Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr. racked up 94 total tackles, along with three sacks, six passes defended, two forced fumbles, one interception and one fumble recovery during his stellar rookie season.
For the Buccaneers, who finished with an 11-5 regular season record, it ended with a Super Bowl LV championship. And to commemorate the dominant 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, Winfield Jr. had a giant Lombardi Trophy tattoo on his forearm.

Winfield posted the photo of his tattoo on his Instagram story on Monday. The tattoo extended from his elbow to his wrist. The top of the trophy was on his limb while the bottom “LV” went down to his wrist. The tattoo included the Buccaneers logo and two praying hands.
The tattoo prompted a response from quarterback Tom Brady, who commented on the photo of Winfield Jr.’s tattoo.

“Make sure you leave some space @antoinewinfieldjr,” Brady said referring to the Buccaneers chasing another Super Bowl title in 2021.
Winfield Jr. played despite an injury in Super Bowl LV, but late in the game, the rookie sensation had the last laugh with Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Winfield Jr. was fined more than $ 7,800 for taunting Hill with his trademark “peace sign.”

Winfield Jr. interrupted a pass on a fourth-down play during the game, throwing the “two” symbol that Hill typically displays when zipping past defenders and into the end zone for a touchdown.
Winfield told reporters he “had to” give Hill some kind of mockery.
“It’s something I had to do,” he said, via the New York Post. “When we played before, he turned around in front of my face and gave me the peace sign. So, it was okay for me to return the peace sign. It felt amazing doing that.
