That loud yawping sound...

...heard 'round the National Football League last evening came from Northern Florida where the Tampa Bay Bucca­neers had just seen the Instagram image posted by their No. 1 (overall) draft pick Jameis Winston:

Accompanying the photograph was the mesage:

"Thanks Capt for the crab legs"

(The image has since been deleted from his Insta­gram account about nine hours after it was posted around 11:00 pm last night.)

For those unfamiliar with such minutiae, Winston was ar­rested a year ago for shop-lifting $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish from a Publix supermarket in Tallahassee, Florida.

That1 legal problem was ultimately disposed of when Winston was ordered to undergo 20 hours of community service. He was also suspended from any college baseball activity until he completed his community service.

Now Tampa Bay management has got to be wondering if they wasted that precious No 1 pick, and Winston is going to be this year's Johnny Manziel.

And all around the NFL defensive linemen and linebackers are licking their chops and checking the 2015 schedule to see when they might play the Buccaneers.

  1. There have been numerous others, including an allegation of an on-campus rape.

What an idiot! And yes, Manziel is a jerk as well, an obnoxiously cocky one! But Winston comes across as less cocky than stupid!

And whoever that stunning young woman is behind him, Winston's girlfriend or sister or a neighbor, the look she is giving him seems to be saying, "Jameis, are you sure you want to do this?"

Well observed!

Heisman Trophy winners haven't exactly been the idea role models of late.
