Despite his suspension this season and also some inconsistent play, the Buccaneers genuinely believe that Winston could be the correct person for the job and the right quarterback to secure supporting, according to sources.
Winston is 24 yrs old, he is expected to make $20 million second season, and also the Bucs don’t believe that they can get anybody who’s better than the former No. 1 overall selection.
Winston second will decide to make an effort to make history in Tampa, becoming the first quarterback that the team has drafted to procure another contract with the Bucs. No other former Buccaneers quarterback — including Doug Williams, Steve Young, Vinny Testaverde and Trent Dilfer — landed another contract in Tampa Bay.
Winston will soon be heading into his fifth-year option with the Buccaneers, and they will have the chance to re sign him, franchise label him or let him go.
Winston enters Sunday’s season finale against Atlanta with 2,647 yards, 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 10 games this season, including eight starts. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner was suspended for the summer season’s first three games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy — a suspension which stemmed in an allegation which Winston groped a lady Uber motorist in 2016.
