There is a movement that is slowly getting around the NFL. Several high school and college programs have it and the Buccaneers are the latest NFL team to incorporate it. And that is virtual reality training for quarterbacks.
A few weeks back, Tampa Bay announced they would be working with EON Sports and use their SIDEKIQ football simulator program to assist in preparing their quarterbacks for gameday. That obviously includes rookie signal caller Jameis Winston.
But Winston is old-fashioned. He prefers being out on the field. Speaking on SportsCenter, the 21-year-old was asked about the virtual reality training.
“It’s a good thing, but I get more out of coming out here (to the practice fields) with the guys,” Winston said.
Winston also touched on how he has dealt with the expectations that surround him among other topics. The video of his interview on ESPN is posted below.
