Jameis Winston still squinting, having trouble with his vision?
Jameis Winston has thrown so many interceptions during his NFL career that it is fair to wonder if he is seeing the field correctly, and we don’t mean that in the sense of reading a defense. Winston has had some issues with his vision in the past, which is why it was noteworthy that he was seen squinting during Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Winston watched as Seahawks kicker Jason Meyers tried to give Seattle a win with a 40-yard field goal attempt at the end of regulation, and the quarterback was shown squinting.

Of course, squinting can just be a habit and doesn’t always mean a person is having trouble seeing. However, we know from Winston’s days at Florida State that he needs contact lenses but never used to like wearing them when he played. That led to times when it looked like he was having trouble seeing plays that were being relayed from the sideline. Bucs fans have noticed him giving the same look during games this season.
Winston already has 12 picks in eight games this year, and he’s constantly making poor decisions and throwing into double coverage. Head coach Bruce Arians recently defended him over the turnovers, and it would be hard to believe he wouldn’t have corrected his vision by now if it was truly an issue. But if Winston’s vision is less than 20-20 during games, he might want to address that.
