string.

  74. Mr. Reality Says:

    who is Jameis Winston?

  75. Clean House Says:

    Jameis has a terrible agent letting these clowns walk on him publicly and not taking charge of the narrative.

  76. BacktaBucs Says:

    Winston as a backup is a distraction in the locker room. Gabbert will be back, Griffen out, and new draft QB in.

    Feel sorry for Winston? He’s made more money than most of us will in our entire lifetimes. He is adored by many misled people around the country. He got away with it longer than most could. Perspective people.

  77. #1 Pick QB 2 Cent Brain Says:


    You are as delusional as the Twitter Troll who wrote a book about Jameis.

    I’d love to be “treated” like that and be paid 45 million over 5 years and embarrass my team and organization with the Uber stunt/pay off

    Watch the all 22, he locks onto receivers, can’t audible to a different play and can’t protect the ball. Turnover differential matters in this league.

    His play did this no one else

  78. John Says:

    Did anyone truly believe that Winston was going to get some mega contract and ride off into stardom???
    Joe has been a huge supporter of Winston rarely seeing anything wrong in Winston either off the field or on the field. … Joe wrote plenty, plenty, plenty about the negative side of Jameis, but lots on the positive side, as well. –Joe … the silence spoken across the NFL ( as it relates to interest in “, America’s Quarterback” lol ( still don’t know where that name came from)) it’s quite loud….. thanks

  79. Bucsdelight Says:

    Black balled by the mob pack mentality? Really? Get out of here. He was an average QB and is having a hard time finding a gig. I’m sure he’ll sign on somewhere and be the backup.

  80. Jim Says:

    Chargers or Pats….still looking

  81. John Says:

    Winston? XFL …………….

  82. MadMax Says:

    Still using the Americas moniker on this wash out when we seriously do have America’s Goat now….come on man….

  83. No Risk It No Biscuit Says:


    Johnny Football

    America’s Quarterback


  84. Chris K Says:

    So every team in the NFL is wrong and Tmax troll and Ndog know everything. Got it!

  85. Cobraboy Says:

    Why is anyone surprised Winston was not high on any team’s list?

    I would be surprised if he was.

    30 ints plus 21 dropped ints will do that to a QB…not to mention the fumbles. The dude was good for 1.4 turnovers per game.

  86. Jmart2470 Says:

    I think its because he’s not good.

  87. solo nolo Says:

    I am not a Tampa Bay fan. I am a FSU fan who started cheering for Tampa Bay after they drafted Jameis. I always looked at Tampa Bay like everyone else does a looser franchise with looser fans (not showing up for home games). The decision to not resign Jameis confirms why they are losers. You decide to sign a 43 year old quarterback who is far past his prime ( this is why New England & Tennessee both passed on him) instead of the guy who is the future. Yes Jameis had a problem with turnovers but they were not all his fault. He had an average at best offensive line, no running game and a bad defense for the majority of his career. He has played for three different coaches. That is not a recipe for winning. Many people prejudged him due to the false rape accusation and the year late, unproven, me-too movement driven groping accusation. Many other people hated him because he is black as Joe has confirmed. Here is a news flash for all of the haters. Tampa Bay still has many issues to fix (offensive line, no running game game, secondary issues, and an old defensive line). Tampa will not win a Super Bowl with Brady and when he is gone in 2 years or less they will still be a loser franchise with looser fans. Meanwhile Jameis is still a multi millionaire. He will be signed by another team as a starter and he will be successful like he has always been (FSU National Championship). For all the folks who hate black people, especially successful ones just know all your hate is just fuel for our success and just like JW we will keep eating W’s. Peace out losers !

    Have you guys seen the comment Winston left on Brady’s Tweet? Classic Winston.

    I guess all the other teams are lead by racists also. Thank goodness someone at the palace wised up. Now please, find Brady’s replacement, preferably this draft.

    Maybe you should hang out with oneilbuc

    It’s Loser not looser.

