  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston wearing cast on thumb    Sat Jan 4, 07:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) is wearing a cast on the right thumb he injured during the regular season.

Footballguys view: The full cast on his thumb shows how serious the injury was for Winston. He played through the injury and it caused him great pain. Winston showed toughness and finished the year as the NFL's passing leader with 5,109 passing yards. We shall now see if Bucs head coach Bruce Arians wants to keep Winston around with a new contract or if the team heads in a different direction at the position for 2020 and beyond.

  Buccaneers | Week 17 final stats for Buccaneers    Sun Dec 29, 04:58 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston completed 13-of-24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 17 against the Atlanta Falcons. RB Ronald Jones ran 11 times for 106 yards with two grabs for 10 yards, while WR Breshad Perriman led the way with five catches for 134 yards and a touchdown on eight targets. TE Cameron Brate had just one grab for two yards and a score on three targets. RB Peyton Barber ended up with six runs for 10 yards with two receptions for 25 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Winston threw a pick six in overtime on his last pass of the season. If it's his last pass as a Buc, then his career there will begin and end with pick sixes. The Bucs have a tough offseason decision on Winston, who will be a free agent. Ronald Jones had some promising moments this year and Perriman is about get paid in free agency.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (knee, thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 25.

  Buccaneers | Bruce Arians non-committal on Jameis Winston    Sat Dec 21, 05:38 PM

Winston now has 28 interceptions in 2019 and the team has to decide whether or not they'll keep him around on a new contract. He played on his fifth-year option in 2019 and is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020. 'There's been no decision on any player. We don't make those decisions until the end of the season,' Arians said.

Footballguys view: The Bucs WR position is incredibly thin right now with both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin likely out for Week 16. That makes Breshad Perriman a must-add on waiver wires, especially after his three-touchdown performance in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Winston is expected to start and while he comes with risk, he also has a lot of upside against a Lions defense that is looking forward to 2020. This is good news for Chris Godwin and makes Breshad Perriman and OJ Howard more viable plays.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston sort of throwing    Thu Dec 12, 03:03 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (thumb) was throwing a tennis ball during the portion of practice open to the media Thursday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Well, that's something anyway. Winston is having trouble gripping a football but he insists that he will play. Backup Ryan Griffin would get the start if Winston can't play. Obviously, this is a shaky situation and one Fantasy GMs need to watch -- especially if you're counting on someone like WR Chris Godwin this week.

  Buccaneers | Jameis Winston's future still murky    Thu Dec 5, 01:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is currently playing out his fifth-year option on his rookie contract, and head coach Bruce Arians says it's still to be determined if Winston will be offered a new contract to return to the team in 2020. 'I'm gonna pass on that one. I'm gonna wait until the end of December,' Arians said at a news conference Wednesday, Dec. 4. 'There's been really, really good. And there's been some really, really bad.... I'm just going to pass until it's over. And then, we'll make a decision.'

Footballguys view: Who in the world knows what the future holds for Winston. He should have been better under Bruce Arians this year, but Winston is still a turnover machine most weeks. The Bucs could easily go in a different direction, be that a free agent or rookie quarterback in 2020.
