Quarterback Jameis Winston is officially heading to the New Orleans Saints after reaching a one-year deal Tuesday, the team announced.
The deal has a base value of $1.1 million, a source told ESPN’s Field Yates, with a salary of $952,000 and a signing bonus of $148,000. Winston can earn $3.4 million in incentives.
Winston, 26, is hoping to experience the same type of career revival in New Orleans that Teddy Bridgewater did under the tutelage of coach Sean Payton and starting quarterback Drew Brees.
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Winston was displaced in Tampa Bay when the Buccaneers signed Tom Brady last month. Although Winston led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards in 2019, he also became the first quarterback in league history to throw for at least 30 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions in the same season.