    Anyways, the .05% of fans who have a problem with a black person are idiots. Jameis had his own issues that split the fan base. The same people who don’t like Jameis were saying they want Teddy to come to TB. Last I checked he was black. Also, Jameis hasn’t been successful, so your statement of always successful is false. He is mediocre at best. Where is he going to start? Jax? Cool, you can go cheer for them and the “looser” FSU team as well.

    It’s a fact that owners and players know a lot more than we do about his behavior both on and off the field. However that information is not gonna get relayed to the general public. He’s a head case. Read up on the Dunning-Kruger effect. Sums it all up.

  94. D-Rome Says:

    All I wanna say if jameis1of1 needs to give it a rest and leave or team and media alone

    I muted that idiot a long time ago. Every credible journalist blocked him and only fools gave that guy any airtime whether it was on podcasts or radio shows. I know he’ll read and he’s likely one of the perpetual Winston apologists that comment on here. He was never a Bucs fan and yet somehow he managed to delude a bunch of people into thinking he’s a good writer who knows what he’s talking about.

    I can’t wait to not see any of his posts when he talks about Mr. Unemployed, America’s Clipboard Holder, Jameis Winston.

  95. TB12 Save Us From JW3 Says:


    I know you like Jameis because, he gave FSU a championship but the misspelling is a bad sign on FSU if you went there or are you just a FSU bandwagon fan who never wen to school there but likes winning? Like 99% of their fans…

    Jameis will not be a starter at the beginning of the 2020 season, NO team is looking at him, how are you not seeing this?

  96. D-Rome Says:

    I am not a Tampa Bay fan. I am a FSU fan who started cheering for Tampa Bay after they drafted Jameis.

    I’m so glad to be rid of fans like you. Most Jay-Miss apologists were like you…defending the indefensible. Good thing 31 other teams in the NFL saw on film what most Bucs fans already knew, and that’s Jay-Miss’ B-U-S-T status.

    Best of luck to you while you root for your backup on another team.

  99. Bucsdelight Says:

    You wanna talk about bad O-Line, here is a ranking for you: The only concerns offensively for the Bucs are the offensive line, which ranked 22nd in pass protection (per Football Outsiders) and 17th in pass block win rate (per ESPN), and Arians’ offense, which often requires quarterbacks to drop deep and throw long. But it’s not like Brady isn’t used to a bad offensive line — the Patriots ranked 18th in pass block win last year and Brady still managed to play like an average quarterback on a team lacking weapons.

    So NE was just a little bit worse than our O-Line at blocking. So we are good.

  100. kyle Says:

    Dont let the door hit you on the way out Jameis. Im actually so tired of hearing the Jameis Winston apology tour spewed from the less than average 620 wdae noon show, The pat an aaron show. The two clowns actually sounded so sad and upset that their favorite QB was leaving. What are their credentials?

    These two clowns have been whining all off season for the bucs to bring winston back. Pat actually said today that he was “hoping Jameis wpiuld be brought back one more year, to see if he could create magic”. Is that the extent of their football insight??? Wishing and hoping for magic??

    How do the other 52 guys feel about hoping and wishing for Jameis to “get it”!!

    I applaud the Glasers, Licht, Coach Arians, and the entire staff for not settling! Thank you!!!!!

  101. Bucslifer58 Says:

    I dont know if Jameis can fix the int bug.However,if he does I wouldn’t want to face him in a playoff game.
    I still believe he will be successful.
    Watch,hes gonna light it up at some point!
    Best of luck #3

  102. Patrickbucs Says:

    Steelers are truly in cap hell, and have 2 solid young backups that got playing time last year and are low on the payroll. Jags just ate $18.5 million to trade Foles, cannot see either team signing Winston.

    Sure he will get a backup spot somewhere down the line or chance to complete. Maybe Chargers, can’t see the Pats either but who knows. Very low 1 year deal, maybe. He’s not getting starter cash this offseason at least.

