Bruce Arians wants more consistency from Jameis Winston
Bruce Arians is entering his first season as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach, and getting the most out of Jameis Winston will be his greatest task. He already recognizes that.
Arians was interviewed by ESPN’s Trey Wingo during the network’s coverage of the draft on Saturday and was asked what he wants and needs from Winston.
“Just more consistency,” Arians said. “Quit throwing it to the other team, and make better decisions. Athletic ability is there, the arm is there. Hopefully with the defensive (draft) picks, we won’t be playing from 20 behind.”
Winston, the No. 1 overall pick in 2015, has thrown 58 interceptions in 56 games — way too high of a mark for an NFL QB. This is a continuation of what he showed in college when he threw for 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions in 2014 at Florida State before leaving for the draft.
If anyone can get the most out of Winston, it’s Arians. He got some great seasons out of Carson Palmer in Arizona and even brought the most out of Drew Stanton.
