Winston declares himself one of the best

JAMEIS WINSTON said recently that he is “historically one of the best quarterbacks to play the game”. Winston was the top overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft but became theMore NFL’s first 30-interception quarterback in over 30 years last season. While Winston sounds as confident as ever, he will enter the 2020 season as the backup quarterback behind DREW BREES in New Orleans. Less

Factoid: Ryan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill connected on a bunch of downfield passes last year. He and Matthew Stafford were the only quarterbacks to produce pass plays of 20-plus yards on over 20 percent of their completions. But I don’t expect he’ll be able to keep that up.  more »



Saints re-sign Hill to two-year deal

New Orleans quarterback TAYSOM HILL officially signed a two-year contract extension to remain with the Saints for at least the next couple of seasons. While Hill is technically listed as aMore quarterback, he lined up more often at tight end last season in addition to starring on special teams. The Saints were busy tending to their QB corps on Sunday, reportedly signing free agent JAMEIS WINSTON to a one-year deal. Less

Saints to sign QB Winston

The quarterback surprises keep on coming, even after the 2020 NFL Draft has concluded. With the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles selecting quarterbacks JORDAN LOVE and JALEN HURTS in theMore draft, the New Orleans Saints provided another surprise on Sunday morning. The Saints are expected to sign former Tampa Bay quarterback JAMEIS WINSTON to a 1-year deal. Less

Around the NFL: The Bizarro Drew Brees

So Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports that Jameis Winston is on the verge of signing a contract -- with the Saints, to back up Drew Brees. If there's a more surprising fit between team and quarterback, I'm not sure what it is.   more »



Bucs sign QB Gabbert as Brady backup

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarterback BLAINE GABBERT to a one-year contract, ensuring a veteran presence behind new starter TOM BRADY. Gabbert started the 2019 season as the backup behind quarterbackMore JAMEIS WINSTON, but he did not play a single snap. He was placed on injured reserve in September after dislocating his shoulder in the preseason. Gabbert is familiar with head coach Bruce Arians’ offense, so there’s that. Less

Taylor in driver’s seat for starting QB gig

Los Angles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said this week that TYROD TAYLOR is in the driver’s seat for the starting quarterback role. Unfortunately for fantasy owners crafting their draft boards,More Lynn followed up his comment by adding that “nothing is finalized”. With quarterbacks like CAM NEWTON and JAMEIS WINSTON still available in free agency, and the NFL Draft on the horizon, this is a situation worth watching in the weeks ahead. Less

Andy Richardson: Waiting for Winston

I'm surprised that no one has signed Jameis Winston. I get that he throws a lot of interceptions, so NFL decision-makers have a different perspective on the guy than me, a fantasy football writer. But if you can set aside the turnovers (and clearly Bruce Arians couldn't), he's been pretty impressive.   more »



Brady goes to Bucs, Winston era ends

The Tampa Bay Bucs signed star quarterback TOM BRADY earlier this week, signaling the end of the rocky JAMEIS WINSTON era. The Bucs threw for more yards than any NFL teamMore for the past four seasons, yet they failed to make a single playoff appearance. The Bucs are expected to improve in real football in 2020, with Brady far less likely to surrender field position and pick sixes at the rate that Winston did during his tenure. The fantasy impact will be interesting to follow. Less

Around the NFL: Remaining QB market

Teddy Bridgewater gets a starting job. Neither Philip Rivers nor Tom Brady is riding off into the sunset – they’re playing. And suddenly it’s becoming a buyer’s market for quarterbacks. There are now more available options than teams needing to fill the position.  more »


Andy Richardson: Quarterback predictions

Slow football news day, so I'm going to turn my attention to what everyone can't stop talking about. How this remarkable market of free-agent quarterbacks is going to shake out, from top to bottom.   more »


Factoid: Jameis Winston

The Buccaneers are among the teams that could possibly bring in a new starting quarterback, and I’m of the school of thought it will play out that way. Bruce Arians has consistently been throwing shade on Jameis Winston over the last few months.  more »



Winston underwent surgery on meniscus

Tampa Bay quarterback JAMEIS WINSTON reportedly underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Winston also dealt with a hairline fracture in his throwing thumb last year and underwent LASIK eye surgeryMore after the season. With Winston on the mend heading into free agency, it will be interesting to see if he remains a part of the Bucs future. Less



Winston has eye surgery to improve vision

Tampa Bay quarterback JAMEIS WINSTON recently underwent Lasik surgery to repair nearsightedness - a condition in which a person sees near objects clearly, while objects in the distance are blurred. Ironically,More Winston did a better job throwing the deep ball this season with accuracy than at any point in his career. Time will tell if Winston’s new and improved vision helps him to cut down on a career-high 30 interceptions. Less

Around the NFL: Philip Rivers

The Chargers are officially parting ways with Philip Rivers, whose passing records for the team will probably last quite a long time. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly interested (though they seem to be interested in virtually every quarterback not named Jameis Winston). Will Rivers be a good free agent catch?  more »
