The New Orleans Saints don't have an answer yet for who will be starting against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It sure is an interesting approach for the Saints.
The New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have certainly seen their NFC South rivalry ramp up in recent years. The fact that Jameis Winston, the man the Bucs once selected number one overall, signed with the Saints, then re-signed again, it was just another little layer. Naturally, you would be justified in assuming that he would be the perfect starter for this game, especially with both teams 2-1.
Well, you know what they say about assuming, and the Saints agree.
As reported by Erin Summers, the official reporter for the team, as she echoed Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael, the starting quarterback for Sunday's game agianst the Bucs is very much still up in the air.
It certainly is curious, especially considering Winston was brought back this offseason for this exact scenario, even if that move raised some eyebrows. Plus, when you remember that when he was injured the last time he started against the Bucs, he had been playing well.
Jake Luton was recently brought in in the aftermath of the Derek Carr injury, but he won't be starting. This means, we can very well still get the Taysom Hill experiment once again, and see the (supposed) tight end ast QB1. It's not like it would be the first time or anything.
The main thing though, is that announcing you don't know who is starting quarterback on Thursday when the game is on Sunday is also something that some would find to be a little concerning.
Fortunately, the New Orleans Saints still have this defense they can always fall back on. That said, knowing for sure who is playing quarterback would also be kind of nice.
