For months now, everyone has been speculating about the future of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, Jameis Winston. Even his own head coach Bruce Arians, who came to Tampa in part to coach Winston specifically, has said publicly there is no guarantee the 26-year old quarterback will be back with the team in 2020. There’s also no guarantee he won’t be back, either.
With the tag deadline drawing near, and legal tampering right around the corner, the frenzy stirred up by free-agency every year is about to make landfall in 2020. And thanks to a video published on the ‘Marks Media Cinematography’ YouTube channel on the night of March 9th, the only guarantees we have about Jameis Winston’s future, is that he’s working his tail off for whatever is coming.
Somehow, the video has fewer than 1,000 views at the time of this writing, but I get the feeling Buccaneers fans and fans of NFL teams with quarterback needs, will make the number jump within the next 24 hours.
In the video, we see what Bucs fans have come to know about their quarterback. Despite all the back-and-forth about whether or not Winston can clean up the mistakes, Winston’s work ethic will not be drowned in the sea of speculation surrounding his future.
The video gives those who watch it a close up look into the rehab process of his knee, as well as the injured thumb, both injuries he continued to play through in hopes of leading his team to their first playoff birth in Winston’s career.
Ace Hood’s “To Whom It May Concern” plays over the video, as the soundtrack, and undoubtedly a message to those who have been a part of the public debate surrounding his future.
The video doesn’t shed any definitive light on where Winston will be playing football in 2020 and beyond. However, the closing scene of the video shows the young quarterback, known for his big arm and passionate leadership style, calm, steely-eyed, and wearing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers t-shirt.
