A day after longtime quarterback Drew Brees retired, the New Orleans Saints may have signed his successor.

The Saints and quarterback Jameis Winston agreed to a one-year contract, a league source confirmed. The Athletic first reported the news, and subsequent reports indicated the deal will pay Winston $5.5 million in base salary with potential to earn up to $12 million after hitting incentives.



Winston essentially confirmed the news himself after the news broke, tweeting: "Who dat!" The Saints announced the transaction late Monday night.

Re: Winston signed

I guess we had no competition for his services. Cheap contract. Kind of like the old Billy Joe days, huh?

I can see it, even though I know Hill would never beat Winston in an open competition. Hes just so loved.

I don't see either as a viable future. Sure, either can do okay. Both are free next year, as are the Saints. It's wait and see for a year. Hell, the preseason isn't over yet. We can still pick up another via draft.

I believe in Jameis Winston. I believe in his arm talent, football IQ, and work ethic. I believe in him as a leader as well. He might be the most talented QB to ever put on the uniform. Of course, Brees in his prime is the better QB. Thats without question, but Winston has the skill level to really shock the world. Right now, I believe Winston is a better QB than Brees.
