Jameis Winston provokes a fight while not playing

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is out of the game, and he nearly got one of his teammates ejected.

With the Bucs trailing the Saints 30-3, Winston triggered a small rumble on the sidelines.

He came off the sidelines and poked Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in the back of the head, leading Lattimore to retaliate with a one-handed shove.

But then Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans came from behind Lattimore and knocked him down, leading to a brief scrum in which punches were thrown.

Winston had no business involving himself since he’s not playing (they took him out to protect his injured shoulder), and deserved a penalty of his own for leaving the bench.
