Jameis Winston, Saints Officially Agree On Quarterback’s One-Year Deal

The New Orleans Saints have made it official.

Jameis Winston lost his job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when Tom Brady, one of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks, agreed to a deal in free agency. Now, Winston will be backing up another one of the league’s most recognized signal-callers in Drew Brees.

The Saints on Tuesday announced they’d signed Winston to a one-year contract, via a statement released on Twitter. The details of the agreement were not included.

The former No. 1 pick has been expected to sign with New Orleans since Sunday, and reportedly took a less lucrative contract for the opportunity to learn under Brees and head coach Sean Payton.

Winston threw for a league-best 5,109 yards last season. He compiled an impressive 33 touchdowns and, impressive but not in a good way, 30 interceptions.

Winston is coming off of offseason Lasik surgery that he hopes will help take care of that interception problem.

This is a great landing spot for the 26-year-old.
