TAMPA – The hosts of the NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” show just can’t seem to get enough of Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston. Which is of course great for Winston, the Bucs and their fans.

Winston is a regular topic of discussion on the show, which a week ago compared him to Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen, and had him on again this morning, live from Bucs training camp.

We can say that now because the Bucs are officially in camp. The players reported this morning and from the looks of the clip below, Winston was among the first to arrive.

Nothing new there. Winston regularly beats most of his teammates to the facility and it looks like he’s ready to get going on what everyone hopes will be a big season.

There was plenty more than that, of course. Here’s a look at a few more clips, courtesy of the Good Morning Football twitter feed.


The Bucs are indeed hoping to rain on a few parades this year, and there are many who believe they will. They’re one of the chic picks to make a jump into the playoff pack and Winston was asked about that as well.

Now entering only his third year in the league, Winston was asked about the pressure he’s under to get the Bucs back to the playoffs, and s you may have come to expect, Winston says he doesn’t really feel the pressure.

“I’m confident in the guys we have here,’’ Winston said when asked about the pressure he and the Bucs are facing this season. “We’re ready to get things going.’’

Well, they will get going for real on Friday when the first of the team’s true training camp workouts begins at 8:45 a.m. at One Buc Place. Florida Football Insiders will be there live providing up to the minute news and updates.
