If Jameis Wilson wants a backup job with the New Orleans Saints, he is going to have to play by their rules.
However, he must do something for them first.
The Saints have offered Winston a restructured contract to return next season, ESPN’s Dianna Russini reports. If he does not accept the offer by March 15th, he will be cut from the roster.
Prior to last season, Winston signed a two-year, $28 million contract as he entered the year as the starting QB.
Now that he knows he will be a backup with the Saints, it’s up to him to figure out if there is a team in the NFL that will allow him to battle for a starting QB role. If not, he may as well stay where he is at.
Winston played in just three games last season before suffering back and ankle injuries.
