Bucs center addresses sideline scuffle with Jameis Winston
Tampa Bay Buccaneers center Ryan Jensen addressed his sideline scuffle with Jameis Winston following the team’s 8-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Jensen and Winston got into a heated sideline exchange during the contest. Jensen could be seen pointing at Winston, whose eyes grew large as he said “one time” to Jensen in response.
I hope Jensen yells at Jameis Winston next time he throws the ball directly to the other team if Winston's gonna yell at him for a penalty pic.twitter.com/nOlL3xE346

Jensen downplayed the matter after the game, saying the two had cleared the air and the issue was a matter of competitive energy coming out.

The Bucs were up 14-3 in the game and ended up losing 28-14, so they had plenty of reasons to be frustrated. Winston was just 18/38 for 213 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception. He rushed 5 times for 47 yards.
