Jameis Winston’s off-field maturity has been questioned since his numerous transgressions during his time at Florida State.

Now, even his attorney is questioning if Winston is ready for life off the field as an NFL star.

Speaking at Villanova’s Moorad Sports Law symposium, David Cornwell, according to multiple reports, said “Jameis is ready to be an NFL player on the field. He’s not ready to be an NFL player off the field.”

He faced a sexual assault allegation, but was never charged in the alleged incident. He walked out of a supermarket without paying for $32 worth of crab legs and suspended three baseball games, then missed a football game after climbing on a table in the FSU student union and shouting an “offensive and vulgar” comment about women.

Cornwell attempted to backtrack from those remarks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hold the No. 1 pick in the draft and have worked out Winston and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
