Bucs looking at virtual reality system to help Jameis Winston

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be relying heavily on quarterback Jameis Winston, who the team selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

In order for Winston to help the Buccaneers as much as possible, the team will need to ensure he is set up for success and that he has a firm understanding of the offense when the regular season rolls around.

Tampa Bay seems willing to go to great lengths to help Winston and they are even considering a virtual reality system, according to FOX Sports.

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said that the team is interested in “purchasing a system that would allow quarterbacks to see and hear a practice snap from a 360-degree perspective.”

“It might be good for Jameis,” Koetter added. “He is a film junkie. We have looked into that.

“What I tell vendors that come in to show us stuff is that we need it today. Some people tell us, ‘This will be ready in three months.’ I say, ‘No, Jameis needs this tomorrow.'”


The Cowboys recently purchased a virtual reality system that allows their quarterbacks and linebackers to adjust film, along with getting live 3D looks from all angles during practice.

“I visualize the concept and go through my reads with no one out there,” Winston said. “I haven’t done any virtual things. I know the Cowboys have got it.”

It will certainly be interesting to see if the Buccaneers can find the right technology and whether it will be able to help Winston on the field.
