Report: Bucs owners “on board” with drafting Winston

I’ve been reporting for quite some time now how sources closes to the Buccaneers have liked Jameis Winston early on in the process and how head coach Lovie Smith came away impressed following the Rose Bowl. We now may know the Glazers are on board as well. 

According to our good friend Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com, team owners are sold on the Florida State product.

After speaking with sources in Tampa Bay and around the league, we’ve learned that the Buccaneers’ owners, the Glazers, are comfortable with Winston, and they are on board with the Buccaneers drafting him with the first-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Sources say that entering the interview process, the Glazers want Winston. If he doesn’t do poorly in the interviews and stays out of trouble leading up to the draft, Winston will be the first pick. The Glazers have a huge desire for a franchise quarterback, and have wanted that asset for years. Some sources say that the Glazers believe that Winston is that caliber of quarterback, and they want him to lead a resurgence in Tampa Bay like he did at Florida State.

Several mocks and draft pundits from around the league have talked about how much of a better fit Jameis Winston is for Tampa Bay. All information that we have gathered has not gotten away from that theory.

From the accusations to the character concerns so many harp on, the final piece of the puzzle has been the Glazers. If the report holds up, there is no reason to not expect Winston in pewter.

[…] Not much more details were given but it could most certainly go along with earlier reports that ownership likes Winston. Difference here is we now know that ownership may be content with either […]

Relaxedmike the coyote It's a done deal Jamies Winston will be a Buc in 38 days.It will be a sad day. I just think that Jamies is going to do more harm then good as a Buc. Now it's just a matter of when. Believe me this is one time i wish i was wrong but i don't think so. But I'm a Bucs fan good or bad so i guess i need to just get use to it. But then again this is the NFL. so anything can happen. GO BUCS...

the coyote Relaxedmike  Do not lose faith in our Bucs or coaches!! Look, Strange stuff happens on draft day. I can't wait. Teams in the past have mortgaged their entire draft for one player. So it can happen. A team could give us an..unrefuseable offer. Watching the combine this morning and Mariota is quick. Much quicker than Winston. I though, like them both. I still believe we..come up from the cellar this coming season in a mighty way!! GO BUCS!!

the coyote said : Guest Report one year ago

Relaxedmike the coyote Yes if they don't find a Q.B. in F.A. then Glenneon will probably start. And yes your gut is right they will pick Jamies Winston. There is no more guessing who they will draft. It's going to be a sad day in Tampa Bay when the draft starts. As far as being in the basement I'm guessing we will be there for a while. I don't want to be there but now am guessing there was a reason that Lovie was out of work for a year. I'm losing faith in Lovie real quick now. He has been making some bad decisions as H.C. and I've always gave him the benefit of doubt but it seems to be getting harder and harder. I wish he would at least listen to Tony Dungy and not just about what Q.B. but about this team . Tony Dungy brought dignity and good character , class and talent to the Bucs. for many years.

the coyote Relaxedmike  I get this feeling Glennon will start the year off. And if we draft one of the 2, they will get a shot sometime during the season. My gut tells me Our Bucs are leaning towards  Winston. But..who knows?  We just might get an offer for the 1st pick which is just to sweet to turn down. Whatever we do, we gotta come up from out of the basement. We have been there for to long. GO BUCS!!

the coyote said : Guest Report one year ago

Relaxedmike the coyote I do agree with you. I always thought that the NFL. throws rookie Q.B.'s out there to soon anyway. So why not find a veteran Q.B. to a deal something like they gave Josh McCown just to sit there Franchise Q.B. just to learn. But I also think that Marcus will be ready before the season ends. He is very good, smart and will learn any system that he is in.

Relaxedmike said : Guest Report one year ago

the coyote I don't think the Glazers are all on board with Winston. This is all just..reading fodder and conjecture at this point. Our Bucs would do well to say they are high on Mariota. Whether they are or not. Because we know one team in particular is desperate to obtain him to the point they will do just about anything....like giving up mega picks..perhaps even another next yrs 1st rounder. Personally, I don't think either QB is an immediate savior for any team. Maybe down the road. Both of these QB's are sure to get a..hard hitting Warm welcome to the NFL They will learn quickly..this ain't college.!!

the coyote said : Guest Report one year ago

Very very disappointed. In so many ways. For the first time I'm lost for words. But I do NEED to say this: If Malcom Glazer ( RIP ) was still with us there would be know way that he would be on board yet. They haven't even had a face to face interview with any draft picks yet.

