Jameis Winston excited to work with Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston reveals that he is excited to work with wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans.

Jameis Winston has revealed that he is looking forward to working with wide receivers Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson after being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this year's NFL Draft.

The former Heisman Trophy winner was the first pick in this year's Draft, and has also signed his rookie contract with the NFC South side, who had the worst record in the league last season.

The quarterback said at his first team press conference: "There's two, man! Two of them! Oh my gosh, two 6-5 guys that can make plays after the ball. My friend. Anyone can go out there and throw to those guys, man. It's definitely a blessing to have those guys.

"I'm looking forward to working with the other weapons as well, with Louis Murphy and even Doug Martin, and just learning my offensive line and just getting in there to work with everybody. This is going to be a great journey and it all starts with hard work and dedication and sacrifices."

Jackson has over 8,000 receiving yards and 54 touchdowns since entering the league in 2005, while Evans had 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first year with the team.
