Sign Jameis Winston
Give me a second to explain.
Jameis Winston is not a long-term solution. I repeat: Jameis Winston is not a long-term solution.
He is, however, a big-bodied risk-taker who, despite throwing 30 interceptions last season, still has a tremendous upside and plenty left in the tank.
Cam Newton is another option, but Newton has a considerable amount of wear-and-tear, and it’s likely the former MVP would want to wait for a starting position.
The best-case scenario: the Saints sign Jameis and he becomes their starter when Drew Brees calls it quits.
With the mentorship of Brees and coach Payton, Jameis is able to gain his confidence back and returns to form as the gunslinger he was meant to be, this time with Michael Thomas at his disposal.
Worst scenario: Jameis is just alright enough to keep Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas in town and competitive for a year while the Saints wait for a better prospect in the draft.
