A couple hours after he was drafted No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL Draft Thursday night, Jameis Winston posted a photo of himself eating some crab legs.
The photo, unsurprisingly, went viral, as Winston got himself into some trouble last spring when he took crab legs from a Publix without paying for them.
Winston later deleted the photo – Tampa Bay executives reportedly told him to do so – and commented on it during an introductory press conference Friday afternoon. He says it was a simple “thank you” to Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch, who gave them to him as a congratulatory gift.
Jameis Winston on crab-leg photo said it was just a thank-you to captain from Deadliest Catch. Wasn’t meant as anything else.

Jameis on crab leg photo: ‘that was just a thank you. I had to thank him for donating those crab legs.’

Hopefully this is the last time we have to write about crab legs.
