The Dallas Cowboys need to trade for Jameis Winston as the Saints can provide them with the one-year rental they need to make something of the 2020 season.
Jameis Winston signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints this past offseason. He could’ve gone elsewhere and made much more money, but he decided to stay and learn behind Drew Brees and Sean Payton.
Winston knew that he had a problem.
While he led the league in yards in 2019, he also led it in interceptions. Coming to train behind one of the best quarterbacks ever may have been one of Winston’s smartest moves. However, his time may be coming to an end, a move that’d likely be a win-win-win for all parties involved.
With the November 3 trade deadline creeping up, the Saints may want to find Winston a new home. The Dallas Cowboys, who have lost Dak Prescott for the season, may be the perfect place. He’ll have everything quarterback needs to succeed.
The Cowboys had one of the best backup quarterbacks in former All-Pro Andy Dalton. Dalton left Cincinnati after they added No. 1 overall draft pick, Joe Burrow.
He had his chance to shine, and his Cowboys were smoked by the Cardinals in his first start. His offense stalled drive after drive with the only touchdown coming from a late fourth-quarter, garbage time drive.
He may get better, but his ceiling won’t take Dallas to a Super Bowl, Jameis’ could. Everyone saw Jameis big-time arm last season, throwing for the third-most 21-plus-yard passes last season.
With Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup to go along with Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys have one of the best skill-player groups in the league. Now they just need a leader to take them to the next level. With a Dak-like build and athleticism, Winston could be that star.
Having yet to step on the field for New Orleans in a game, the Saints should bank on Brees not getting injured and find some return for Winston, who will likely walk at the end of the season regardless.
