Bucs GM: Jameis Winston will have 'every opportunity' to be starter
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With the Buccaneers taking quarterback Jameis Winston with the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, general manager Jason Licht said Winston will be given a chance to win the starting role in Week 1, reports NBCSports.com.

"It's pretty difficult to say with a straight face that we're not going to give Jameis that opportunity to win it right away," Licht said. "He's the first overall pick. We think he's very advanced in terms of his ability to play and pick up schemes and concepts and learn the playbook relative to most rookies, or any rookie we've scouted in recent history. So he's gonna have every opportunity."

Winston will be competing with quarterback Mike Glennon for the starting role.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Buccaneers will not pick up the fifth-year option on running back Doug Martin, meaning he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016, per the Tampa Tribune. 

Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012, but since then has battled injury and ineffectiveness, falling short of 500 yards in each of the last two seasons. 

Martin remains in line to be Tampa Bay's No. 1 rusher at the start of 2015, but he will have to prove himself in order to be rewarded with a new contract.
