Number One: Experience
A lot of people, when they think about New Orleans Saints signal-caller Jameis Winston, tend to directly link him to his 30 interception season he had just a season ago, but he does have six seasons of NFL experience and a Pro Bowl to his name.
It’s time to acknowledge the fact that the Saints may have the best backup quarterback in the entire NFL, and they’re paying him less than they pay their kicker.
Winston, 26, has completed 61.4 percent of his passes, tossed 19,812 passing yards, thrown 121 touchdowns, and has thrown 88 interceptions in his career. Winston also adds agility to the Saints offense which the team didn’t necessarily have with Drew Brees.
Winston has ran the ball 255 times in his career accumulating 1,039 rushing yards and ten touchdowns.
Winston possesses some extra agility which can help him break tackles in the backfield, which we saw him show off a little bit in the second half against the San Francisco 49ers. If Winston can use his experience to his advantage, the sky is truly the limit for his potential upside.
