Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston and the woman that accused him of rape in 2012 have settled their civil suit, TMZ reported Wednesday.

According to the report, the details of the settlement have not been released, but the two will file a joint dismissal of the lawsuit against Winston.

Winston was never criminally charged in the case, but accuser Erica Kinsman filed a civil suit against Winston in April 2015, shortly before he was selected No. 1 overall by Tampa Bay.

Kinsman was awarded $950,000 from a settlement earlier this year after she sued Florida State University, claiming the university had mishandled the investigation of Winston.

The Bucs will have no statement on the matter tonight.

I will not speculate on the validity of the woman’s claims. I wasn’t there and I haven’t read any of the investigation documents that have been made public. Like Denzel Washington once said, “If you don’t read the newspaper you’re uninformed. If you do read the newspaper you’re misinformed.” So I decided a while back to just let other people argue over this issue and I’d make up my mind what I was going to think about it after watching Jameis’ actions for a while. Because I believe that people are who they are. As much as we’d all like… Read more »

He has been a model citizen since arriving at Tampa. And no one dedicates himself more to the game.

Well said. Funny, I was just thinking of the this the other day, that cloud that hangs over the kid. Glad it’s behind him, now on to being one of the best on and off the field.

Ok, so, more than half way through the season, we are a very hot team and riding a five game win streak. Why are we even posting articles like right now? This is beating a dead horse already…..Let’s talk Sunday Night football and the Cowboys. FYI, there are groups of girls who “purposely” chase “money men”, meaning they chase players who are potentially going to be drafted at the next level, this is not BS. Please leave articles like this out, I would much rather read more stories about Jameis being the true leader he is for this team and… Read more »

You can’t ignore facts, the news, and history, Michael, as painful as they may be. Jameis has a history, one that fed gazillions of articles, posts, comments, etc. for years. You can’t wish it away. The good news is that the settlement now makes the issue go away. If the litigation had not been settled, and allowed to go to full discovery and trial, it would have reopened all the debate, the wounds, the hatred formerly directed towards both the accused and the accuser, and it would have dominated discussion of both the player and the team. This is good… Read more »

None of us or anyone else was there, guilt or innocence is indeterminate. Most rapes are never reported or have charges filed. Most charges of rape end up in dismissal or acquittal. It just is, and there’s no point in arguing it. As others here have noted, Jameis Winston, regardless of what he did or didn’t do four years ago, has been a model citizen and a model NFL player and a valuable member of this team. If he were ever to be accused of similar actions in the future, he will likely not be the beneficiary of the doubt… Read more »

I have two daughters and told them both if you go back to some guys place after midnight don’t think for a minute he wants to show u his original collection of Harry Potter books. He is asking you to come up to his place for one thing. Sorry, but that’s just the way it is.
This case was always about someone getting their feelings hurt and then money. Especially money.

I won’t speculate on what happened because I don’t know. As Naples said most Rapes are never even reported. I am a believer of where there is smoke there is fire. Was she pissed because he ignored her after? Maybe. Did he do something inappropriate? Maybe.

Just glad it’s settled. He has been a model citizen since drafted so will just have to see.

Go Bucs! Beat Dallas!!!!!!

IF you heard Mr. Winston recording of the MOST NASTY VULGAR remarks being said to someone at school you would be concerned about how he views ladies but… I agree since becoming a buc it appears their has been no issues

I read everything the Sates Attorney Office provided to the public and I long ago came to the conclussion nothing warranted this law suit and my guess is it was settled for attorney fees so more attorney fees wouldn’t accumulate. Was the investigation misshandled; yes because part of it was the accuser wasn’t forth coming and rather we like it or not, sports figures do get breaks. I still saw nothing in the suit, but two 18 year old kids acting inappropriately. This is the part that disgust me when us tax payers have to pay for the attorney fees… Read more »

Horse I’m glad someone else decided to actually look at the facts presented. I personally wish he would’ve taken her to the cleaners but, A. it would’ve cost a lot more in fees, B. why drag all that shit up again? , C. get it out of the way and never have to worry about it again. The more I think about it, I’m kind of glad he just settled and he can focus on football now. Who knows how long a trial like that would last. On to the game.

I am an avid FSU fan and this issue ticks me off so much. I read All of the documents, including the initial exam at the hospital and the code of conduct hearing. The young woman’s story changed at least five times!!! His legal team even had the Assistant DA testify at the school’s COC hearung. Was I there, no, but the media DID NOT, or WOULD NOT report outright fabrications in her story, most evident with a CLEAN TOXICOLOGY REPORT, while she constantly intimated that she was drugged in interviews and THG documentary. Her legal team even said that… Read more »

Are you seriously not going to mention that his countersuit for defamation is also being settled? Not even mention the countersuit at all? But throw in the FSU settlement
