I can confirm that the Bucs have picked up the fifth-year option on quarterback Jameis Winston's contract, as first reported by the Tampa Bay Times.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

I asked Jameis Winston if he agreed with Lamar Jackson's decision not to run the 40 and him being adamant about not moving to receiver, and he said, "I can't really talk about that. He is who he is. I'm just excited for him as a player and as a quarterback. ... I love my position and I love playing quarterback and he's been playing quarterback too so I know he loves his position too."

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston on Lamar Jackson: "I hope he gets a shot. I believe he's an outstanding player. Any guy that puts up numbers like that in any conference should get some looks. I know he's a baller and he wants to be a quarterback. From what I've seen, he's a great quarterback."

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Jameis Winston when asked about the NFL's investigation of his alleged Uber incident: "It's not my job to speculate on the process. My focus has been with this organization, getting the guys back in here and focusing on what we can do to become a better team this offseason."

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston said he still has not been interviewed by the NFL about the alleged Uber groping incident. General manager Jason Licht and head coach Dirk Koetter both said that the league's pace has been frustrating.

Bucs wide receiver DeSean Jackson said it was really important to him to be here for the start of the offseason program. He still plans to do his speed training in California in the offseason like he always has.
