Bucs insider: Jameis Winston suspension rumor ‘pure spin’

By Jesse Reed

On Wednesday evening, a rumor emerged that Jameis Winston and his camp were bracing for a multiple-game suspension stemming from allegations he improperly touched a female Uber driver.

The source for this rumor is ESPN Radio host Jeff Cameron, who has had past dealings with Winston and his camp. Explaining why he is bracing for a suspension, Cameron said, Winston will be suspended due to “a failure to report.”

One person who absolutely does not buy this is respected Tampa Bay Buccaneers insider Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. On Thursday morning, he took to Twitter in an effort to explain why he doesn’t believe the NFL will levy a multiple-game suspension against Winston in this case.

The NFL is still investigating the allegations against Winston, which you can read more about here.

Winston, for what it’s worth, has staunchly denied he did anything improper.
