Report: Jameis Winston fined $12,154 for poking Marshon Lattimore in head

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans will not be in the lineup against the Jets this weekend because he’s serving a one-game suspension for blindsiding Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in last Sunday’s game.

Evans went after Lattimore because Lattimore pushed Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston in the chest after Winston, who was not in the game at the time, poked him in the back of the head. That got Lattimore’s attention, obviously, and it also caught the attention of the league.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Winston has been fined $12,154 for the poke. Winston apologized for doing it this week and there’s no word if he plans to appeal the fine.

Winston will join Evans on the bench this week, although it’s his right shoulder and not a suspension that will keep him out of the lineup.

  1. How does that saying go? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice. This guy is always going to be immature and a distraction. He won’t be as big of a cancer as Cam Newton as that is hard to do, but he will never bring his team to the big dance or be as good as the greats.

  2. Winston used the excuse of “immaturity” when he did stupid things at FSU. Now that he is several years into the NFL, is Winston still claiming “immaturity”? Maybe it’s that Winston is just an entitled, spoiled jerk no matter how old he is.

  3. A spoiled jerk all the time, we just see it some of the time. No doubt Winston has talent but character wise he is really lacking.

    Several years, as in he’s now in his 3rd season at 23 years old? I wouldn’t call him a wiley old vet just yet.

    The jury is still out on him here, however, as someone that lives in the Tampa Bay area I will say that this is the first incident he’s had as a pro, and it happened on the field not off.

    This team has plenty of problems, however, Winston is not one of them right now. If he can learn to calm his emotions, stop trying to do it all himself, he might turn out alright.

  5. meanwhile kiko alonso got fined $9k for that hit on flacco. and the dolphins player who poked Howard in the eye on purpose didn’t get fined at all.

    But Jameis gets fined $12k for literally tapping a guy on the back???

  6. Good. He should have been. Evans should have controlled himself, but it’s admirable that he defended his QB. ALL of this falls on Jameis, who should never have stepped foot on the field.
