Jameis Winston’s future as a starter in the league took a huge hit when Tom Brady decided to come in and sign with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Despite throwing for over 5,000 yards and having 33 touchdowns, his major flaw continued to be his turnovers as he tossed 30 interceptions in what was his final year in Tampa Bay.
Winston now is in search of a new home, and while the Patriots don’t appear poised to pursue the No. 1 overall back in 2015.
Mike Florio believes New England could provide a revitalization of Winston’s career.
“I’d go with the New England Patriots,” Florio said on NBC Sports when asked to pick a darkhorse landing spot for Winston. “I mean, Brian Hoyer, Jarrett Stidham. The longer Bill Belichick is looking at that as his depth chart and reminds himself 5,100 passing yards for Jameis Winston last year. I mean, if anybody can break Jameis Winston out of the, ‘What the hell were you just doing?’ mindset, it’s gonna be Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels. So, that’s attractive to me.”
The 26-year-old spent the first five years of his career with the Buccaneers.
Winston is likely to find a job, but only as a back-up, especially with the 2020 NFL Draft coming up.
