Jameis Winston will remain with Saints

Dan Patrick sits down with Drew Brees as they unpack his experience at the NFL combine.

Derek Carr is set to be the new starting quarterback in New Orleans, but the Saints will have a familiar face as their backup.

Jameis Winston told Josina Anderson of CBS Sports that he was finalizing a deal to remain with the Saints. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it is a one-year deal worth up to $8 million.

Winston was due to make $12.8 million this season and word late last week that the Saints were talking to him about remaining with the team after taking a pay cut. With chairs getting filled around the league, Winston opted to stay in a familiar spot.

Winston started the first three games of the 2022 season, but was replaced by Andy Dalton after hurting his back and he never got back into the lineup.
