The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held their first practice of training camp on Thursday. The Bucs' marketing department is preparing for the 2018 NFL season, too, but it's doing so without one of its most important players -- Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston. At Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs' home field, the giant player banners on display for the new season feature defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, linebacker Lavonte David and wide receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, and not the Tampa Bay quarterback. The team has decided not to include Winston in their marketing promotions. Why would an NFL team try to sell tickets to its fans and build enthusiasm for the coming season without using arguably the most visible and important player on its roster? Because Winston's three-game suspension has forced the Bucs' hand. On June 28, the NFL suspended Winston for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy. After a seven-month investigation, the NFL said it found a female … [Read more...] about Is Jameis Winston still the face of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
Here’s a look at what each player on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is set to earn this season. Note that the amounts listed are “cash” figures, or the actual dollars a player will receive. In some cases, the cash a player earns will differ from his salary cap charge. Why is that? When a player and his team agree to terms, he may receive a signing bonus, which is paid up front but for salary cap purposes is prorated over the life of the contract. Take, for example, the four-year, $14.8 million contract first-round pick Vita Vea signed in May. About $9 million of that is his signing bonus, and the rest will be base salaries. Only a quarter of that bonus, however, will count against the Bucs’ salary cap this season. So while Vea will earn $9.3 million in actual dollars, his cap hit will be only $2.7 million. Not all contracts are fully guaranteed. The Bucs could cut some of the players below at any time and have no further financial obligation. Mike Evans Age (as of … [Read more...] about NFL player salaries: How much will the 2018 Tampa Bay Buccaneers make?
Jameis Winston will be entering his fourth NFL season in 2018 (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri, File) Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston confirmed Thursday that he has been suspended for the first three games of the 2018 NFL season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The league had been investigating Winston since November, when a female Uber driver publicly accused him of groping her while she gave him a ride in Scottsdale, Ariz. The woman, known only as "Kate," told BuzzFeed News that Winston grabbed her crotch while they waited in a drive-thru line at a Mexican restaurant in March 2016. Winston initially issued a statement denying the driver's claims, claiming that she was confused about the identity of who was in the car with her. However, the NFL concluded that her story was "consistent and credible." In his statement Thursday, Winston apologized to the Uber driver "for the position I put you in. It is uncharacteristic of me and I genuinely … [Read more...] about Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston suspended for three games
