Backup QB plan

The upside is there, but I've seen enough from him that I don't think he'll ever come near reaching his potential. Being beat out by Taysom Hill as Brees' backup last year convinced me. I'd pass, but if he were cheap enough I wouldn't hate it. Just wouldn't have any confidence that it'd work out here.

I genuinely don't think he was 'beat out' by Hill.

I think Payton spent the year reworking Winston as a QB because he sees him as the long term solution. He much preferred to throw Hill to the wolves rather than unleash Winston before he's ready.

I guess we'll see if I'm right - if they let Winston walk I'm obviously not.

Jameis has more talent and ability in his little toe and Bridgewater. I’ll take him and his stupid antics all day over watching another pass thrown by Bridgewater in electric blue. I’d be fine with Jameis as a backup backup option, with our eye on who we’re going to trade up for next year (Howell hopefully). Spend #8 on an OT in that scenario.
