Winston’s habit of giving the ball to the other team is the main reason why the 2019 leader in passing yards is unsigned and has no clear landing as a starter. “data-reactid =” 17 “> Winston lost his job as Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback when the team signed Brady.

Godwin defended his former teammate, saying that half of Winston’s interceptions last season were not his fault.

Chris Godwin defends Jameis Winston

Interceptions are always on the quarterback’s record, but not all intercepts are a QB mistake. A receiver may be going the wrong way or even a little out of position. Sometimes defenses make a great game. The quarterback is always the one to answer about it.

“I think he got more of the debt than he earned,” said Godwin. “I think he’s a very, very talented quarterback. Clearly, there are things he does that you cannot teach, and there are plays he made that just weren’t smart plays.

“But many of the mistakes and interceptions he made I would say half were due to a bad reading by someone else.”

Winston is looking for a new team

Not only will Winston not change teams, the 26-year-old former first overall pick out of a 5,109-meter season may not even start in 2020. “data-reactid =” 38 “> Winston is a unique case. At least 1967, no quarterback leading the NFL in passing yards switched teams the following season (h / t to Greg Auman from The Athletic). Not only will Winston switch teams, the 26-year-old former first overall pick coming out of a 5,109-meter season may not even start in 2020.

Like it Cam Newton and the Cincinnati Bengals trying to trade Andy Dalton, Winston will likely find that not many teams are looking for a new starting quarterback. Teams have an established option, will line up or have someone they have spoken to themselves. The likely disrupted off-season will not push teams on the fence at quarterback to a drastic move. “Data-reactid =” 39 “> Like Cam Newton and the Cincinnati Bengals trying to trade Andy Dalton, Winston is likely to find that not many teams are looking for a new starting quarterback.

In other words, Winston (and Newton and Dalton) picked a bad time to look for a budding quarterback job. At least Godwin is around to write a letter of recommendation.
