The Buccaneers said on Twitter that they are meeting with quarterback Jameis Winston on Tuesday.
Winston, who started two seasons at Florida State and won the Heisman Trophy in 2013, is considered a candidate to be selected by Tampa Bay with the No. 1 pick in the 2015 draft.
Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith indicated at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that the team is comfortable making Winston the face of the franchise.
“With the information we have right now, we haven’t taken him off of our list right now,” Smith said.
Yahoo Sports reported that the meeting on Tuesday is a "character visit."
