(CBSSports.com)—Former Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston is widely expected to be one of the first picks off the board in this year’s NFL Draft. Most mocks have the Buccaneers selecting him with the first overall pick.

But Jameis won’t be on hand to find out. According to Sports Illustrated‘s Peter King, Winston plans to watch the draft from home rather than heading to Chicago to hear his name called and shake hands with the commissioner.

This report from King follows another from last week where he stated that Winston met with Roger Goodell in New York, where the quarterback apparently tried to make a good impression on the commish.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
