Tampa Bay Buccaneers Co-Owner Joel Glazer answered some very specific questions in a group interview about his Quarterback, "The Jameis Winston that has been on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since the day we drafted him has been a model in the community, a model in the locker room," Glazer said at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando.
"He's the first guy in the building, the last guy to leave the building, playing through pain, with injuries most people probably wouldn't play for. So he's done everything we were drawing up on the drawing board as our quarterback and the person we drafted."
When asked about the Uber allegations & if they impacted how he views Winston, Glazer quickly responded, "Absolutely not."
Bucs Head Coach Dirk Koetter said a lot of the same, ""To be honest, it is a little frustrating," Koetter said at the NFL owners' meeting on Tuesday morning. "But I really don't think about that a whole lot because, one, we have no control over it, and two, I'm not involved in it. I mean, I really don't know where that's at. I don't have any knowledge of any of that. It's just one of those things we don't have control over so we have to move ahead. I think it was important that we signed Ryan Fitzpatrick back, that's another guy we signed back that we haven't talked about. And we have Ryan Griffin coming back healthy. So, you know, very, very hopeful that we won't miss any time with Jameis but right now we don't have any control of that."
And, GM Jason Licht echoed the other two, "It's frustrating, but it's out of our hands. We're cooperating, and I'm sure they're doing their due diligence."
