Quarterbacks like Philip Rivers will be in search of a new home this offseason, and now that Drew Brees is coming back to New Orleans for another year, it leaves the futures of both Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill in New Orleans are uncertain.
There’s also this guy named Tom Brady who may or may not return back to New England. Now many are talking about Jameis Winston and his future in Tampa.
The 2015 No. 1 overall pick is can be astounding and a headache at the same time. His 2019 stat prove that as he threw for 33 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions.
If he doesn’t head back to Tampa — Peter King seems to think he would perfect for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I think I really want the Steelers to sign Jameis Winston,” King wrote in his latest Football Morning In America column for NBC Sports. “Sit for a year, get him ready to conditionally succeed Ben Roethlisberger, and if the interceptions continue in 2021, he’s gone after one season. Risky, but the upside could be pretty great. Now, the contract would have to be one Winston would want to do; he’d likely have a chance to play sooner elsewhere if he leaves Tampa. I’m just talking about a coach-player relationship (Mike Tomlin-Winston) dynamic I’d like to see. Plus, I’d rather have Winston on the rebound than Mason Rudolph or Devlin Hodges or a draft pick that could be used in a wiser way.”
His skill is awfully similar to Ben Roethlisberger, except he makes way more bad decisions on the field.
If you can get that under control, Winston can be one of the most dominant quarterbacks in the league. That very well might happen next season, especially after he reportedly had surgery to fix his eyesight.
