Jameis Winston participating in on-field work at OTAs

The Saints and Jameis Winston have pointed toward Week 1 for his return. That seems like a certainty barring a setback.

The Saints’ official Twitter account posted photos of Winston participating in on-field drills at organized team activities Wednesday.

Winston tore his anterior cruciate ligament in an Oct. 31 game against the Buccaneers, requiring season-ending surgery and putting his 2022 season in question. The question now has been answered.

Winston, 28, threw 14 touchdowns, three interceptions, and the Saints had a 5-2 record in Winston’s seven starts.

He will have an even better receiving corps this season with the return of Michael Thomas and the additions of Jarvis Landry and Chris Olave.

  1. Was he throwing to Michael Thomas by any chance? I thi k everybody will feel more secure with a solid addition at running back. Adding Darrell Williams or even better getting Latavious Murray back would sure give a warm and fuzzy to all.

  2. Deepest sympathy for the naive Fans!
    Saints have NO chance at the division title until they make an upgrade at QB… How many years does it take to realize a qb just isn’t going to be a winner at this level?!…

  3. While idiotic money is being thrown at the likes of Watson and Murray, I think Winston will outdo both of them, and many other QBs, if he stays healthy. I think the Saints made the right call sticking with him.

  4. If only the Saints had a real starting QB one could trust over a full season of games. Winston is just such an erratic starting QB it’s basically impossible to trust him, he is what he is which is an average QB and that’s not good enough for the Saints to win the South. Next year the Saints need to ensure they land a franchise QB with a handful of excellent prospects coming out next years class is billed as one of the best classes to come out in a long time. I’d love to see the Saints land one and find Brees successor as I don’t see Winston as being that guy.

    Darrell Williams signed with AZ on Wednesday so he’s now a Cardinal. I was a bit shocked just because of how deep AZ is at RB plus drafting a very talented/good young back who’s a perfect fit for that system. With the signing of Williams Arizona now has 3 big tough runners whom are dual threat backs whom excel in the passing game particularly Williams n rookie K. Ingram.

  6. Winston is probably the most underrated quarterback in all of football. I think it’s all still in front of him.

    Obviously you don’t watch much Saints or Bucs football. Saints lost games last year because they were decimated by COVID losses and injuries. Saints finished 9-8 and the Bucs 13-4. Saints beat the Bucs twice last year despite the injuries – even shut them out on their home field. I would bet on the healthy Saints team winning that division.

    Granted that Brees was a once in a generation QB, but Winston showed an enormous amount of discipline and maturity last year both in his play and in his overall conduct. Whether that was strictly a result of Payton’s coaching and oversight remains to be seen, but I believe that he has learned and progressed, and will continue on the good path under Dennis Allen.

  9. Yeah, I have seen Winston a lot in Tampa… Every year during off season, people make excuses for him and talk big about how he is going to ‘miraculously’ be amazing at the position the coming season, just to prove those people SO wrong!

    The only thing Winston has shown at the qb position is this:
    He is like a leach between the toes of someone with swamp foot… He both sucks and stinks as a qb! Saints would be much more of a threat lead by Dalton!

  10. Good for Winston- feels good man.

    He turned around early career/college issues, focused and has been serious about improving.

    He has his head on straight and looking to taste that W!
