Bucs QB Jameis Winston is looking for new representation, Roc Nation ready to make a pitch
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has had an eventful offseason and everything really hasn’t gone to plan but one thing he has had control over is making a change with his agent.
A day after Winston’s three-game suspension was handed down for a personal conduct it was also announced that he would be making an agent change.
Having fired agents Greg Genske and Kenny Felder, who primarily represent baseball players, Jameis Winston is expected to get pitches from agents this weekend, CAA, Athletes First (David Dunn) and Joel Segal among them.

Winston has heard pitches from CAA, Athletes First, and Joel Segal and now he is also expected to also hear a pitch from Roc National according to Pro Football Talk. According to PFT:
Ari Nissim is the Roc Nation agent that would represent Winston. From CAA, Tom Condon and Todd France would serve as the agents. David Mulugheta and Andrew Kessler, not David Dunn, would represent Winston if he chooses Athletes First. And Joel Segal would handle Winston on behalf of Lagardére Sports.
It was expected that Winston would switch agents even before the suspension was handed down, as he gets ready to try and get a second contract from the Buccaneers.
Winston’s current deal runs through 2019 and the Bucs have already picked up the option on his contract. Winston will probably get a second deal with the team but he hasn’t shown exactly what they have hoped for on the field, and off the field, it seems to be problem after problem.
Winston is going to have to show the team a lot this year after he comes back from suspension to make sure he is in good standing for his second deal.
