Report: Few coaches have interest in working with Jameis Winston
Jameis Winston is having a hard time finding interest in the NFL, at least from coaching staffs.
According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, most of the limited interest in Winston is coming from front offices. Coaches are less enthused about working with the quarterback and are not driving any interest in the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, who threw a league-worst 30 interceptions last season.
Many coaches have a high opinion of Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians, who is seen throughout the game as a quarterback guru. There is a wariness that if Arians was unable to fix Winston’s major turnover issues, nobody else will be able to either.
We’ve heard Arians talk about how Winston regressed during the year. It’s the opposite of a ringing endorsement from a coach regarded as a quarterback whisperer.
Winston will probably land somewhere, but it sounds like he’ll be in a backup role for the foreseeable future.
