Los Angeles Chargers Reject Cam Newton
The Los Angeles Chargers rejected Jameis Winston recently.
Last week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Tom Brady to a multi-year deal. As a result, Winston was left without a team heading into next year.
Many have wondered if perhaps, with Philip Rivers now a member of he Indianapolis Colts, Winston may find a home with the Chargers.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, that is an unlikely scenario.
“There is not another obvious landing spot for Jameis Winston where he can compete for a starting job on day one—not on the surface right now,” he said.
“The Chargers are not going to be interested in Jameis Winston at this point in time. The New England Patriots signed Brian Hoyer, and so we’ve got a situation where Jameis Winston finds himself much in the same situation that Ryan Tannehill was in last year.
“It’s no longer a question of Jameis Winston finding a starting job. It’s finding the right job that he believes has the chance to grow in the future, maybe compete for the job and better his situation for the 2021 season. But he’s not going to land a starting job on paper for 2020.”
Last year Winston amassed 5,109 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, along with 30 picks.
