Jameis Winston stays in New Orleans by modifying his contract

The hierarchy of Saints quarterbacks is finalizing. According to ESPN, Jameis Winston has agreed to change his contract to stay in the Bayou.

While he was due to receive a base salary of $12.8 million in 2023, the former incumbent will finally accept a new one-year contract for $4 million in base value. Performance bonuses can raise his total to 8 million. But for that, you will have to play…

The operation allows the Saints to free up space in the wage bill while ensuring that they have an experienced replacement behind Derek Carr. Because that’s what it’s all about: assigning the number two position. In fact, Andy Dalton’s departure has been confirmed, and Taysom Hill will surely continue to lend a hand in gadget stocks.

Last season, Winston started three games, with 4 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. A performance that earned him being benched behind Dalton, who did not always do much better. At least, this year, the hierarchy will be clearer, whether on the level or the salaries.
