Jameis Winston enters the 2018 NFL season with a three-game suspension resulting from an alleged incident with an Uber driver a couple of years ago, in which Winston allegedly groped a female driver.

Winston's suspension was handed down nearly a month ago. Today, he showed up at Buccaneers training camp and answered questions publicly for the first time since he received the suspension.

During the media session, Winston issued an apology for his past behavior. And yet, it was another quote that received most of the attention.

Winston believes he is a great person, teammate, and leader. Here's what he had to say via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

Clearly Winston's comments angered some given the fact he's suspended for the first three games of the season due to inappropriate behavior.

In the meantime, Winston will be eligible to practice and play throughout the preseason. After the final preseason game, his suspension kicks in and he won't be able to take the field until the week before the Bucs' matchup against the Chicago Bears at the end of September.
