Last night we saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers do as we all expected and select Jameis Winston with the first overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Last night, just hours into life as a pro football player, we also saw the former Florida State Seminoles quarterback do as we all have come to expect and cause debate with his actions.
Leave it in the past
Not present at the actual Draft event in Chicago, Winston took in the occasion back in his home state of Alabama. It was there that a photo he posted online - an image he has since deleted this morning - managed to stir up heated debate, reminding some of the question marks over his name heading into the big night.
The incriminating image? In a move that drew big laughs across social media, Jameis Winston posted a picture to Instagram showing off his celebratory meal of choice - crabs legs.
Of course the cuisine wasn't a coincidence. Crabs legs and Winston go hand in hand ever since the young QB was caught 'shoplifting' the food from a local store during his Seminoles days. A move that led to huge criticism, as well as community service and a citation from police.
Winston divided opinion throughout his time in college football - his 26-1 record jarring with several off-field issues - so it makes sense not to break with tradition now that he is in the pros, right?
The picture has now been deleted from Winston's official account, leading some to assume that Tampa Bay officials were less than impressed with their latest arrival drawing attention to his past troubles.
That may have been the case but Bucs head coach Lovie Smith at least didn't seem to have a problem with the antagonizing photo. He, via the Mike & Mike show, said this morning that it was "no concern" to him.
Winning people over
The crab legs photo itself would hardly even register on Jameis Winston's list of misdemeanours and accusations.
The fact though that he made the move just hours after proving his doubters wrong in becoming the first overall selection of the 2015 draft does suggest that, still only 21 years of age, Winston still has some maturing to do.
He might have felt the need to rub it in a little but the Bucs hierarchy will likely be hoping he learns a little humility to combine with undoubted talent moving forward.
