A few days after Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was notified of his suspension, he has decided to officially part ways with his agents.
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported on Monday that Greg Genske and Kenny Felder were relieved of their duties. He would also say that NFLPA records confirm the report.
Jameis has been represented throughout his NFL career by Greg Genske and Kenny Felder, a pair of baseball agents who had limited football experience.
As it was explained to PFT on Friday, Winston initiated the move. It’s nevertheless possible that the agents were the ones who decided to move on. (We’re currently trying to nail that specific fact down.)
As Florio noted, the timing is odd. But if this has been in the works for some time, it’s really not.
Genske and Felder took Winston in as their client with dark clouds preceding his NFL career while at Florida State. So to assume the latest groping allegations would be a reason why Genske and Felder wanted to separate themselves wouldn’t make much sense. Why would they have represented him coming out of college?
However, on the flip side, they may not have done enough for Winston to help him through all of this. Either way, we may never really know.
