Bruce Arians denies report Buccaneers are bringing back Jameis Winston

Despite NFL Network Ian Rapoport’s report on Saturday, Bucs not settled on future of quarterback

NFL: Houston Texans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone is weighing in on whether or not Jameis Winston should be or will be coming back to quarterback the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 and beyond. Hell, even if he comes back next season, there’s no guarantee the team will be committed to the high-low star quarterback beyond next year.

On Saturday morning however, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported the Bucs would be bringing back Winston on NFL Game Day Kickoff.

In a perfect world, that would be the end of it. Winston is coming back to the Bucs in 2020. Now to figure out franchise or transition tag status.

Following the team’s 23-20 loss to the Houston Texans though, head coach Bruce Arians held strong to his year-long assertion he would not be making his decision on whether or not Winston as the quarterback he wanted moving forward, until the end of the season.

The 7-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Atlanta Falcons next weekend in their season finale. It’ll be the last game for both NFC South rivals, as neither will make the playoffs. It’ll also mark the beginning of an extremely important off-season for both teams as the Bucs decide the direction of their quarterback position and the Falcons ponder a move with their coaching staff.

So, it seems now is as good a time as ever to ask Bucs fans: Do you want Jameis Winston as the quarterback for your Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020?


Do you want Jameis Winston back in 2020?