Vic said : Guest Report one year ago

My choice would have been "Mariota" hands down! I know this much, I became a "Tampa Bay" fan when my friend DE "Greg Spires" played for them, but if Tampa Bay goes with Winston or whoever and they continue to remain a LOSING FRANCHISE, I'M OUT OF HERE UNTIL MANAGEMENT CORRECTS ITSELF!!!

Relaxedmike said : Guest Report one year ago

The Bucs would be wise to say they are seriously looking at Mariota. Because we do know one team that desperately wants him and may mortgage their whole draft to get him. Its been done before. Anyways..I do not believe the Glazers are stuck on Winston. 3 weeks from now, Mariota will be no 1 again. Fellow Buc fans, lets just pray WE get it right with the 1st pick..whatever we do!! GO BUCS!!

the coyote said : Guest Report one year ago

I'm not sure how much I believe this. I know the Glazers tend to shy away from troubled players. I don't see them saying anything like this even if it was true I don't think the Bucs would tip there hands just yet. There is to much time before the draft and this would give them no leverage going forwards.

Winston just needs to mature. Not grow up overnight but make mature decisions off the field. Derek Brooks would help him in that part of his life and help him make the transition to the NFL.

TyTrill94 You're right.. my bad!

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan Jay glazer breaks way more inside news than Adam..... Like seriously dude? You're kidding right?

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 JayGlazer How is Jay Glazer the most trusted source? That's an opinion! #CmonMan

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan Uhm JayGlazer who has THE MOST CONNECTIONS has less than 1 Million. Your thought process isn't correct about this.

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 More followers = a more trusted source! Hence why 3.5 million fans trust schefters reports!

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 k

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan no reason to be rude and make smirk comments. I'm just stating my opinion. Followers don't = more sources.

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan absolutely but based off of what they already know they like him over Mariota. He still has things to prove he's just favored

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan this is based off of tape and speaking to people close to him. IF he does well in interviews he'd be the pick.

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE At the Combine they ask tough questions that you can't just ask somebody who knows the guy.. haha

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE You obviously know everything!

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE The combine is more about interviews than anything else! They haven't even interviewed him yet??

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE With JW being an instate player we have the ability to speak to people who know him personally.

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE ...... Most QBs don't even throw at the combine. You see what I'm saying? They wait until pro-day.

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE Look at the QBs there is only 1 worthy of a Number 1 pick because he's ready to start day one.

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE It would be retarded to pick your guy before the Combine! why have the combine then?

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE Never called them lies! called them rumours! Big difference! How would the owners pick their guy before combine??

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE He cover The Bucs exclusively for ESPN and takes pride in his job and not putting out lies.

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE plenty... Jim Irsay owner of the Colts did it with Luck. They're saying they'd like franchise QB.

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE How often do you trust the press? The press will report anything at this point. They're all rumors at this point.

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

the420bucsfan TB_BUCFAN4LIFE lol how do you think these guys get started? Pat Yasinskas himself has said the Bucs hierarchy like JW.

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE So you're telling me that the Glazers family are putting out info on who they want? How many owners do that?

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TyTrill94 TB_BUCFAN4LIFE just saying a guy who makes up his own blog is not the guy who's going to have the inside source to the Glazers?

TyTrill94 said : Guest Report one year ago

TB_BUCFAN4LIFE the420bucsfan lol why do you attribute followers to sources?

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TB_BUCFAN4LIFE paulboe3 I respect both of you, but at least give me some credible sources!

the420bucsfan said : Guest Report one year ago

TB_BUCFAN4LIFE & then go see who Walter Football claims as their source! Its DraftCampbell who has 6000 followers.. Glazer connection? NO!

rlaracue said : Guest Report one year ago

MikeDearlove said : Guest Report one year ago

GilArciaTBC Without inside sources, as a fan i'm left to "read the tea leaves" as it were. Just wanna see TB win some damn games.

MikeDearlove said : Guest Report one year ago

GilArciaTBC Since that isn't the case, it's likely if they go qb, and they will, it's Winston.

MikeDearlove said : Guest Report one year ago

GilArciaTBC Personally I believe if Tampa were leaning Mariota they would have hired OC w/ spread experience, and play to his strengths.

GilArciaTBC said : Guest Report one year ago

MikeDearlove Yeah I leave it up to you all to believe what you want ya know? I know who I talk to, I relay the info. Don't speak for others

MikeDearlove said : Guest Report one year ago

GilArciaTBC having said that i know you've got your finger on the pulse w/ the Bucs. Excited to see what direction they go in.

MikeDearlove said : Guest Report one year ago
