Jameis Winston reportedly moves on from agents following three-game NFL suspension
One report says the move was in the works long before the NFL handed down Winston's ban
Jameis Winston reportedly moved on from his agents on Friday, the Buccaneers QB for three games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Greg Genske and Kenny Felder, who generally represent baseball players, had previously been Winston's representatives throughout his NFL career.
According to Pro Football Talk, Winston is the one that initiated the move. However, reports also suggest that the change has been in the works long before the suspension was handed down.
Winston now has to wait at least five days before hiring a new agent, but whether or not he has someone else in mind is unclear. Genske and Felder, of course, "negotiated" the former No. 1 overall pick's rookie contract,on back in April. The final year of that deal will be in 2019, when the Buccaneers will be on the hook for $20.9 million. After that season, Winston will enter free agency if he doesn't sign an extension with Tampa Bay.
It's entirely possible that this drama will cause the Buccaneers to take their time before opening negotiations with Winston on another extension -- if they choose to do so at all.
