Florida State University has sent a cease-and-desist order to the creator of the T-shirts featuring redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston because the shirt bears an image of Winston, to which the fan does not have license.

The T-shirt features a picture of Winston photoshopped onto the body of Jesus Christ, with the quarterback's number 5 emblazoned on the chest.

According to a TMZ report, the fan says he sold 100 of his "Chosen One" shirts last weekend, for $20 apiece.

Winston has thrown for 718 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception, completing 78.1 percent of his passes through the team's first three games.

But a high-ranking source inside FSU's Athletic Department tells us they've fired off a cease and desist letter to the fan ... out of concern sale of the shirts could get Winston and FSU in trouble.
