“It’s official! Jameis Winston is headed to the Pro Bowl. He’s joining Doug Martin and Logan Mankins on the offensive side of the Bucs. On the defense, he’ll be joined by Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David. 5 Bucs headed to the Pro Bowl! This is a great sign of a young team on the rise with a core of high-caliber players. Spread the word… the Bucs are coming up!” – Mike Giannulis
“He’ll be replacing Tom Brady, who decided against the trip to Hawaii. Winston finished up the year with 4,042 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and six rushing scores as well. The top pick from the 2015 NFL draft proved to be the complete package and a leader for Tampa Bay this season.” – Reported by Jeff Smith
