The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran quarterback Jameis Winston one season after watching him throw a league-high 30 interceptions.
In an odd turn of events, the second NFC South quarterback from 2019 had flipped sides to a divisional foe. First, it was Teddy Bridgewater leaving the New Orleans Saints for the Carolina Panthers, and now it’s Winston leaving Tampa Bay for new Orleans.
He’ll be joining the Saints, who are coming off a 13-3 season and could be looking at a roster equally as talented returning. Adding on an extremely capable quarterback who lead the league’s in yards a season ago could be paramount for their success.
That said, for those who didn’t see this coming, the response may be ire. Any quarterback who’s capable of throwing 30 interceptions in a single season shouldn’t be worth two nickels, let alone a one year deal.
Not so fast.
Hold on tight to your crab legs, while I give you three reasons why Jameis Winston and the New Orleans Saints are the perfect combination.
