Jameis Winston has been criticized in the past for his off the field issues as well as his weight. The Buccaneers quarterback is trying to lose weight though and focus on winning football games.  The former FSU standout says he is focused on turning the corner. 

“Trying to lose some weight, try to get back skinny,” he said of his plans. “Right now I’m 238 (pounds), I’m trying to be my redshirt freshman year (weight), about 230. I mean, learn that playbook too, man, you can never go wrong with that.”

“I have nothing to prove,” Winston said. “I believe that people make mistakes, but I also believe that you bounce back from those and I’m just moving forward.”

“You never focus on the negative. You put a big smile on your face and work hard and work to improve every single day,” he said.

It sounds like Winston is truly going to be a game changer. I love his attitude so far.
