Saints player that must step up: Jameis Winston

Jameis Winston went from the most prolific passer in the NFL with over 5,000 yards in 2019 to a backup in 2020. No, there was no injury involved as I’m sure many of you know. It was the 30 interceptions that he threw.

Thankfully, LASIK should be able to help with that. Now, after a season behind Drew Brees, there’s hope that Winston can take his game back to that level while limiting his turnovers. Sean Payton should be able to help with that as well.

To be fair to Winston, in 2019, he also threw for the league’s most attempts, so he was used frequently.

It’s not an excuse for his turnover problem, but it is an out for him. Nonetheless, he can drive the ball, and that big-play ability is something the Saints have missed out on with Brees captaining the offense these past few seasons.

If Winston steps up in a big way this coming season, there’s no reason the Saints can’t win ten or more games.
