Marcellus Wiley sticks up for Jameis Winston, claims he took the fall

Since the news broke on Wednesday that Florida State quarterback and Heisman winner Jameis Winston was issued a citation for shoplifting crab legs at a local Publix, the opinions–mostly jokes–have been rampant throughout the internet. However, former NFL star and current ESPN personality Marcellus Wiley has a different take on the incident.

Wiley took to twitter on Thursday to claim that Winston was merely a scapegoat for Publix supplying college athletes with free food for some time now.

Wiley then went on to criticize the people that were mad about the sexual assault investigation and how their agenda has changed.


We’ve heard a lot of comments on the matter since it came out to the public, but this is by far the most intriguing, if it is true what Wiley is claiming.
