Jameis Winston — “Famous Jameis”™ pending — will likely be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ top pick in this year’s NFL draft. That is, if they keep the pick. Rumors were swirling last week that the Eagles were about to move up into that number one spot, and then they swirled faster and harder, and then they died. Reportedly, the Eagles have made their offer, but the Bucs don’t know what they want to do about it yet. And today, Winston is stopping by for a visit. Still, Winston visiting the team that would likely pick him at number one is regular, normal activity, right?
The logical thought track this painfully slow March morning puts us on is that the Bucs want to see more of (and hear more from) Jameis to see how much they really want him at number one, of if they’d be willing to move out of that spot. Or, maybe some of the Bucs higher-ups just have vacation plans coming up.[Editor’s note: The rumors are true – that some in the Philly media believed a trade was imminent late last week – and supposedly several name reporters did look into them. Obviously, there wasn’t much there… well, it depends how you define imminent. ]