  103. Bobby M. Says:

    Teams don’t trust him…..its that simple.

  104. Bucsdelight Says:

    Chargers have already said they aren’t signing a veteran QB. Doesn’t mean much, but they have said it. Maybe Miami will take him and draft a QB for him to sit behind. Who knows.

  105. Patrickbucs Says:

    Bucs delight:

    Didn’t hear that about Chargers, saw they may be interested in Cam. Think they are going the Browns route and starting Taylor and draft a QB with 1st round pick.

    Miami already has a great backup/starter FitzMagic! They will draft a QB early as well.

    JW may not have any leverage until later in year, who knows. Not my worry anymore, just been topics for 2 years.

  106. gambelero Says:

    For all we know he may already have a deal with the Patriots, but they won’t make it official until after May 7. With OTAs almost surely canceled due to the virus, the Pats save a 3rd or 4th round draft pick.

  107. Bucsdelight Says:


    It was an article on Out of the Tom Brady sweepstakes, the Los Angeles Chargers will plow forward with Tyrod Taylor as their presumptive starting quarterback.
    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Chargers are not expected to sign or trade for a veteran quarterback, per sources informed of the decision.
    Instead of adding the likes of Jameis Winston in free agency or trading for Cam Newton or Andy Dalton, L.A. will trust Taylor to be their veteran signal-caller in 2020.

    The news could signal the Chargers’ desire to draft a quarterback with the No. 6 overall pick or trade up to snag one. After the Cincinnati Bengals take presumptive top pick Joe Burrow No. 1 overall, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oregon’s Justin Herbert could be among rookie signal-callers the Chargers could pursue.

  108. Drew Says:

    Racism at the highest level… all these negative comments…29 interceptions club…Favre, manning..all hall of famers….got into female problems…Favre, manning and others….winston is a great quarterback with a terrible line..I like brady..wont last a full season with bucs…30 million…44 years oldl..bucs mortgage their future for 1 year…afterwards its a college quarterback.

  109. Mike Johnson Says:

    Funny how many Buc fans are enjoying trashing Jameis. I wonder what they will do when Brady goes down..? I just hope we have a reliable backup. because we will need him. And Good Luck to jameis. He gave his all to this franchise. I;m not worried about him. He will land safely somewheres. And it might do him good to be a backup for a yr or so. He is not done. He can still play and is passionate about the game. You never know, he just might come back to haunt Tampa one day. Life can be funny like this sometimes. Good luck Jameis. Only Losers trash their former stars. Only..Losers.

  110. Ivan The Insider Says:


    I seen many people posting that Jameis should become the Bucs backup and learn from Brady, etc.

    I don’t see a snowball’s chance in hell that the Bucs bring Jameis in as Brady’s backup.

    The organization has decided to MOVE ON from the Winston Era.

    They know if they sign Jameis as Brady’s backup that they run the risk of all the overzealous FSU/Jameis fans screaming for Brady to be benched the moment he has a bad game or if the team struggles.

    I just don’t see the Bucs putting Brady in that position — similar to how the Bucs didn’t dare put a good backup QB in the place behind Winston where he’d have to look over his shoulder.

    I think Jameis is now in a very, very tough spot. Teams are terrified of the turnovers. They also know if they bring him in as a backup to someone that their starter will be under extra pressure the moment that starter stumbles because their fans may only think of Jameis’ positives (in that moment) and think that’s better than what the starter can do.

    Teams may also prefer to take the risk of grooming a young QB prospect as their backup instead because they believe they can have a higher upside.

    The off the field stuff certainly doesn’t help Jameis’ case either in the now MeToo era.

    We could very well be witnessing Jameis on his way out of the NFL.

  111. Robert Says:

    The only ones that defended him were either racist, scum, FSU holdovers, clueless or all of the above. good riddance.

    It’s a new day in Tampa Bay!

