Signs continue to point to the New Orleans Saints choosing Jameis Winston as Drew Brees' successor at starting quarterback whenever the future Hall of Famer hangs up his cleats.
The latest indication came from New Orleans defensive end Cameron Jordan. Speaking on the "Great Dane Nation" podcast with former Saints kicker Morten Andersen, Jordan was asked who will be under center if Brees decides to retire.
"Jameis Winston up next I believe is what (head coach) Sean Payton said," Jordan explained.
Winston is scheduled to become a free agent in March. He signed with the Saints on a one-year, $1.1-million deal prior to the 2020 season and then spent the campaign backing up Brees and Taysom Hill. When Brees missed multiple weeks with rib fractures, the Saints turned to Hill rather than Winston.
