Jameis Winston Trolls America with Crab Legs ... Or Maybe Not


The Jameis Winston crab leg thing just won’t go away.

After being selected No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Thursday night's NFL Draft, the former Florida State quarterback apparently celebrated his selection with crab legs. He posted the following image to Instagram and Twitter on draft night but later deleted the Instagram post.

Earlier in the draft process, Winston was counseled by Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch on how to handle the crab leg-theft incident in NFL Draft interviews.

Given Winston’s proximity to Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Fla., and oceanic dining, the crab leg meme might not fade away for a while.

UPDATE: Former Tampa Bay quarterback Shaun King defending Winston for the image, saying the image wasn't intended as a jab at all.
