Jameis Winston wants Bucs fans to ‘get excited’
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers notably selected former Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
However, the former Heisman Trophy winner has yet to lead the struggling NFC South franchise to the postseason with the Buccaneers not slated to contend anytime soon.
Nonetheless, Winston and the Buccaneers may have found somewhat of a solution as Tampa Bay previously hired former Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians to lead them into the 2019-20 campaign.
As a result of the new era of Buccaneers football set to begin this fall, Winston wants fans in Tampa Bay to be “excited” for the season and beyond.
“My message to the fans is just, hey, get excited. Get behind us,” Winston recently said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “We’re going to win a lot of football games. I know y’all hear that every year, but this year we’re going to show you. So I don’t got to say much.”
Although Arians is now officially on board in Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers’ roster surely won’t intimidate many in the always competitive NFC South division. With the New Orleans Saints currently serving as one of the best teams in the entire NFL, both the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers will certainly serve as legitimate threats come September.
While Winston is typically quite enthusiastic, it remains to be seen as to whether his Buccaneers can string together enough wins to become at least somewhat relevant in 2019-20 under the direction of the aforementioned Arians.
