Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston expected to be suspended by NFL

Terrible news for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their fans.

Franchise quarterback Jameis Winston is expected to be suspended several games after violating the league’s personal conduct policy.

NFL media insider Ian Rapoport reported the unfortunate news on Thursday evening.

According to Rapoport’s report, neither Winston or the Buccaneers organization have been notified of the suspension.

Winston’s pending suspension stems from an alleged groping incident with a female Uber driver in Scottsdale, Arizona in March of 2016.

Jameis released the following statement denying the incident this past November.

“A news organization has published a story about me regarding an alleged incident involving a female Uber driver from approximately two years ago. The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her. The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately. At the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, yet they still decided to suspend my account.”

“I am supportive of the national movement to raise awareness and develop better responses to the concerns of parties who find themselves in these types of situations, but this accusation is false. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver, and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way.”

If the pending suspension of Jameis Winston does come to fruition, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be forced to turn to backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Los Angeles Rams have signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal worth $14 million dollars according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

The 31-year-old was released by his former team the Miami Dolphins at the start of free agency.

Suh had visited the Titans, Saints and Raiders prior to eventually signing with the Rams.

In LA, Suh will play alongside reigning defensive player of the year Aaron Donald.

Los Angeles made the playoffs last season under the leadership of star quarterback Jared Goff.

With the signing of Suh, it is clear that the Rams have Super Bowl aspirations for the 2018-2019 season.

The Minnesota Vikings made Kirk Cousins the highest paid player in the NFL on Thursday, signing the quarterback to a monstrous 3-year deal worth $84 million in guaranteed cash.

Cousins joins a Vikings team that went deep into the playoffs last season, which culminated in a disappointing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship.

“I look forward to playing here,” Cousins said during his introductory news conference Thursday. “As [general manager Rick [Spielman] said yesterday, this is a lifetime deal. That’s the goal. Yes, it’s a three-year deal but the expectation is from both sides that we’d raise our kids here and if everything goes as planned that I’d be here a long, long time.”

Cousins will have plenty of weapons to choose from in Minnesota including receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. In addition, Kirk will be able to handoff the ball to dynamic running back Dalvin Cook in the 2018-2019 season.
