REPORT: Jameis Winston To Return As Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2019 Starting QB

Buccaneers Jameis Winston

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to exercise a fifth-year option on quarterback Jameis Winston.  Following a season where Winston was suspended for the first three games of the regular season and with rumored changes coming to possibly the head coaching position and general manager, it’s being reported that any changes will have Winston in the fold for at least the 2019 NFL season.

Per Schefter:

Winston next will try to make history in Tampa, becoming the first quarterback the team has drafted to procure a second contract with the Bucs. No other former Buccaneers quarterback -- including Doug Williams, Steve Young, Vinny Testaverde and Trent Dilfer -- ever landed a second contract from Tampa Bay.

Winston will be heading into his fifth-year option with the Buccaneers, and they will have the chance to re-sign him, franchise tag him or let him go.
