It’s a very strange time right now, folks. Not only is the majority of the world stuck inside and practicing social distancing, but Tom Brady just signed with a team that has a pirate ship in its stadium and the Patriots are looking for a quarterback.
With Brady taking over in Tampa Bay, that means last season’s passing yards leader Jameis Winston is looking for a new home. There have been rumors suggesting that the Pats could pull off a true swap and sign Winston, but according to a report from Michael Giardi of NFL Network, New England isn’t interested in bringing in Winston.
Cody Kessler and Jarrett Stidham are the only two quarterbacks on New England’s roster at the moment and seeing as how those two have appeared in a combined 20 NFL games, going out and signing Winston probably wouldn’t be the worst move imaginable. Only time will tell, however, the direction Bill Belichick and the Brady-less Pats will go when it comes to their quarterback situation.
Winston led the NFL in passing yards a season ago with 5,109 yards and also became the first quarterback in league history to throw 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in a single season. The 26-year-old has thrown 121 touchdowns and 81 interceptions in 72 career games.
