The Tampa Bay Bucs went out and did something nobody thought would ever happen, and that’s pry Tom Brady away from the New England Patriots and sign him to a 2-year deal.
There were rumors that the Buccaneers had favored Teddy Bridgewater if they couldn’t land Brady and if they couldn’t land either, the team would set their sights back to Winston. Head coach Bruce Arians actually admitted that in an interview with Rich Eisen.
“[A Winston re-up] didn’t work out for us only because [Brady] was available and we had [Bridgewater] if that wouldn’t have worked out,” Arians said. “We were going full steam ahead back with Jameis.”
Arians has been doing his part to find a team to take Winston on, stating he has been reaching out to other franchises recommending the former No. 1 overall pick as a signal-caller.
“I’ve called a couple teams,” Arians told Rich Eisen. “You’re going to get one of the hardest workers you’ve ever had and a great young man…no one is going to outwork him.”
As of right now, there has been no rumors to where Winston might actually end up, and when he does, he is looking at being a back-up QB.
The 26-year-old quarterback tossed for over 5,000 yards and 33 touchdowns, but he also added a putrid 30 interceptions.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
