CHICAGO (AP) — Jameis Winston often smiled amid off-the-field problems at Florida State. Now that he's in the NFL, he's clearly still smiling and willing to make fun of himself.
The Heisman Trophy winner and new No. 1 overall NFL pick joked about one of his problems just after he was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night.
Winston, who was cited for stealing crab legs from a grocery store in April 2014, posted an Instagram photo of him celebrating on draft night with a tray of crab legs.
Winston was suspended from the Florida State baseball team for five days after the incident, which included a civil citation for shoplifting but no arrest.
Before the draft, Winston explained that an employee had agreed to give him the crab legs for free, but the store said they found no evidence that employees gave him the food.
