Former Rugby Star Jarryd Hayne Gets 53-Yard Run in 49ers Debut (Video)
Jameis Winston Debut Results in a 40-Yard Pass and a TD Run (Video)
Last night’s Jameis Winston debut in the preseason matchup between the Bucs and the Vikings saw the touted FSU star struggle a little in his first appearance, but he did manage to create a few highlight-worthy plays.
It took until almost three minutes left in the first quarter for Jameis to connect, but when he finally did, it was a 40-yard doozy to Vincent Jackson. Not bad, even if it took a little while to get things going.
He was also able to score a TD on the ground, which I suppose speaks well to his versatility, even if he’s not known as a particularly good scrambling QB.

Of course, he’s likely not matching up against a starting defense, but this Jameis Winston debut shows that he managed to work with what he was given. It’s not a resounding performance or anything, but it likely won’t give critics any huge fuel, which means Winston might be in for a slightly more peaceful pre-season, press-wise.
