Tampa Bay Buccaneers turn to virtual reality to speed Jameis Winston's development at QB

Virtual reality should soon become a reality for Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The franchise plans to purchase a virtual reality system to aid in the development of its quarterbacks. The main beneficiary would be Winston, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
"It might be good for Jameis," Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter told FOX Sports. "He is a film junkie. We have looked into that."
Following the lead of college programs like Stanford and Clemson, the Dallas Cowboys became the first NFL team this offseason to use virtual reality. The Cowboys recently invested in a system that allows their quarterbacks to view and hear a practice snap from a 360-degree under-center perspective.
Because the play can be rewound endlessly, the QB can review every defensive read and perfect the pre-snap verbiage by making the call from inside a sound-proof room at Cowboys headquarters.
