Nov. 25, 2012: A woman calls 911 to report that there are two men on a bike path on the Florida State University campus with what appears to be a black, long-barreled pistol. Police respond and draw their guns as they approach Jameis Winston and his roommate and teammate, Chris Casher, and ultimately handcuff them. The two tell the officer they were shooting at squirrels with a pellet gun, and they are released without charges being filed.
Nov. 25, 2012: A few hours after the incident on the bike path, Winston, Casher and two other Florida State players, Mario Edwards and Kenneth “P.J.” Williams, allegedly engage in a BB- and pellet-gun battle at their apartment house, inflicting an estimated $4,000 in damage. Management at the apartment house declines to press criminal charges after an FSU athletic official vows that the players will pay for the damage.
Nice to see he'll have friends in the locker room already!
I will say my general take on JW has been "good lord, what were the Bucs even thinking drafting him #1 overall." A bunch of this stuff is pretty minor but the rape allegation should still give us all pause when we talk about JW as the Saints QB of the future. I don't care how talented an arm he has -- the guy has super suspect decision making skills both on and off the football field.
I like the signing as a 1 year backup plan and at 1.1 mil it's a no brainer!
As a fan, do I want the franchise to give this guy the keys after Brees? Not really.
All that said, I will defer to CSP and support his decision when the time comes.
