The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled off the coup of the NFL offseason last week by signing six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady. This move follows a 2019 campaign during which Buccaneers starter Jameis Winston threw 30 interceptions.
While Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has been supportive in helping Winston land another job, he took time out of his day on Wednesday to indirectly shade the free agent. The veteran coach also believes that his Buccaneers have a shot at Super Bowl contention next season.
Bruce Arians says he thinks the Bucs are capable of going from 7-9 in 2019 to Super Bowl contention in 2020. He says talent is not an issue; the problem last year was turnovers.— Scott Smith (@ScottSBucs) March 25, 2020
While Arians didn’t mention Winston by name, it’s hard to miss what he was referring to here. Winston’s 30 interceptions doomed the Buccaneers’ ship last season. Winston accounted for more than two turnovers per start. Meanwhile, Brady has totaled 29 interceptions over the past four years.
