Jameis Winston’s Contract with Buccaneers Will Not Allow QB to Play Baseball

Jameis Winston may love playing both football and baseball, but his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will force the 21-year-old to focus solely on football.

That makes sense, considering the Buccaneers just used the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft on the quarterback.

Back in February, Winston—who was a closer on the Florida State baseball team—told Peter King of The Monday Morning Quarterback that he hadn’t ruled out trying to play both football and baseball professionally. That’s something Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson also admitted to wanting to do.

Well, Winston’s dream of being a multisport athlete concerned the Buccaneers, according to King:

That section of the column alarmed [Tampa Bay general manager Jason] Licht, and that Monday he texted Winston and then spoke with him about it. He told Winston that wasn’t something the Bucs would be likely to accept if he was their pick. Winston said he understood, but loved baseball so much that he was being honest about it with me.

As a result, the Buccaneers were able to work a clause into Winston’s rookie deal that prohibits the quarterback from playing professional baseball for the length of his contract, per KingAnd with that, Winston’s dream of being the next Bo Jackson has been put on hold, if not shattered.

Prince William, Kate Middleton Announce Name Of Royal Princess

LONDON (CBSNewYork/AP) — Britain’s newborn princess has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, according to the palace.

The princess is the second child of Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. The baby will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

Charlotte, the feminine form of Charles, is a nod to the newborn’s grandfather, Prince Charles. The middle names honor Queen Elizabeth II, the infant’s great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, William’s mother.

The princess is fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William and her older brother Prince George.

William and Kate introduced the baby princess to the world Saturday evening, just 12 hours after Kate checked into a London hospital to give birth. The baby weighed in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces (3.7 kilograms).

Bookmakers had taken huge amounts of bets on the name, with Alice, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Victoria, Olivia and Diana among the most popular guesses.

Earlier Monday, bells at Westminster Abbey pealed and gun salutes were fired across London in honor of the newborn princess. Dozens of deafening volleys were fired from Hyde Park and the Tower of London.

We can’t wait for Bruce Jenner to tell his story in his upcoming docuseries that will chronicle his transition from a man to a woman.

Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Scott Disick will each talk about their struggle to process their feelings after Bruce tells them about living life as the person he’s always known himself to be.

The special will also show family home video footage to remind the viewers of the special times the Kardashian-Jenner family spent with Bruce. According to Kim, while the family is still adjusting to Bruce’s transition, they “all really support him.”

Get ready to see all of the feelings during part one on Sunday, May 17, at 9:00 p.m. and part two on Monday, May 18, at 9:00 p.m.

We think it’s great that the Kardashian family will be sharing their thoughts and struggles with Bruce’s transition in this special!

In addition to the two-part special, Bruce’s 8-episode documentary series will debut July 26 at 9 p.m.! Check out a clip of the KUWTK special (below) to watch Kim try to explain some of Bruce’s struggles to Kris, who is having trouble letting go to the past.

( From Perez: Bruce stated in the interview to use “he” and “him” so we will do so in our coverage until that changes. )
