It’s still a bit of a shock that this sentence is a factual statement, but Tom Brady is the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jameis Winston is now a free agent and out of a job and so far the market for last season’s passing yards leader isn’t too active.
With Brady out of New England, the Patriots are in need of a quarterback but have elected to sign Brian Hoyer instead of going after a more flashy name like Cam Newton, Andy Dalton or Winston. While there are a couple of other teams around the league in need of a legitimate starting quarterback, or at the very least a backup that can compete for the starting role, Winston’s future in the NFL right now is completely up in the air.
Winston has been active on social media over the last few days showing off his workouts and on Monday he decided to take things to a different level by pushing an SUV up a hill.

According to TMZ, the car Winston is pushing up the hill is a 2020 Ford Expedition that weighs anywhere between 5,500 and 5,800 pounds.
While I don’t have the data in front of me to support this, I don’t think that pushing an SUV up a hill will improve Winston’s ability to throw a football, but hey, shout out to him for being really strong.
Winston led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards a season ago but also became the first player in NFL history to throw 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in the same season.
