Despite what some have interpreted Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston’s statement from earlier on Thursday to say, admitting guilt isn’t the case, at least according to one national reporter.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero on the NFL Network talked about Winston’s statement and what he has learned according to his sources.
#Bucs QB Jameis Winston's apology was part of the negotiated settlement on his 3-game suspension, sources say. He does not admit guilt to the conduct the NFL says violated the policy. But he acknowledges he was drinking that night and doesn't remember everything. @TomPelissero pic.twitter.com/Z7lRtZgmtC

Pelissero also said Winston’s alcohol use the night in question could have clouded his memory. Later Pelissero said the Buccaneers have no plans to release their quarterback at this time.
