Jameis Winston Baseball Update [VIDEO]: FSU Quarterback Says He'll Play Football For At Least Two More Years, 'I'm A Big Baseball Person'
Jameis Winston said that he does indeed plan on playing baseball this season, but that doesn't mean that the FSU quarterback is ready to turn in his shoulder pads just yet. The Heisman winner said recently that head coach Jimbo Fisher was spot on when he said that the signal caller will likely play two more years of football.

Fisher told the Associated Press on Thursday that he and Fisher have a good relationship and also backed up Fisher's claim that the quarterback will play at least two more years in Tallahassee, saying that, "whatever he says is likely true."
Winston also said he does plan on playing baseball.
"Obviously I'm a big baseball person, so that's an accurate statement because I plan on playing baseball next season anyway," Winston told the Associated Press.
The red-shirt freshman is expected to be Florida State's closer come this baseball season before once again suiting up under center for the football team. Winston isn't eligible for this year's NFL Draft, but according to ESPN many draft experts believe he'd be a No.1 overall pick this May had he been eligible to be selected.
Winston, 20, will be eligible for the draft in 2015, but Fisher isn't worried about him leaving after this season.
"Everybody says, well he's going to stay one [more] year and leave. ... I think it'll be two," Fisher said via ESPN.
Winston, meanwhile, isn't looking that far ahead.
"Obviously, I'm not even worried about the draft and stuff like that," Winston said Thursday per the Associated Press. "I'm worried about winning championships here at Florida State."
In his first season under center for the Seminoles, Winston went 257-for-384 (66.9%) for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
