#Bucs have picked up the fifth year option of $20.922-million for QB Jameis Winston. Guaranteed against injury.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) April 17, 2018
Winston is still being investigated by the NFL for an alleged incident in Arizona in 2016 after an Uber driver accused Winston of groping her crotch during a ride. Winston denied the allegations, and on Monday said that the NFL has yet to contact him in regards to the information. It's worth noting that the option is only guaranteed for injury, and the Bucs can still cut Winston with no penalty should the NFL find wrongdoing on his part.
