It sounds like the New Orleans Saints might ride with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

Winston was the starting quarterback for the Saints last season, but his year came to an end early when he suffered an ACL injury. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Now, he appears on track to suit up in 2022, and it sounds like the Saints are very interested in re-signing him.

According to Nick Underhill, general manager Mickey Loomis said, “Jameis is an option for us and we hope we’re an option for Jameis.”

Seeing as how Taysom Hill doesn’t exactly look like he’s going to pan out at quarterback, the Saints should be having serious talks with Winston and his agent about returning.

He could easily get a very nice payday to get back under center for the Saints. The QB options in the draft are laughably bad, Hill and Ian Book aren’t viable options right now and we all know you can’t win in the NFL with terrible quarterback play.

Winston is consistent and dependable. He might not be a superstar, but he can do more than enough to make plays to win games.

We’ll see how it all ultimately shakes out, but New Orleans should absolutely pursue this.
