Quarterback Jameis Winston had a pointed departing message for the Bucs. Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback Jameis Winston has close ties to the state of Florida, from his time at Florida State to being drafted first overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015.

Now that’s over. 

The Buccaneers signed former Patriots QB Tom Brady, leaving Winston to find a new organization after five years in Tampa. With that in mind, Winston sent a goodbye post on social media that came with something of a guarantee.

This season’s Super Bowl is set to be played in Tampa, so Winston certainly thinks he’ll be finding his way back. 

He may have to do it as a backup since there doesn't appear to be any starting jobs available to him at the moment. 

Winston led the NFL last season with 5,109 passing yards and was second with 33 TDs. He also led the league with 30 interceptions. 

He perhaps can understand why the Buccaneers would prefer Brady, but the former top pick has some work to do to find a job of his own.
