The NFL offseason has been underway ever since the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl in February. Players use this time to be away from the limelight and tend to the injuries they suffered during the season. However, the offseason is also filled with the NFL Free Agency and the NFL Drafts, which makes this time quite interesting for the franchises and their management.

Drew Brees, one of the most prolific quarterbacks of the NFL, recently announced his retirement from the sport. The New Orleans Saints are in need of a quarterback who can take his place in the side. Critics have touted Jameis Winston to be the next regular quarterback for the Saints.

TV analyst Jay Williams talked about the impending performance pressure waiting for Jameis Winston at the start of this upcoming season. He said that Winston is expected to chase the “ghost of Drew Brees”.

In his show KJZ, Jay talked about what Winston brings to the table. He said, “The stats speak for itself. You’re coming into the shoes of Brees. Now into a turnkey system where expectations are high. We know what the past history of Jameis Winston has been. Those are huge shoes to fill for somebody we initially thought lacked maturity.” 

He continued, “Now we’re seeing him for the first time after a couple of years. That’s a lot of pressure for Jameis Winston.” Bart Scott lauded Winston for his stats. He said, “Winston is going into the safest possible space at the moment. The Saints have an entire system set up for him. This is a guy who recorded 5000 yards last time as a full-time starter.”

The NFL Draft 2021 will take place on 29th April and will continue till 1st May. Jacksonville Jaguars will have the opportunity of taking the first pick. The new NFL season commences on 9th September in the fall.
