NFL Notes: Buccaneers, Packers, Panthers, & Redskins


Buccaneers GM Jason Licht mentioned that they’ve been extremely impressed with No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston since he arrived to minicamp last week.

“I told my wife, Blair, ‘I gave him an A,”’ Licht said, via USA Today. “I thought it was a great day. He knew the offense already. He wasn’t overwhelmed.

He was even a little ahead of the game. He was already trying to change protections. The coaches were like, ‘Wait up. Hold on.’

“You’re right. But the other guys aren’t there yet.”‘