  112. FairMinded Says:

    Would love to see him spend a couple years as Brady’s backup right here with a very team friendly deal after realizing how soft the market is for him. He would still be under 30 by the time Brady retires and hopefully would have learned a lot from the greatest QB to have worn cleats

  113. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:

    Solo nolo

    Are you insinuating that this fan base wouldn’t want Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes? Some wanted Brissett, some wanted Teddy B. So your “those who hate black people”shtick is tired and worn out. This is not the first black QB that the Bucs have had. We thought Freeman would be decent and he was- decent. Jameis at best was decent.

    When race is the only factor you consider, that makes you in fact the racist. And it loser, genius. Not looser. The guy made 45 mil from this team. Don’t shed too many tears, “looser.”

  114. Doctor Stroud Says:

    JW’s favorite team is the Iggles, and he will most likely sign there as a backup.

  115. Jean Lafitte Says:

    “America’s Backup QB”

  116. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:

    “I bet you wouldn’t say that to my face”, right after calling everybody else betas. Wow. Another tough guy. What a surprise.

    All of this because the Bucs signed a guy with 6 rings. Makes sense.

  117. Patrickbucs Says:

    Dr Stoud be interesting to see. Have to be a low dollar deal.

  118. stpetebucsfan Says:


    I think you have the best strategy for JW going forward. Beg the Steelers to let him back up Big Ben. Similar styles and Big Ben is as close to the end as Brady,

    I get the logic or desire to save JW’s bacon but he is NOT going to be a backup here. Too much money…too much water under the bridge…can’t even put his pic up on the stadium…and that’s a franchise QB? And in what world do we suppose TB12 wants to mentor JW…and talk about dividing the locker room along with the fan base…makes no sense. Doosh is right…go to Pittsburg.

    @Cunninglinguistics…..first you have tied ColonelAngus for the best moniker on this site. LOL And you analogy was entertaining, funny, and accurate.

  119. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:


    Brady takes care of his body better than most QBs, so him playing until 45 is not out of the question. Wasn’t too long ago somebody asked him how do you when it’s time to retire- he said when you suck. He wasn’t playing well at the time. I believe he got his 6th ring that year.

  120. Ivan The Insider Says:


    Exactly. Bucs aren’t about to divide the fan base by bringing Winston in as a backup. They’re chosen to move on.

  121. T REX Says:


    I said no Winston talk but since this article is about America’s great LOSER then I will make an exception.

    Memo to all the Winston knob slobberers…SEE YA!!!!

    Best day ever!

  122. donuts Says:

    Its early still…..I think Winston will be a Redskin. I think Cam Newton could be in play there/Skins too. Whoever loses that DC job gets the Chargers gig. The Chargers did say they were fine with Tyrod Taylor but that could be talk to drive down the price.

  123. sincethebeginning Says:

    I think Winston will end up going to Pittsburgh to back up Big Ben because Mike Tomlin’s going to think he can handle him and mold him into Ben’s replacement in 2 years. The biggest stumbling block for that is Pittsburgh ownership which already had to deal with Big Ben’s rape accusations in the past and is probably a little leery of having to take on another quarterback with some questionable off-field history.

    Vegas needs to really set up a betting line on this IMHO, along with where Cam’s going to end up. Right now I would go all in on Pittsburgh for Jameis as their backup. Big Ben is always taking risks and gets hurt every year and needs a backup to jump in there. I think it’s a perfect fit for him.

  124. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bring him back at backup money, unless you are planning to draft a QB early.

  125. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    This fan base is always divided. It won’t matter whether they bring Winston in as a backup or not.

  126. Bculaw Says:

    Exactly @buccaneer bonzai!! If he’s to be a back up, let him do it for 2 years here under the GOAT.

  127. Sharthappens Says:

    Winston is gone cowards. XFL material.

  128. donuts Says:

    No chance Winston is a Buc…..Brady wont have that clown in the QB room. Winston has history of being a divisive character…that locker room story will come out eventually. JPP or Lee will spill the beans.

