Fourteen years ago, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees signed a picture for a 12-year-old boy in Birmingham, Alabama.

Brees had an appointment with his shoulder surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, and a sixth-grader named Jameis Winston asked the recovering Brees for an autograph.

The two met again in 2015, and had been NFC South rivals ever since.

Until this week.

Now they're teammates.



The former Florida State quarterback said Brees has always been there for him when he's needed advice, dating back to when they reunited in San Diego before Winston went No. 1 in the 2015 NFL draft.

"He's always been a guy that I can hit up during the season and ask a question, and he'll get back with me," Winston said. "I just love the person that he is and the guy that he is, and Iím so excited to learn from him and help serve him in any way."

You can't fix stupid. But Winston is taking the right approach to set himself up for success. Maybe he's not stupid.....we'll find out.

Some kinda Karma going on here with Winston the story of the autograph was pretty amazing.
I've seen a lot of seasons with the Saints but honestly I never thought I would see Jameis in Black & Gold.

I really think this is a win win for both the Saints and Jameis. The Saints have all the weapons on offense and a great O-line so Jameis won't feel like he has to carry the team when he is on the field. Sean Payton will reduce his mistakes and maximize his abilities. I think Jameis will flourish in New Orleans.
