The 2016 NFL season is edging ever closer and with the draft now behind us, all eyes are looking ahead to training camps.
While the upcoming season will surely see a lot of attention go to the first and second pick quarterbacks from the draft with Jared Goff playing for the LA Rams and Carson Wentz signed to the Philadelphia Eagles.
A new Winston?
But with the eyes of the league on this year's rookie quarterback pairing, one member of last year's QB duo has made a big statement for his second year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston had a good rookie year but he could be prepared to have an even better one in 2016.
Winston had over 4,000 passing yards and 22 touchdowns in his rookie year but with a lot of weapons on offense in Tampa, could he be about to explode?
Well Winston has done his part as rumours that he has worked out hard over the off-season leading to him slimming down.
Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans has revealed a funny story that happened between him and his quarterback.
"I was joking with him the other day. He took his shirt off, and I said 'Man, what happened to the belly?' He's got a six-pack like me. He's put in a tremendous amount of work and I think it's going to be a great year for him and this whole team."
It seems like Winston has done a lot of preparation ahead of his second year and he will need all of the skill he can find to improve on Tampa's 6-10 record from last year.
Trying to capitalise
The Buccaneers went 6-10 last year and finished bottom of the NFC South - a division that should be very competitive once again in 2016.
With the seemingly unstoppable Carolina Panthers favourites for the division title again in 2016, can the Buccaneers rise above the Atlanta Falcons or New Orleans Saints to avoid finishing bottom of the division and possibly even make a run at the wild card play-off places?
