Jameis Winston Autographs Investigated by Florida State


First Todd Gurley, now Jameis Winston?

According to new reports, Florida State is looking into an autograph authentication business that was linked to Jameis Winston and also linked to Georgia running back Todd Gurley.

Gurley was obviously suspended indefinitely by Georgia last week under suspicion that he might have sold autographs for money.

In the ESPN report you can see here, a James Spence Authentication is linked to 340 certified Winston autographs.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher asked Winston if he signed autographs for money after the Seminoles’ 38-20 win over Syracuse Saturday, according to the report, and Winston said he didn’t.

Fisher said he doesn’t believe Winston signed autographs for money, but the university is still looking into the situation.

Here’s my take on all of this: let him go! Let Todd Gurley back as well.

More from ACC

It’s one thing to not pay student athletes from the schools’ perspectives. It’s another thing entirely to say they can’t profit off of their own brand name.

Personally, this is good news to me. College football stars should begin to openly sign autographs for money and defy the NCAA, hopefully embarrassing it enough that they get rid of this stupid rule.

The rule is pure greed by the NCAA. Players should be entitled to profit off themselves, even if they can’t get paid by the school.

I’m calling on Marcus Mariota, Melvin Gordon, Dak Prescott, Kenny Hill, and other college stars to do that. Send a message to the NCAA that this is the stupidest rule in all of sports.