  129. WHO 👁⁉️ Says:

    Folks, 2 days ago I told Joe and nDog that the Tom Brady era begins at midnight! Only a fool like Joe and nDog would continue telling the masses that Jamies Winston was a GREAT NFL QB, when everyone in the Tampa Bay Area, INCLUDING IRA K. Knew THE TRUTH about Mr. Winston’s past at FSU and With the Female Uber driver in Az. The NFL know Mr. Winston’s past as well. Based on Mr. Winston’s Past off the field problems (Go To to get Winston’s 2018 Supend. story in full), Mr. Winston will never play another game in the NFL ever again.

  130. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston will resign with the Bucs, be the backup in waiting.

    Will be great – and is the obvious easy call!

  131. SteveK Says:

    Doubtful Munch, but we shall see.

    I bet he goes to Washington, Chargers, or Jacksonville if I had to guess. All as a backup with a chance to compete.

  132. donuts Says: just announced anyone can subscribe for GamePass for free until June 1.

  133. Rod Munch Says:

    SteveK – Or he goes to the Pats and is playing in the SB in Tampa next year.

    Or worse he goes to the Saints to be Brees backup and Payton grooms him for two years, then at still just 28, we have a decade plus of him killing us.

  134. SteveK Says:


    They would be wild. I just don’t see Jameis going to a super bowl, but you’re right. You never know.

  135. Patrickbucs Says:

    My bet for sure is JW starting and winning a SB next year in Tampa lol

  136. Posey99 Says:

    Winston will not sign with bucs anybody who wants to bet I’ll buy you a New Jersey and in return I want a Brady Jersey. He’s a cancer and will try to still be a spokesman from the backup role. I’ll take cool collective Tom over eating W’s and acting like a fool

  137. T REX Says:

    We now have Winston deniers.

    Worst set of fans ever.

    GO AWAY!

  138. RagingBrisket Says:

    If Winston were half as intelligent and humble as he would have us believe he would sign a team friendly contract to back up Brady and hopefully correct his flaws learning from the best to ever QB. That would be the long term play for greatness.

  139. Buczilla Says:

    I’d take Jameis back in a heartbeat if he accepted backup money. I wouldn’t come back here if I were him though and If I ran the Bucs, I wouldn’t want him back. Best to go our separate ways, just like letting that cute girlfriend go, that drove you crazy for all the wrong reasons. If Jameis had only thrown 20 picks, he’d be our starting qb. It’s that simple because teams will overlook a lot of off the field stuff if you are worth the hassle. I wish him well unless it’s against us because I have a lot of time and emotion invested in this dude.

    Getting Brady here after losing Jameis is like your dog passing away in the morning and then getting laid by your hot neighbor in the afternoon because she felt your pain. I’ll miss him, but life goes on. 😜

  140. Crabby Fan Says:


    How bout Jameis to Jax?
    They’re getting rid of Foles and starting Minchew. Maybe they bring him in on a prove it year contract on the cheap.

    Just my 2 cents on where he might land now. Stays in Fl with no sales tax and the Jameis fans will be able to follow AFC games more.

    Go Bucs!!!

    If no one else picks him up. Sign Jim as a back up and let him learn from Brady.

  143. Oneilbucs Says:

    Bird a lot of yall just hates Jamies that’s it . Some of yall really don’t care if the bucs win or lose as long as Jamies is not on the team yall happy . Look I also know that some of yall really don’t want a black quarterback and I know what you’re going to say . I’ll take Wilson , Mahomes players you know we will never have . But Bruce Arians will leave this team just like the cardinals . And then all yall will be back mad but only this time the scapegoat is gone . And one more thing we still have to play the games . We have a 43 year old quarterback that can’t move with a weak offensive line and a trash running game . Brady looked bad the last 2 years but the bad part about is yall believe the national media and their excuses for Brady and guess what ain’t no number one defense and in Tampa to carrie him . Or you already know we can’t run the ball because we have a coach that’s not going to call run plays .
