A day after ESPN radio host Jeff Cameron reported that Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was getting ready for a suspension, ESPN’s Adam Schefter dropped the bomb we’ve been waiting for anxiously on Thursday.
Schefter reported on Twitter that the league plans on suspending the Buccaneers signal caller three games to start 2018.
NFL is planning to suspend Buccaneers’ QB Jameis Winston the first three games of the season for violating the personal conduct policy, league sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 21, 2018
ESPN’s Tallahassee host Jeff Cameron initially reported Winston was bracing to be suspended - and he will be.
Schefter would add that there is still a possibility for even more games, or a decrease in the amount they initially plan on giving him.
The league has yet to notify Winston.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport has also reported on the suspension, adding the following:
In addition to his suspension, Winston must meet a certain criteria related to his conduct to return to the field. This suspension could come tomorrow, but next week is more likely.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 21, 2018
Then Mike Garafalo dropped two very important pieces here: Ronald Darby wasn’t in the car the whole time and there were electronic findings.

One thing to highlight: Ronald Darby’s backing Winston ultimately didn’t hold water because he wasn’t in the car the whole time, the NFL’s investigation found. pic.twitter.com/hd0wAsfSpS— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) June 21, 2018
