Report: Buccaneers’ Jameis Winston’s Nike Contract Won’t Be Renewed

    Jameis Winston, just like his Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2017 season, is catching Ls at the highest of rates in his personal life. 

    Winston will miss the first 3 games of the 2018 season as punishment for violating the league’s personal conduct policy with his groping of an Uber driver in 2016. 

    And now the former first-round pick apparently will be reportedly losing some sponsorship money as Nike has decided to not renew the former Florida State Seminoles contract. 

    Even though he apologized, Jameis has been a habitual line stepper in the past. And Nike is a business, who wants to protect their image, so seeing Jameis lose his deal isnt the most surprising story. 

    But hey, the NFL loves a good redemption story. This will be fuel for James to prove himself once again as a leader both on and off the field. 

    Just keep your hands to yourself and everything else should fall into place.
