Local media members have been waiting nearly a month to see new Bucs QB Jameis Winston under center working with the full offensive roster. But the media – and fans – will have to wait another week, as it was announced on Tuesday that Winston will be flying to California on Wednesday evening to attend the NFLPA’s Rookie Premiere event. The overall No. 1 pick in last April’s NFL Draft won’t be alone though, as 39 other high drafted rookies will also join the former FSU star.
OTAs will continue over the next two weeks, where Winston will be in attendance and the media will be able to view the entire practice. Following the OTAs the Bucs have a mandatory mini-camp that will take place in June (16th-18th) then will be given a long break until the start of training camp which is expected to begin on or around July 31. No official dates and times have been announced, but camp will be held at One Buc Place like it has been the last several years since returning back to Tampa from Orlando where the team trained for a few years under former head coach Jon Gruden.
Despite Winston not attending on Thursday, PewterReport.com will of course still be attending, and have full detailed practice reports later in the afternoon.

I think we can all wait to see “America’s Next Top QB” for one more week. There are plenty of storylines that we are all interested to see – along the O-line and the fierce competition for the 3rd wide receiver. This should give Mike Glennon a chance to show why he was not traded. Go Bucs!
Seems dumb to schedule an OTA at the same time as a mandatory NFL event that keeps your rookie QB from participating.
Thank you, I agree.
How many more won’t be here?
