Former FSU QB Jameis Winston Now Has 3rd-Most Passing Yards For Rookie In NFL History

In his first NFL season, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has already changed the direction of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization, and has also began to etch his name in the NFL history books. 

Sunday against the Panthers, Winston surpassed future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning's rookie passing total and now has the third-most passing yards for a rookie quarterback in NFL history with 3,740+, behind only Andrew Luck and Cam Newton, respectively.
