Jameis Winston working to get in shape

Jameis Winston's offseason training seems to be paying off.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has lost about 20 pounds this offseason, his father told ESPN.

As a rookie, Winston received criticism for his weight. Winston weighed in at 231 pounds at the NFL Combine, and shirtless images of him that circulated around the internet only brought more attention to the issue.

But now, he’s working to change that, and this Instagram picture that his trainer posted shows that he has definitely made some progress.


The preseason starts in a few weeks, so it'll be interesting to see if Winston's training efforts translate into on-field improvements when the time comes.
