This is bad for Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The NFL is planning to suspend Winston for three games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy in relation to an Uber incident in 2016, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The league began its investigation in November 2017 when a woman, who identified herself as “Kate,” told BuzzFeed that Winston reached over and grabbed her crotch while waiting at a drive-thru at Los Betos Mexican Food at 2 a.m.

Restaurant management told ESPN that they did not have security footage of the drive-thru. No police charges were filed but the driver did file a formal complaint with Uber. She told BuzzFeed that she wanted to tell the truth “about a powerful man who felt entitled to my body when all I wanted to do was my job.” Uber confirmed to ESPN that Winston’s riding privileges were revoked, but Winston did not notify the league of the complaint.
Winston would lose $124,000 in base salary for the three-game suspension, with his 2017 salary landing at $705,000. With the quarterback scheduled to make $20.9 million next season, Winston is unlikely to appeal.
