Winston Among Bucs Working During Break

Jameis Winston, Gerald McCoy and Mike Evans, among others, can't wait to get back on the field.


Following the Bucs' final mini-camp practice, head coach Lovie Smith said he'd like to see his players take some time away from football and relax before the start of training camp. For a few weeks, posts on social media would come across of players on vacation and spending time with their families. But this week, it appears many of the Bucs are getting back to work.

On Instagram, defensive captain Gerald McCoy posted a video of him working on pass-rush drills with a weighted vest in a sand pit. "Live and love what you do!!," McCoy posted, along with the video. "D-lineman have to live pass rush. Especially in today's league (because) it is a passing league. Find a way to gain an advantage. Don't just do the bags. In the Tampa heat, put 'em in the sand, put on a helmet, put on a weight vest, get barefoot and go to work!! Preparing for hunting season!!"

McCoy isn't the only one getting back to work. Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston has been working with two of his wide receivers, Mike Evans and Louis Murphy, to prepare for the upcoming season. Murphy posted a photo of the three earlier in the week.

Winston followed on Thursday.

"Proud of these guys coming out to (Tallahassee) to work hard @mikeevans (Evans) & @one8bucc (Murphy) it's only the beginning," Winston wrote.

Evans reposted Winston's photo, adding, "Got some work in at @jaboowins3 (Winston's) old stomping grounds. Thanks FSU #Bucs."

Defensive end Will Gholston joined in, too, retweeting a video of him working on his technique with Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end, Chris Doleman.

Winston, Evans, McCoy, Murphy, Ghloston and the rest of the Buccaneers will begin training camp on August 1st at One Buccaneer Place.
