Bucs have 99 problems, Jay Z isn't one: Rapper lifts weights at One Buc Place and receives jersey from Jameis Winston



Jameis Winston doesn't have much competition for his job, but the Bucs star quarterback was upstaged by Jay Z, who visited the team's training facility Tuesday and Wednesday.

The hip-hop mogul was in town with his wife Beyonce, who was doing a site visit at Raymond James Stadium in preparation for her April 29 concert in Tampa.

The Tampa Sports Authority contacted the Bucs Tuesday about Jay Z's interest in getting a workout at the team's training facility across the street from RJS. He arrived in a golf cart about an hour later, but by then, most if not all of the players had left off-season workouts for the day.

Jay Z returned for another lift Wednesday, and this time he was greeted by Winston, who presentred the Roc with a personalized Tampa Bay jersey. He also took a picture with tackle Donovan Smith and defensive tackle William Gholston.

"You know I'm coming for your job, right?' Jay Z told Winston.

Winston offered to throw with Jay Z on the practice fields, but he declined. The Bucs have 99 problems, but quarterback isn't one.
