— New Orleans Saints (@Saints) October 1, 2022
Winston, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He played out the 2019 season under the fifth-year option from his rookie contract and made a base salary of $20.922 million.
Winston signed with the Saints on a one-year, $1.1 million deal in 2020 and returned to New Orleans on another one-year contract worth up to $12 million in 2021 as the starter. He, unfortunately, tore his ACL after eight games.
The Saints re-signed him this offseason to a two-year deal with a maximum value of $28 million.
In 2022, Winston has appeared in three games for the Saints and passed for 858 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions.
We will have more news on Winston as it becomes available.
