Jameis Winston

FL State Atty Meggs Takes Pot Shot

Heisman Winner Lacks Character

Jameis Winston got slammed today by the Florida State Attorney -- who says the Heisman winner wouldn't have gotten his vote for the award because he's no AJ McCarron.

Willie Meggs -- the man who cleared Winston of rape accusations -- went on Sports Talk Florida today ... and said he was pulling for the Alabama QB to win the Heisman because, "He was a person of great character."

Translation: Meggs let Winston walk, but he clearly thinks he's lacking as a person off the field. 

Interesting that Meggs -- who knows all the details of what went down between Jameis and the accuser -- chose to take such a public shot at the Florida State star.

Wait a minuete here, you made jokes and laughed your way through a news conference about a sexual assault and you're judging someone else's character?!?! Please be careful you don't get hurt falling off that high horse you're on.

Winston was NOT cleared. They declined to prosecute because the Tallahassee police department sabotaged the investigation to the point that there would be no way anyone could prosecute. Huge difference.

Okay tmz. I read your little article, listened to the sound byte you so conviently posted. And nowhere does it say that Winston lacked character off the field. I am not a troll and I am not a hater. But come on tmz. If you're going to post things about an attorney talking **** about his client atleast for your sake and credibilty get the ****ing story straight. The guy is probably a Bama fan and just wanted AJ to win. All you do is start **** and kick dirt up. Obviously the comments below will read "if u hate tmz y R you on the sight you phaggit" I'm just trying to set YOUR story straight

He looks like a Bama fan. Every one can't date top models. A has four years in the spot l light. Winston barely have a year. It just happen a harlot is trying to come up. She delaying her suit because he doesn't have anything. As soon as he starts making money, she will Sue.

Because he was pressured into not pressing charges and he will probably be haunted by it the rest of his life while eager football fans are more than happy to ignore this. There was too much money at stake here. I hope this girl sues this fool and makes him testify instead of settling. I'd love to hear under oath what his story is, as well as his teammates who tried to join in

QBs who win the Heisman always suck in the NFL.
