  Antoine Winfield, Jr. Fined For Mocking Tyreek Hill During Super Bowl LV
Tampa Bay Buccaneers de- fensive back Antoine Win- field, Jr. didn't escape Super Bowl LV without a fine. The NFL announced a $7,815 fine for Winfield on Saturday after Winfield taunted Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill during the Super Bowl.
The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of the contest. With time running out, the Chiefs failed to convert on a 4th down play. Winfield happened to be close to Hill after the turnover on downs, and could- n't help holding up a peace sign directly in Hill's face.
Terrell Owens Still Won’t Go To The Hall Of Fame
Hall of Fame receiver Ter- rell Owens hasn’t been to the Hall of Fame, and he still has no intention of going.
“This past weekend was a further indication of why I wouldn’t go,” Owens told Newsday. “No disrespect to anybody that got in, but I just don’t understand the process. Calvin Johnson got in [on the first ballot]. This has nothing to do with Calvin himself. The guy was a beast. But there’s no justification when you have [re- ceivers Torry Holt and Reg- gie Wayne] that have done equal or greater things.”
Johnson’s election on the first ballot remains confusing, given that he spent only nine seasons in the NFL and never played for a team that won a playoff game. He’s 32nd on the all-time receiving yardage list, well behind Wayne and Holt.
Owens, who made it to Canton on the third try but should have made it on the first, boycotted the ceremony, hold- ing his own event at the Univer- sity of Tennessee-Chattanooga.
Jameis Winston Rumors:
QB 'Intrigued' By Free Agency
Despite Saints' Interest
 Even though Jameis Winston fell behind Taysom Hill in the pecking order last season, the free- agent quarterback is report- edly considering a return to the New Orleans Saints.
The Saints have a big in- terest in re-signing him and that Winston is "intrigued by that."
After spending five sea- sons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a starting quarterback, Winston took a back seat to Drew Brees in 2020 with the Saints. He re- mained a backup even when Brees suffered a rib injury, as Hill started four games. Brees stated to Winston that this is his team now.
The Saints are now preparing for the future at the position with Brees expected to retire this offseason.
Despite the limited play- ing time, New Orleans coach Sean Payton gave high praise to the quarterback.
Winston went 7-of-11 for 75 yards during limited action in the regular season but showcased his upside throw- ing a 56-yard touchdown pass in the playoffs.
The 27-year-old showed his positives and negatives as
a starter in 2019, leading the NFL with 5,109 passing yards to go with 33 touchdown passes but also throwing a league-high 30 interceptions. Tampa Bay went 7-9 with Winston at the helm one year before Tom Brady led the squad to a Super Bowl title.
Considering the 2015 No. 1 overall draft pick only man- aged a one-year, $1.1 million contract last offseason, it could be difficult for him to find a better deal after mini- mal playing time in 2020. Winston may be signed for a two year, $35-40 million a year.
It could lead Winston back to New Orleans where he can try to win the starting job from Hill. Hill makes a stunning $12 million a year.
