Kenny Bell Raves about Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston continues to get rave reviews from the Buccaneers.

After the first rookie minicamp, Bucs G.M. Jason Licht and coach Lovie Smith both said Winston had exceeded expectations. Now Bucs rookie receiver Kenny Bell, who has been paired up with Winston as his minicamp roommate, is raving about Winstons work ethic.

“He’s the best roommate I’ve ever had, one of the best teammates I’ve ever had,” Bell said on WDAE. “It’s been phenomenal. We’ve been going from about 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and then we get back to the hotel and he wants to study more. . . . He’s dedicated to his job, that’s for sure.”

That’s what the Bucs want to hear. There have been plenty of questions raised about Winston’s off-field issues, but there is little doubt that Winston is committed to being a good quarterback. The work he’s putting in now will pay off for the Bucs in four months.
