Criticized as he entered the NFL for being out of shape, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is shaping up.
Winston’s father told ESPN that Jameis has lost 20 pounds, and his trainer, Tim Grover, posted the evidence on Instagram.
The picture on the left famously made the rounds before the Buccaneers took Winston with the first overall pick in last year’s NFL draft. The noticeable gut raised questions about whether Winston takes his conditioning seriously enough. But the picture of the right, taken this week, shows that if Winston didn’t take his conditioning seriously before, he does now.
Winston stopped eating potato chips and other unhealthy snacks, and he stopped eating anything at all after 7 p.m. The results are obvious in the photos. We’ll see soon if that translates to results on the field.
