Jameis Winston

The New Orleans Saints seem like they’re on a path that will allow them to re-sign Jameis Winston. A priority for them this offseason, Winston didn’t get too much run even when Drew Brees was sidelined in 2020.

It was Taysom Hill who started in Brees’ absence, but it’s clear that Winston is the player the Saints want for their future. Winston’s most dazzling achievement was that he led the league in passing yards in 2019.

The problem with Winston is that he also threw for the most interceptions in the league that season. In early 2020, Winston did have LASIK to correct his nearsightedness. That may also help improve his accuracy.

With the threats that he has both in the backfield, in front of him, and on the edge, Winston just has to be a competent option for this team to be able to do big things. Head coach Sean Payton has faith in him, and it’s expected that they’ll be bringing him back this offseason.
