Jameis Winston, QB

The New Orleans Saints are faced with a decision that not very many NFL franchises have gone through. They are trying to replace a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback who has been the starter on the team for over the last decade.

The former NFL passing leader with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in and immediately made noise in the Saints’ camp. However, when Drew Brees went down with an injury mid-season, it was Taysom Hill who replaced Brees — not Winston.

Many speculated that Payton didn’t want to “showcase” Winston like he did the previous season with Teddy Bridgewater that led him to sign for more money with a rival team. New Orleans is already up against the cap and can’t afford a “big-name” player to replace Brees.

We already know that the Saints want Jameis Winston, but how bad does Winston want the Saints. That will show come free agency. Either way, Winston should be a pursue, the Saints need him under center next year.

Pass or Pursue Verdict: PURSUE
