Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David praised the work ethic of ex-teammate and current New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston in an interview with ESPN's Jordan Schultz on Saturday:

Jordan Schultz @Schultz_Report

Lavonte David talks @Jaboowins and why he’ll find success moving forward. Where should Jameis sign after this season with the Saints? (Don’t forget he’s still just 26 years old!) https://t.co/Q1OGtQV0Sf

David isn't the only former teammate who has done so, as wide receiver Mike Evans said the following to reporters last August, per Mark Cook of Pewter Report:

"He's always been the hardest worker I've known. That's no disrespect to anybody. I've been around a lot of hard workers, but he's definitely the hardest worker that I've been around."

Tampa Bay parted ways with Winston after his fifth-year option expired. He joined the Saints as a backup on a one-year deal behind starter Drew Brees.
