Jameis Winston Picked Off In NFL Debut

Jameis Winston is being trusted to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back to a respectable level in the NFL. The task isn’t as daunting as you might think it is. The Bucs are in the NFC South, a division riddled with mediocrity during the past few seasons, and Winston has some pretty decent weapons around him. Vincent Jackson is no slouch.

Trent Richardson Still Can’t Find Open Running Lanes

Trent Richardson was straight up dominant while with the Alabama Crimson Tide. It was funny because Mark Ingram had done extremely well before him, but the consensus was that Richardson was far better when given a full workload.

WATCH: Altuve, Cabrera mess around at first base

By Robert Judin It is completely normal for MLB players to be friends with guys on other teams. You don’t need to be exclusive to just your teammates. A lot of these players came up through the minor leagues together and remained close or at least friendly.
