Jameis Winston countersues accuser

Former Florida State Seminoles and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has fired back at his accuser, Erica Kinsman, with a countersuit in federal court.

Winston filed the lawsuit on Friday night in Orlando.

Patrik Nohe of Tomahawk Nation was the first to report the news.

Winston is countersuing Kinsman for defamation, defamation per se and tortious interference with prospective business advantage. Winston claims that Kinsman knowingly passed along a lie, slandered him and cost him some potential earnings.

It will be interesting to see how the countersuit plays out.
