Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston joined PFT Live on Tuesday morning and went in depth on a number of issues. Our friend at the Tampa Bay Times, Greg Auman, beat writer and noted fan of comedian Louis CK, transcribed the interview that ranged from Winston’s recent letter to his teammates, to his thoughts on fellow 2015 first round quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Winston had this to say about the former Oregon standout.
“I watch every quarterback in this league compete, and I always try to see how their days were compared to my days. I’m just in a universal competition, not just with NFL quarterbacks, but with college quarterbacks as well. I believe as long as I’m competing against everybody, I can only hope for the best for me. Marcus is a tremendous player. It’s tough to battle with him on a week-to-week basis, but that’s what it’s all about. God put me here for football, and I’m going to try to play my best, week in and week out.”
