The Uber driver who accused Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston of assaulting her has released a statement through her attorney, John Clune, acknowledging the NFL’s work during its seven-month investigation that ultimately resulted in a three-game suspension for Winston.

The league began its investigation in November 2017 when the woman, who identified herself as “Kate,” told BuzzFeed that Winston reached over and grabbed her crotch while waiting at a drive-thru in March 2016 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Now it looks like more fallout from the suspension, as Jameis Winston’s agents will no longer be representing him. Was it him or them? Hard to say.
Bucs QB Jameis Winston is no longer represented by agents Greg Genske and Kenny Felder, who were with him since before draft. Felder declines to comment on whether the move was his or Winston’s. @ProFootballTalk had news first.

I imagine this decision was his agent's, and that the agents found out information throughout the NFL's investigative process that made them uncomfortable to continue representing him. One day, I hope we hear the NFL's full findings.
