  • Saints Will Be Flexible At Quarterback Position

    New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the team wants to maintain flexibility in the process of deciding who the starting quarterback will be over the coming months. The competition will be between Jameis Winston, Taysom Hill and possibly a rookie and will take place through the spring and summer months. "The most important thing is leading this team, leading the offense to scoresprotecting the football and scoring," Payton said. The offense will be built with flexibility to play either Winston or Hill, two signal-callers with vastly different styles. There is a possibility that both players share duties on offense on a weekly basis. Winston is more of a pocket passer with more fantasy upside in New Orleans' offense, but Hill also has some appeal because of his athleticism and his ability to use his legs. Winston will have QB1 upside if he wins the starting job, but this will be a situation to watch as we head into the summer months.

  • Jameis Winston, Taysom Hill To Compete At Quarterback

    New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he expects quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2021 after Drew Brees announced his retirement this week. Hill has been impressive for his versatility, but his viability as a full-time starter under center seems less appealing with Brees now retired. Winston, although turnover-prone in his career, has intriguing upside as the starter. Hill took the job when Brees was injured in 2020 because of his experience and the fact that Winston hadn't been with the team for a full calendar year. Winston, the former No. 1 overall pick, probably has the advantage in the competition, and he could have some QB1 upside in this offense if he wins the job this summer.

  • Jameis Winston Officially Returning To Saints

    The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Jameis Winston worked out a one-year deal on Monday with base salary of $5.5 million guaranteed. Winston can earn as much as $12 million through incentives, according to a league source. The former first overall pick and Heisman Trophy winner spent his first five seasons with the Buccaneers before signing a one-year deal last year with the Saints. The Bears were serious suitors for his services before he returned to New Orleans. The 27-year-old completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 19,737 yards, 121 touchdowns and 88 interceptions with Tampa. He led the league with 5,109 passing yards in 2019, but also became the first QB in history to throw at least 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. Winston will compete for the starting gig in training camp with Taysom Hill.

  • Drew Brees Retires, Jameis Winston Likely Starter

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees officially announced his retirement on Sunday, 15 years to the day after he signed with the New Orleans Saints. It was a busy day of quarterback news for the team, as they signed Taysom Hill to a four-year, $140 million extension, though each year of the deal is voidable and it appears to be a move to save salary cap space, not an investment in Hill. Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport reports that Jameis Winston is likely going to go into 2021 as the starter in New Orleans. Technically a free agent, the former No. 1 overall pick has a strong arm and could help wide receiverMichael Thomas return to the top of the wide receiver position in terms of fantasy output, though Winston did throw 30 interceptions in his last season as a starter in Tampa.
