Bruce Arians Called Multiple NFL Teams to Sell Them on Jameis Winston

Luke Easterling

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have themselves a new starting quarterback in Tom Brady, but where will their old one land?

Jameis Winston is still a free agent, and with most of the league's starting jobs already dried up, the best he's likely to find is a place where he can be a backup and potentially challenge the starter.

As Winston tries to find his next landing spot, he's got someone in his corner trying to sell other teams in the league on his abilities: Bucs head coach Bruce Arians.

Appearing on the Rich Eisen Show, Arians said he's picked up the phone himself and contacted multiple teams in an effort to sell them on Winston:

Winston's turnovers were ultimately his undoing in Tampa Bay, but he's still just 26 years old, and leaves Tampa Bay as the Bucs' all-time leader in every major passing category. He led the NFL with 5,109 passing yards last year, becoming just the eighth player in league history to throw for over 5,000 yards in a single season. His 33 touchdown passes in 2019 were second only to NFL MVP Lamar Jackson. His 30 interceptions cost him his job.

Wherever Winston lands, as Arians asserted, that team will be getting a hard-working player with still tons of potential.

Arians may have his hand-picked passer in Brady, but that isn't keeping him from helping out his old quarterback.

Glad that Arains still has Winstons back in some ways. I am sure that he will land on his feet somewhere.

No. 1-11

Jameis Winston is a piece of s*** a rapist a thief and a womanizer. Is the worst quarterback in the last 30 years to try to play the game. His decision-making on the field is as bad as his decision-making off the field. This guy will not even end up playing Arena Football this guy will end up a child molester in prison f*** Jameis Winston AKA ignoramus Jameis

I'm sure Jameis will be picked by another team. Tom Brady isn't all that. He is a sore loser. I still stand with Jameis.

Thats 4 games That the Bucs should have won NOT LOSE how about reporting on that Bruce is sound alseep ZERO RUNNING GAME just passing and last time I checked The guys on D get paid and they KNOW they cant run the ball (DUH)
NFL playoffs lesson for the Bucs: Don’t forget the running game
John Romano | Six of the top seven running teams made the playoffs. Five of the top six passing teams did not. The Bucs can’t ignore the run.

How about Texans game The 2 best WR's are out all backups in game, and they lose 23-20 The kicker had his kick blocked, A WR ran the wrong pattern for a INT and OJ Howard dropped a perfect pass for a TD late in game OFF his hands and then on 4th down Brate had a ball in his hands by himself fall to ground
and the loss is on Winston? 23-20 with all those INT and they should have won

this was the falcons loss before Winston INT in over time this is what really happened First the OT caught a 40 yd td pass (insane) and then this Bucs kicker left nine points on the board in Tampa Bay’s overtime loss to the Falcons

He better, he had jameis throw the ball all the time no running game was sacked 46X, His kicker lost 4 games for Bucs should have been 11-5 And Big Bruce let the Falcons OT catch a 40 yd TD pass He better stand up for Winston He should be fired and his INT's well we know OJ gave the other team 2 how many guys ran the wrong patterns? Even Bruce said it was only 20 INT's
