The Buccaneers found a dramatic upgrade at quarterback last week, signing six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady . This has left free agent signal caller Jameis Winston out in the cold after five seasons with the squad with Tampa Bay.
Despite moving on from @Jaboowins for TB12, @Buccaneers head coach @BruceArians told @richeisen what he's doing for his former QB to assure Jameis Winston has a job in 2020: pic.twitter.com/84xMrLB4nZ— Rich Eisen Show (@RichEisenShow) March 24, 2020
Arians said that he’s called a couple teams to talk up Winston, a player he considers one of the hardest workers in the NFL.
Winston, 26, is coming off a 2019 season that saw him lead the NFL with 5,109 passing yards while throwing 33 touchdown passes and a whopping 30 interceptions.
As of right now, the only market available to the former No. 1 pick is as a backup. That doesn’t promise to change any time soon.
At the very least, it appears that his former head coach is going to bat for him. Whether that helps Winston latch on with a team remains to be seen.
