This report by Schefter comes a day after ESPN Tallahassee host Jeff Cameron reported that Winston was preparing to be suspended by the NFL. He had said that the suspension would be for failing to let them know about a 2016 incident with an Uber driver in Arizona.
Last year, a woman claimed she was groped by Winston while driving him in March 2016. There have been conflicting stories since the circumstances surrounding the story. Even if Winston was not charged, the NFL has the power to suspend the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback on grounds of violating the personal conduct policy. He has the right to appeal the suspension.
