Jameis Winston has "reached an agreement" to settle the sexual battery lawsuit filed against him by an Uber driver in Arizona ... this according to court docs filed in U.S. District Court.
As we previously reported, the Uber driver claimed she picked up a drunk Winston from the Scottsdale bar scene in 2016 ... and during the ride, he reached over and grabbed her vagina over her yoga pants.
Two years later, the woman -- who goes by "Kate P." in legal docs -- filed suit against the Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback.
In new docs filed in federal court in Arizona on Nov. 26, the woman's lawyer says "Plaintiff has reached an agreement with Defendant to resolve her claims."
"The parties are in the process of finalizing a settlement agreement but need approximately 10 days to complete this process."
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed in the court docs. We've reached out to Winston's camp for comment, so far no word back.
For his part, Jameis has previously publicly apologized to the Uber driver and claims he has "eliminated alcohol from my life."
