The Facts: After over a month in free agency, Winston has found a new home, and it's back in the NFC South. The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback to a one-year deal.
Diehards Line:Replaced this spring by a living legend in Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, Winston will now play under another, Drew Brees, in the Bayou. The veteran Saints signal-caller just recently signed a two-year deal through 2021 to remain New Orleans' starter, but also inked a lucrative deal with NBC Sports, on which he could cash in whenever he retires. If and when Brees does leave New Orleans, perhaps at the end of the 2020 season, Winston could be the next man up. But the former No. 1 overall pick will have competition. Behind Brees, the Saints employ Taysom Hill, whom they signed to a one-year tender at the first-round level this offseason. New Orleans also traded back into the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft on Saturday to select Mississippi State QB Tommy Stevens.
