Championship ink: Antoine Winfield Jr. shows off new tattoo commemorating Tampa Bay's Super Bowl season
It wasn’t likely that Tampa Bay rookie safety and former Minnesota Golden Gophers star Antoine Winfield Jr. would forget his rookie season. Not only did he carve out a starting role and play a vital role in the Buccaneers’ success during the 2020 season, he was part of a Super Bowl squad.
Winfield was a major factor in Tampa Bay’s 31-9 victory over Kansas City in Super Bowl LV, recording 6 tackles, 2 passes defended and an interception. Not a bad way to end a strong rookie season.
This week, Winfield showed off some of his championship ink, commemorating the memorable season in Tampa. Below is the image of the safety’s new tattoo, which he shared on social media:

That’s a pretty cool way to remember the victory and celebrate the accomplishment.
Winfield made 64 tackles, defended 6 passes, forced 2 fumbles and recorded an interception during the regular season for the Bucs, with the team finishing 11-5. In the playoffs, he piled up 18 tackles, forced a fumble and had another pick.
One season in and Winfield’s future is already looking really bright in the NFL.
