Bucs QB Winston says he hasn't been interviewed by NFL in Uber case
Five months after the NFL began an investigation into an alleged incident between Jameis Winston and an Uber driver, the NFL still hasn't interviewed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, Winston claimed Monday.
That tidbit emerged when the Buccaneers began their offseason workout program
A female Uber driver in Arizona accused Winston of groping her in March 2016
and the league began its probe last November. Winston, who maintains his
innocence, said nobody from the NFL has contacted him to discuss the incident.
Winston could possibly be suspended under the league's player conduct policy.
"Well, I know the NFL has a process they have to go through and I respect that
process," Winston told reporters. "That's not my job to speculate on that
process. My focus has been with this organization, getting the guys back in
here and focusing on what we can do to be a better team this offseason."
The lack of a resolution has irked coach Dirk Koetter and general manager
Jason Licht, who are bothered by the slow pace of the investigation.
As for the incident, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby said he was
in the backseat of the car with Winston and has stated that nothing occurred.
Meanwhile, Winston is focusing on getting back to playing all 16 games in an
NFL season. He missed three games last season due to a shoulder injury as he
passed for 3,504 yards, 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
He played all 16 games in each of his first two seasons, topping 4,000 yards
in each and throwing a combined 50 touchdown passes.
