Jameis Winston calls DeSean Jackson “a Bentley with a Ferrari engine”

He’s fast, is what Winston’s saying.

Here’s a new metaphor for you: DeSean Jackson is a Bentley with a Ferrari engine. That’s what Jameis Winston said in his press conference today, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers start their offseason program.

I’m not sure what that means or how that metaphor works. Why is he not just a Ferrari with a Ferrari engine? What’s the ‘Bentley’ adding there? Ferrari implies speed while Bentley mostly just implies luxuriousness. Is DeSean Jackson luxurious? Explain your confusing metaphors, Winston!

More seriously, Winston also noted that he traveled to Houston specifically to work out with DeSean Jackson. That’s good news, as Winston will need to work on his deep ball to take full advantage of Jackson’s speed. That speed can compensate for some inaccuracy, of course, but it helps to be exact with your throws.

We won’t know to what extent those two will click until much farther in the future. For now, though, everyone seems optimistic about Jackson’s impact on the Bucs offense.
