Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston has found another way to keep his name in the headlines. Unfortunately, this time has nothing to do with football.
Since Winston won the Heisman trophy last year, he’s been in the spotlight for everything other than football. With his alleged rape case still being investigated, Winston now has to deal with the possibility of being suspended for a few games after it was found that he signed his name to a few thousand pieces of memorabilia.
According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, James Spence Authentication has more than 2,000 authentic items signed by the Florida State quarterback on its website.
The owner of the company has declined to identify how the items have been acquired. However, James Spence told Rovell that no one from Florida State had attempted to determine how the signatures were authenticated.
That’s the only thing that is saving Winston right now.
Unlike University of Georgia running back Todd Gurly. Gurly was suspended indefinitely after it was found that he was paid to sign his name to some pieces of memoribilia for a company.
Gurley was suspended for last weeks game against Missouri and does not expect to play against the University of Arkansas this weekend either.
Meanwhile, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher has made no mention that Winston would not play in this weeks game against Notre Dame.
