After a photo surfaced last week of Jameis Winston looking sort of pudgy, everyone rushed to make jokes (mostly about him eating too many crab legs). 

Winston's private quarterback coach, George Whitfield Jr., blamed Winston's pronounced gut on the rope tied around his waist. 

Winston weighed in at 231 pounds at the combine, putting an end to the talk about his fatness.

"A lot of people thought I was fat," Winston told reporters Friday. "I'm here proving everybody wrong. I look good, and I know it."
