TAMPA — Nike has opted not to renew its endorsement contract with Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who is suspended from the first three regular-season games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, ESPN reported.

Winston, 24, has worked with Nike since before his rookie season in 2015. ESPN reported that his contract with Nike expired before the league announced his suspension in late June.

Calls from the Tampa Bay Times to Nike and to Winston's representatives seeking comment and confirmation were not returned Friday.
