The NFL suspended Winston, the Buccaneers quarterback, for the first three games of the upcoming season after he allegedly groped a female Uber driver's crotch in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016.

Today marks a full week since news first broke that Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston would be facing a three-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, and while the team and its fans wait for official word from the league, the B.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero later reported that Winston will not appeal the ban, according to a source, calling the NFL's decision a "negotiated settlement".

Winston was punished for violating the league's personal conduct policy after not properly reporting the incident to the NFL. Breer said there was "mutual benefit", because the league would not receive the months of negative publicity that can accompany a long appeals process, and because the player would not have to serve a suspension that's too lengthy.

Last week, we found out that Winston was a passenger in two Uber rides that night; Winston was in the backseat with Darby during the first one, but after a night of partying, Winston's two friends sent him home alone.

Many felt Winston got off easy and Twitter users have expressed disappointment as well. "It is uncharacteristic of me and I genuinely apologize", Winston said in a statement.

The NFL made the decision to suspend Winston under the terms of its personal conduct policy, which holds players to a standard of behavior that does not require a conviction.

At the time, Winston denied the allegations and Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby (left) later claimed to be in the backseat of the auto with Winston, adding that nothing occurred.

It struck exclusive deals with the National Football League and National Basketball League and even garnered a slew of major award nominations.

Winston's potential suspension was initially reported last week, but became official withe the National Football League announcement Thursday.

According to Buzzfeed News, which originally reported the story in November 2017, Winston got into the driver's vehicle around 2 a.m. and grabbed her crotch while they were waiting in a drive-thru line.

"First and foremost, I would like to say I'm sorry to the Uber driver for the position I put you in", Winston said in a prepared statement.

Additionally, under the terms of the punishment, Winston must "obtain a clinical evaluation and fully cooperate in any recommended program of therapeutic intervention" from the league.

Winston's statement regarding the Uber driver continues as follows. "I am confident that nothing inappropriate in nature happened in the vehicle that evening and Jameis did not have any physical contact with the Uber driver", Darby said.

In 2014, Winston was ordered to do 20 hours of community service after being caught stealing crab legs from a Tallahassee grocery store.

The former FSU star's statement included an apology for the incident. Backup Ryan Fitzpatrick likely will take Winston's place as the starter for the first three games, but he can practice and play in preseason games up until that point.
