Jameis Winston sends message to people affected by hurricanes

As Hurricane Irma has forced thousands of evacuations from Florida, more than 100 Tampa Bay Buccaneers players, staff members, employees and their immediate family members have been relocated to the Charlotte area as the storm passes through.

Thousands more Floridians are not so fortunate and will have to wait out the storm and hope for the best. To that, Jameis Winston offered up his thoughts and prayers to all affected by Irma, as well as those still suffering from the aftereffects of Harvey in Houston, in a post on his Instagram account:

Thinking about everyone suffering now. #hurricaneirma #hurricaneharvey Please be safe Florida

The Bucs' contest with the Miami Dolphins, originally scheduled for Sunday to kick off both teams' regular seasons, has been moved to Week 11 as Irma makes its way through the Sunshine State.
