With free agency only a month away, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston underwent LASIK surgery to repair his vision.
This past season was quite the ride for Winston, who finished with 5,091 yards, 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. He was consistently inconsistent for the Buccaneers, and there are many people wondering if the Buccaneers even want him back this offseason.
On Wednesday, Winston’s spokeswoman released a statement on her client’s surgery and why he felt the need to get it. Although he has struggled over the past few years, the former No. 1 pick is clearly trying to improve his game.
“Jameis did not want to count out any options that he had that could possibly help him with the game he loves so much,” Denise White said. “He doesn’t want to miss out on any opportunity that presents itself.”

Regardless of all the jokes that were made at Winston’s expense, it’s nice to see just how committed he is to improving his production.
Winston doesn’t necessarily have issues seeing his wide receivers downfield, but Bruce Arians said in the past that he does struggle to see the scoreboard.
Maybe this procedure will help out Winston’s production next season. It’s still unclear at the moment where he’ll be playing in 2020.
