Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston dreams of him and wide receiver Mike Evans becoming the next Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.

The quarterback said on the team’s official website that he has set himself and his wide receiver big targets for the future.

He said: "I'm a big dreamer and I always tell Mike, 'Mike: Joe Montana, Jerry Rice,' just things like that, building our heads up. That was one of the best duos of all time. But I love this game of football so much, so I try to relate me and a great receiver like him to other players that have done it before ..."

No doubt Winston and Evans will have some sort of success with each other during however long of a time period they are together at the Bucs. To set yourself and your wide receiver compadre the target to be as great as Montana and Rice is fantastic, but you know what they say, don’t bite off more than you can chew.

Winston may live to regret the optimism he has given to the Bucs fans listening if he doesn’t live up to this expectation. The number one overall pick of the 2015 draft didn’t have the best of first preseason games, but he has told fans not to worry.

He said on Tuesday night on WDAE-AM, via "Fans, please don't panic about one half of football. Please, there's no reason to. We did some great things and we're going to build on the positives."

The real first test of character will come in the season opener against the Tennessee Titans. We’ll have to wait till then to see if any sign of the former 49ers quarterback appears in the rookie.
