Marcellus Wiley Believes Jameis Winston Is "Falling On The Sword" For FSU Players And "Higher Ups" With Publix Crab Legs Story

If you thought the "Jameis Winston stole crab legs from a Publix" story that blew up the internet yesterday was done, you were wrong. Today, we've already have one grocery store troll Winston (and use his Heisman-winning name to promote their crab legs), and now a former Pro Bowler has launched a bit of a conspiracy theory on Twitter.

ESPN personality Marcellus Wiley took to Twitter today in defense of Winston, claiming that the quarterback is taking the fall for the program, and that Publix has been hooking up players for years.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel writer Omar Kelly seems to corroborate what Wiley is saying.

Florida State really doesn't need allegations like this floating around. It also doesn't seem to make sense that Publix would blow up this story on Jameis Winston of all players if they did have some arrangement with the Florida State program. We'll see if Wiley has more to add to this story.
