Whether former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has character concerns may be a question better left for five years down the road.

I think that’s a mistake based on his career play. The Cowboys drafted Bruce Carter in the 2nd round in 2011 despite the fact that he tore his ACL late in his final collegiate season at North Carolina. Carter was limited...
