Few rookie quarterbacks enter their NFL season with a target on their back like former Florida State star Jameis Winston has. The new Tampa Bay Buccaneers signal caller begins his pro career after a fantastic, and very controversial college career. Ahead of Tampa Bay's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, the chance to sack Winston was even the subject of former Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd's dreams.

Winston was sacked twice in the game, a 26-16 Vikings win, but Everson Griffen and Gerald Hodges had the pleasure of knocking Winston into the turf. Floyd doesn't appear in NFL.com's box score, while Winston had a mixed preseason debut, going 9-for-19 for 131 yards with an interception, and rushing for 18 yards and a touchdown.
