Keyshawn Johnson: There is ‘something wrong mentally’ with Jameis Winston
Keyshawn Johnson is a former NFL star who should know plenty about becoming a distraction to his team, but he clearly feels that the issues Jameis Winston is dealing with go far beyond that.
Speaking on his KSPN-AM 710 radio show this week, Johnson said he couldn’t help but draw the conclusion that there is “something wrong mentally” with Winston after he heard about the alleged incident involving the quarterback and an Uber driver.
“When I saw [the Jameis report] I thought, ‘Man, you just can’t stay out of trouble,’” Johnson said, as transcribed by JoeBucsFan.com. “And there’s something, and I’m not a doctor, nor do I plan on being, but there’s something wrong with you. If this is in fact true, the fact that you keep coming up with some type of sexual behavioral problems towards women, there’s something wrong mentally. I don’t care what anyone says. There’s something wrong.”
Winston, of course, has been suspended three games after he was accused of inappropriately touching an Uber driver in Arizona back in 2016. The woman went public with the allegations last year, claiming Winston grabbed her crotch without consent in a drive-through line at a fast food restaurant. Ronald Darby, Winston’s former teammate at Florida State, vouched for the QB and said he was also in the car and that nothing happened. However, details that have been pieced together make it seem like Winston took a separate Uber ride that same night without Darby, which is when the alleged incident took place.
Winston was infamously accused of rape while at Florida State, and he was also suspended by the Seminoles at one point for standing on a table in public and yelling an inappropriate sexual phrase. Those are the incidents Johnson is referring to when he says Winston has “sexual behavior problems toward women.”
Johnson was arrested for domestic violence back in 2014, though he was cleared and never charged.
