As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers players return for the start of training camp, they face many questions about the coming season. Among them, how the team will handle the three-game suspension of Jameis Winston.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, star linebacker Davonte David said the team is standing behind their quarterback after the “unfortunate situation” and will have his back no matter what.

While some have called for Tampa Bay to cut Winston, the organization and Winston’s teammates are ready to support him through the entire process.
When he is allowed to return to the field, the 24-year-old quarterback should have no problem gaining back the support in the locker room and being one of the leaders on the team.
