The Facts: One of the key tasks awaiting Bruce Arians when he was named head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was to see if he could salvage Winston, a former No. 1 overall pick. While it’s still really early in the offseason, Arians has been impressed by some of the things he’s seen from Winston on the field. “It’s amazing. I mean, he was getting the third and fourth reads quickly today," Arians said. “There was a lot of movement from quarters, to single high to man. I was extremely pleased with that part of it. I don’t think the defense got their hands on any of his (passes)."
Diehards Line: As PFT notes, offseason work is still heavily restricted at this point in the calendar and there is only so much teams can do. Nevertheless, Winston has appeared to make a strong first impression on his new coach.

He runs the show. Even though they’re the puppets. We’re all on a string, but he’s pulling it. ...” The Buccaneers, with some great components in the passing attack, will be a team fantasy owners watch closely in coming weeks.
