Shouldn’t Jameis Winston Stop Making Jokes About Crab Legs?

Submitted by on May 1, 2015 – 10:31 amNo Comment

As expected, Jameis Winston went No. 1 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft last night. Despite all of the off-the-field issues surrounding him, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers apparently felt comfortable enough to make Winston their man moving forward. And Winston repaid them by…bringing up one of the off-the-field issues that made so many people question whether or not he’s ready to be a franchise quarterback in the NFL.

A short time after being drafted, Winston posted a photo of him sitting in front of a plate of crab legs on Instagram. He did it because he got into a lot of trouble last year during his time with the Florida State Seminoles after he “stole” a bunch of crab legs from a Publix supermarket. He later said that a guy who worked at the Publix hooked him up with the crab legs and that he didn’t steal them. But regardless of what happened, you wouldn’t think that Winston would want to bring that incident up on the most important night of his life.

He did, though, and now, people are ripping him for doing it. And you know what? We don’t really blame them for it. At this moment, people are counting on Winston to be the future of the Tampa Bay franchise. So it’s time for him to stop doing all of the immature kinds of things that he did while he was playing at FSU. That doesn’t mean that he has to be Mr. Serious all the time. But it does mean that he has to do everything in his power to keep negativity away from him. That starts with him staying out of trouble, but it also includes him not referencing things that have happened in the past. Otherwise, people are going to continue to talk about Winston’s shortcomings instead of talking about his potential as an NFL quarterback.

What do you think about the photo that Winston posted on Instagram during the NFL Draft? Was it a dumb thing for him to post—or did it simply show that he’s able to poke fun at himself?
