Florida State legend calls QB Jameis Winston an embarrassment
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston countersues his rape accuser
Winston is looking to give the Buccaneers a force at quarterback that they have been lacking since Josh Freeman showed promise in 2010 before flopping and becoming a journeyman backup.
Winston rose to prominence by winning the Heisman Trophy for Florida State while leading them to the national championship in the 2013 college football season.
The Buccaneers quarterback has often been criticized for being dumb, and his latest comments are sure to give his critics fuel.
Winston revealed that he looks most forward to playing against Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
Although this may simply be a statement of confidence and wanting to beat the best, Winston is poking a giant bear with a stick.
Watt won his second Defensive Player of the Year award while finishing second in the MVP voting, and he may have been able to win it if not for an incredible season with a heroic finish by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Texans defensive end came up with 20.5 sacks in the 2014 season as they went 9-7 despite not having a reliable quarterback.
Due to his reputation and on-field play, Watt is easily the most feared defensive player in the NFL, so Winston may need to be careful what he wishes for.
Winston will find out whether he stands by his comments in Week 3 of the upcoming season, as the Texans will host the Buccaneers.
