Report: Few Coaches Have Interest In Working With Jameis Winston
Former Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston future in the NFL is looking grim as almost no reports are stating any teams are showing any interest in him.
The limited interest in Winston is actually coming from front offices, according to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report.
“That’s because of the belief that if someone like Arians, whom one coach called one of the most underrated quarterback gurus in NFL history, can’t fix Winston’s turnover issues, no one can.”
The 2015 No. 1 overall pick passed for a career-high 5,109 yards and 33 touchdowns, but he also had 30 interceptions.
Bucs head coach Bruce Arians spoke on his turnovers.
“For Jameis, for me, it was the last two ballgames, the regression back to the interceptions,” Arians recently said on CBS Sports Radio’s Tiki and Tierney. “… It was disheartening because he had made progress, then he regressed.
“I think for him, it’s to get into somewhere as a backup right now,” Arians added. “It looks like all the starting jobs are done. Get in somewhere where he can sit and learn the system. Maybe a year, for an older person and take over, or get in competition with a younger guy.”
Even with the amount of turnovers he has thrown since his time in the league, Winston will land somewhere, but more than likely as a backup QB.
